All SHAPE members are required to de-register their vehicle(s) and/or motorcycle(s) upon permanent transfer and/or departure from SHAPE or when selling a vehicle (whether it is sold in Belgium, in the EU or outside the EU).1.
Firstly, report to the VAT office (Bldg. 210 Room 103) with the Registration Documents for the vehicle in question and request the form 'VAT Permission to Dispose Vehicle'. If you export your vehicle outside EU (when leaving Belgium of by sale) , report to the Customs Office (Bldg.201 Room 101) with the Registration Documents for the vehicle in question, the form 'VAT Permission to Dispose Vehicle' if delivered by the VAT office and request the customs clearance of the vehicle for export.
2. Then report to the Fast Lane office (book an appointment) and either:
- Option 1: hand in the ‘VAT Permission to Dispose Vehicle’ form with the Back Plate
- Option 2: if retaining the back plate due to travel to your next assignment destination, hand in the ‘VAT Permission to Dispose Vehicle’ form along with your Out-Processing Form (SF-52).
Your SHAPE vehicle registration has an expiry date and must be registered in the destination country as soon as possible upon arrival and in line with the regulations for that country.
You MUST return the Back plate either via your support unit or to the following address (Vehicle Reg Office - FSCEP, Rm 108, Bldg. 210 SHAPE Mons, 7010 - Belgium) within 4 weeks from the arrival at your new destination.
