Importation with payment of VAT on the hull

Home / Solutions / Detail Services
Legal ownership vehicles
VAT is due on yachts imported into the EU and on yachts purchased and owned by residents of the EU who are using them privately within the EU.

Options include utilising legal ownership vehicles including leasing structures to mitigate the amount of VAT to be paid, or paying VAT in France on the value of the hull. 

H&V Yachting can provide information about leasing structures and how they work and/or assist and organize VAT payment formalities with Fiscal and Customs authorities. We welcome specific enquiries if you have a particular question on this subject.
