Import and Export Procedures arranged through all major Spanish Ports

  • Import VAT in Spain is charged at 21% of the value of the goods to be imported.
  • In some cases Customs Import Duty is also applicable e.g. general goods or yachts not certified for International Navigation.

Intra-community VAT payments on new yachts and general goods

  • Due on goods purchased by EU Residents within EU or EEC Territory.
  • Normally paid or declared at destination or hand-over point.
  • Charged at 21% in Spain.

Temporary Admittance Procedures and Voluntary Customs Bonding

  • Non EU yachts may be used for a total of 18 months in EU waters before EU tax becomes due.
  • To comply with Temporary Admittance requirements, the yacht must be non EU flagged and owned and use is restricted to non EU Residents.
  • In certain areas of Spain it is possible to put the yacht under Voluntary Customs Bond and the total time under bond is deducted from the 18 months’ use.
