The industry grapevine is small and well-oiled, so we often get wind of various ‘experts’ advising yacht brokers and management companies to ‘avoid Spain’. Not only is this sad news, but it’s also unfounded.

We have been processing charter licences day in day out for more than 30 years, and we stay abreast of every new twist and turn in legislation and taxation. Provided you look behind the flag, and look carefully into the tax status of the owning company before entering into commercial operations in Spain, there will undoubtedly be a solution to even the most complicated vessel.

There is no need to ‘avoid Spain’. Network Marine Consultants is here for advice and support – admin@networkmarineconsultants.com or telephone 00 34 971 403 903.
