Vat

Just has a look back and can't see a final answer on this, my boat was bought privately second hand so I dont have any VAT documentation.

Is this going to be a problem?

No, hundreds of yachts cross each year and Alderney rely on the tourist trade. Harbour staff always very helpful and friendly. Bring a copy of the bill of sale, register with SSR and carry a copy of the insurance stuff etc.

Chris, it would be worth the previous owner before its to late to sign a bill of sale. They RYA do a little booklet for buying and selling second hand and there is an example in the back you could use. Whilst is not essential, lots of paperwork does help to prove ownership.

Chris,

The
RYA has some info here:-
http://www.rya.org.uk/KnowledgeBase/...ersonlyvat.htm
Pete7 is right that although it does not prove VAAT is paid, it should help keep other tax authorities off your back, as it should prove the VAT status is the problem of UK customs.

I have the same issue, as many others probably do.

Biggles, all. Been watching the thread for a while and have convinced a couple of friends to come along, therefore count me in please.

Just Looking

Steve

p.s. not sure where to launch from as I am travelling from up North; if you had the choice where is the best to launch where I need:

1) Overnight marina (in case I decide to put the boat in the water on Friday to save a faff Sat)
2) Long stay parking for car and trailer
3) All tidal launch

Just to confirm my earlier post I will be making the crossing in "Red Devil" leaving from Poole. Have done the trip a few times myself and could probably take a few bags if any boats are short of storage space.

Cheers

Mark

depending on where you're coming from and all the other factors etc....
you're more than welcome to come and join us if easier/you wanted.
plenty of parking, easy slip, mine and the others will be in and ready to go over night.
pm me if you're interested....
