prosport and VAT

Hello,
I have asked prosport this and have not had a reply yet.
So, does anyone know if prosport packages have VAT included in the price, or is it extra?
Thanks, Nick.

they are excluding VAT I think but you will need to get some very good advice to avoid paying it on the way back home, if you avoid it now the problem re-surfaces on re-sale.

Good luck

Ollie

Yup their prices exclude VAT - I will be paying it possibly but then claiming it back - or it MAY be exempt as it will have 12 seats - STILL waiting for some sense from Customs on this one.

I have a form to fill in which I will post off before I bring the boat back - also have to phone the National Yacht Line when we arrive back on the mainland.

Was quite looking forward to smuggling it in - was even going to fly the Jolly Roger but my accountant is coming over with us and he moaned!!!

I wonder how many people actually bother to phone the yacht line???

I wonder how many people actually bother to take their accountant with them to conduct transations.

CP

If memory serves me right the issue is not number of pax ( comercial) for VAT exemption but is GRT and that is 15 tonnes. This, on the basis of VAT excempt for commercial vessels, puts you out of the frame.

The CI are not part of the EU so harmonisation of VAT numbers does not allow for one business to another zero rating. We are aware of this as we export to the CI. I have all the relevant PDF files in the office and if you remind me I will get the office to fwd to you.

However if you register ( by coding and VAT registration) as a UK passenger vessel then your worst case is paying the VAT on import and then claiming back under the business. Do note though that the vessel must be part of the business and not just a hidden pleasure.... maybe your corporate computer days would count ?!! I am unsure as to Duty on the imports but it is well worth looking into as in some cases it can be hard and is not reclaimable.

Also ensure that the builders certificate is acceptable in the UK along with RCD documenation ( in full) and if a coded vessel expect a tube test certificate( detailed) and a SOLAS equivalence declaration and finaly some independant audit on build in case it goes wrong. A full and detailed stability booklet(though rare with most builders) also helps. An ISO test certificate on the fuel tank is also to be expected as is some evidence of drop tests on the hull. I know that Delta, Humber/Quinquari and Halmatic do all this but worth checking on others as ultimately if coding fails then so does your VAT test.

I think you may have become confused on the 12 pax under the VAT zero rating for passenger charges on board. This is the marine voyages bit that also alows the duty claim but is nothing to do with import VAT and duty.

As an aside if you still need the use of a 6 wheel trailer then there are now a few here FOC for a few days if you require.

Cheers

John

Thanks for that John - it doesn't make it any easier that none of the officials I ever speak to know what they are on about! If THEY don't understand them how do they expect us mere mortals to know???

Should be soon - prob about the 20th.

Only taking my accountant for a joyride - couldn't afford to pay him for the trip - he costs me enough as it is!!!
