Fiscal representation for yachts



5 key points to take into consideration while Chartering in Spain.

  • EU flagged yachts can charter in Spain while non-EU flagged yachts can only charter in the Balearic Islands and, if Red Ensign Registries, also in Barcelona.

  • You must have a local charter license - Barcelona isn't the same as Balearics, for example.

  • 21% VAT on fuel is mandatory when bunkering in Spain.

  • Commercial yachts under temporary admission (T.A) can since October, 2018 charter in Spain if all requirements of the T.A. are respected.

  • Beware of the POSIDONIA areas, as they're now protected and you should anchor where it’s permitted!
