Specializing in taxation, our expertise lies in providing comprehensive tax advisory services specifically tailored to yacht-related matters. Our exclusive focus on yachting enables us to excel in navigating European, particularly Spanish, tax regulations applicable to yachts. Our team adeptly handles a spectrum of taxes, including VAT, matriculation tax, transfer tax, excise duties, and corporate tax.

Tax Advisory and Planning

Tax considerations permeate every aspect of yacht procurement and operation. To preempt unforeseen financial setbacks linked to taxation, seeking tax advice is imperative. Effective tax planning is ideally formulated in advance, although we recognize instances where transactions may have transpired without proper consideration. In such cases, we stand ready to identify and mitigate tax risks to meet your specific needs.

Feel free to engage in discussions regarding your intended transactions, providing relevant draft agreements for a more nuanced understanding. This approach facilitates our assessment of your situation, allowing us to pinpoint pertinent tax implications and propose strategies to mitigate associated risks.

Tailored Ownership Structures

Our yachting specialists craft bespoke ownership structures that not only optimize tax efficiency but also enhance operational effectiveness. If your cruising plans include EU territories, especially Spain, evaluating the VAT and matriculation tax status is crucial. We offer ownership structures and leasing services designed to reduce the effective VAT rate, providing you with strategic advantages.

Assistance with Tax Investigations

Our Tax Investigation Team is dedicated to securing the best possible outcomes for you. We guide you through the process, negotiate with tax authorities, and represent you at tax tribunals. By managing interactions with tax authorities on your behalf, we ensure a streamlined resolution, minimizing both hassle and cost. Whether you are facing an investigation or need to proactively disclose a tax issue to Spanish authorities, we assist in securing the most favorable terms.

VAT Recovery Services for EU & Non-EU Companies

For businesses outside the EU, VAT recovery hinges on the reciprocity test. We can assess if the country of claim agrees to refund VAT to businesses in your jurisdiction, provided there is equivalent reciprocity. If your home country operates a VAT system and grants refunds to foreign businesses, we can guide you in making a claim, ensuring compliance and potential reimbursement.
