Malta offers a Tax-Efficient Platform for yacht owners
If you are a Non-EU National (including British) and you wish to purchase a yacht Ex-VAT, we have the solution. If you are eligible for this status, you can buy a Bavaria or Nautitech for private use in EU Waters with no VAT payable under the Temporary Admission rules. This implies that the yacht is registered under a non-EU Flag and you can use the yacht in EU waters for 18 months. After that period you need to sail your yacht out of EU waters, obtain a stamp from non-EU port authority and then return for a further 18 months under Temporary Admission/Temporary Importation status.
If on the other hand, you are an EU National you may wish to buy the boat in your name and pay 18% Maltese VAT upon the purchase of the yacht, or you may wish to avail of the benefits offered by the Operating Lease Structure. This structure requires that the yacht is purchased by a Maltese Company, the yacht is leased to you over the lifetime of the yacht, that, for the purpose of the law may be a maximum of 15 years. Maltese VAT at 18% is payable on the monthly lease payments. The Yacht will only be VAT paid once the full 18% VAT is paid. However, a yacht owner might decide to sell his Yacht say during the first three years. In this case, you would sell the yacht at a depreciated value plus 18% VAT or else if the purchaser is eligible to purchase the yacht ex-Tax, you would sell ex-tax without incurring further VAT payments. The Operating Lease Structure results in an annual VAT payment of less than 1%, however, if you use the Yacht outside EU Waters, the % of such usage would be reduced from the % VAT paid per annum.
EU Charter Company
If you are a charter company and are looking to purchase a Yacht ex-Tax and have a company that is registered outside Malta, we can sell to you by applying the VAT Triangulation Rules and Ex-Tax.
The Maltese Tax Efficient Platform coupled with our advantageous offers and our team's valuable advice on the yacht that can meet your requirements is a winning formula for you and Bavaria Yachts Malta.
