Tax Law

Dear ANS Customer

for all boat owners who are your motor or sailing yacht in Croatia, or intend to buy a used yacht or in a timely manner, will benefit from a law that on the 30th, the Croatian Parliament Decided November. This means in plain language that all yachts, the 31 to May be retroactively taxed at 5% in 2013, from the accession of Croatia on 01 July are considered EU taxable. That’s from all previously known variants certainly advantageous and should be taken as soon as possible in the implementation undertaken. According to our information, the administrative procedure will take about two months to complete and when you consider that about 10000 yachts are affected in Croatia, it can take even longer. We strive for the moment, to assist you in implementing the recapture and come back shortly with proposals.

This letter attached you will find a letter from the Austrian Foreign Trade Center in Zagreb.

This letter indicates that this status applies only to vessels that are registered in Croatia. So not for New Boats, will be introduced only. This would have to be taxed at 25% for imports from Croatia. The EU guidelines state that vessels over 7.5 meters in the country must be taxed.

We must point out that all this information is communicated from our side without prejudice!

Ladies and gentlemen!

Thank you for your e-mail today. The Croatian Government has adopted on 30/11/2012 amending the Law on VAT. This has not yet been published in the Official Journal of Croatian. The amendment should enter into force by 01.01.2013. The bill can be found on the Web page of the Croatian Parliament. Click on: Prijedlog zakona izmjeni o i o dopuni Zakona porezu na dodanu vrijednost, s Konacnim prijedlogom Zakona (in red). This will open the bill. Consequently, boats from 01.01.2013 be introduced at a VAT rate of 5% for Croatia and subsequently registered by 31.05.2013. This seems to refer only to boats that already have the status of a temporary import in Croatia. We wrote to the Croatian customs office and to explain the concept (“import pass” in storage, how long the boat must be in place temporarily, boats can be temporarily imported to 31.12.2012, these provisions apply only to EU boats, etc .) asked. Once we receive a response from the customs office or the law is published, we will inform you. Until then we remain Sincerely yours
