Cyprus yacht vat taxation special scheme

 

 Cyprus yacht vat taxation special scheme for short–term chartering

A short-term charter agreement of a yacht is an agreement whereby the yacht owner / operator enters into an agreement for the use of a yacht that cannot exceed 90 days.

The short-term charter to be used for leisure purposes is taxable at the standard rate of 19%. According to Cyprus taxation laws the tax liability arises where the yacht is actually available for the customer.

Before calculating the Cyprus yacht vat tax liability of 19% it is important to calculate the use of yacht within EU territorial waters. Though is very difficult to physically trail the movement of a yacht, certain percentages are set by the tax department which they correspond to the length of the yacht and its power to sail.
