Notes on the Charter Fees and Terms:
Please refer to the “General Booking Information” document sent via e-mail. The above presentation contains certain information and electronic brochures that are provided by the yachts. This information is provided as a guideline and in good faith. Please speak directly with us on any questions you may have. Please note that all charter fees and availability are subject to change without notice until your booking is confirmed.

* VAT. France and all other EU countries charge VAT on the Charter Fee. Full, regular rate VAT is 20% of the Charter Fee for charters starting in France. Full VAT rates would apply if there is not a navigational passage in international waters during the charter. France currently (2019) allows a reduced rate VAT if the charter itinerary entails a cruising outside the 12 nautical mile territorial waters limit. French reduced rate VAT is currently calculated as a flat-rate of 10% of the Charter Fee. Regulations going into effect at some point in 2020 may eliminate the possibility of reduced rate VAT or may result in the taxable basis used for reduced rate VAT to be calculated on actual time or distance travelled outside of French EU territorial waters as opposed to a flat-rate. In estimating total charter cost projections it would be prudent to budget VAT at 20% on the Charter Fee for charters starting in France. The Charter Agreement may possibly be written to list VAT based on the flat-rate reduced VAT of 10% with a further 10% deposited as a Security Deposit to be applied toward VAT in the event that the tax authorities rule that additional VAT is due.
In any event, reduced rate VAT is granted at the discretion of the tax authorities and cannot be guaranteed.
