If you qualify for a tax free wine order for your yacht charter, then please contact us and we will remove the tax from your account.

- Inside the EU if you meet the following requirements.
- Tax free goods destined for consumption during the period of a valid charter contract, are available to commercially registered yachts, employing a permanent crew, providing the yacht leaves the port within the 48 hours following delivery of the tax free goods.
What we need from you…
- A copy of the Ships’ Papers clearly stating the vessel is commercially registered.
- A copy of the Charter Contract
- A copy of the Crew List
- A signed and stamped copy of a commercial attestation
The Customs Agents fees for processing a tax free delivery are at least €199. Therefore tax-free delivery is only worthwhile when the tax on an order exceeds €199 – usually a minimum of €1,020 for a wine and spirits order or €3,620 for soft drinks.
Please note that due to Customs constraints we need at least 48 hours’ notice to carry out a tax free delivery. We will also need to be informed at the time of placing an order whether a tax-free delivery is required.
It is forbidden to consume goods bought under tax-free conditions alongside, and we cannot deliver tax free goods to static charters. It is also forbidden to disembark goods purchased under tax free conditions unless payment of the local taxes has been paid to the local authorities.
Tax on deliveries cannot be reclaimed retrospectively.
