Wellington - if you are French and have a French passport I'd say you be called a EU Citizen if they want to tax you
not so, the passport is not a factor. its whether you meet the citeria to be viewed as no longer a tax resident of france. In particular you have to show that another coyntry has accepted you as a tax resident ( you cant be stateless). and a lot of time has to have passed. etc, etc

Anyone know, If you buy a 'tax paid' boat in the EU or US can you claim any back if you 'export' it again. By export I mean up anchor and sail off to the other side of the world.
If you buy a boat in the EU firstly (a) Second hand and you are not VAT regiestered, that there is no entitlement to VAT reclaim.

New Boat() it depends, there is a VAT reclaim, infact you get three months to export it out of the EU and you dont pay VAT in the first place, EU resident or not. teh UK has a formalised scheme, other countries have not and its difficult to get approval most otehr EU coutries will ask you to deposit the VAT as a bond and will return on provding them with proof that theboat has been imported to a country outside the Eu ( not just exported from the EU).

If you buy it and dont so qualify, irrespective of your tax status you will have to pay VAT and its very difficult to reclaim.

I know all of this , importing and expoting goods to all over teh EU and the world for 28 years

If as a non-EU tax resident,

France could possibly have such a strange rule but most other countries don't It is both easy and possible to be a tax resident of nowhere as long as you don't stay long enough, usually 183 days or more, in one country to be considered tax resident in that country. This makes no difference for Americans since they will have to pay taxes in the US anyway.
