Re: claiming your VAT back - is it possible ?
I started the other thread that Atoll refers to. I found that there are two problems: (1) the law clearly states that the items are not to be used in the country where you buy it (for an engine
this is difficult) and (2) a customs
agent needs to verify that it has left the country. This is hard to do in Italy
. I don't know about other countries. I would guess if you were in an area which services foreign yachts you could find out how to do it.
Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions. Heart of Darkness
