Thanks saviour, beneteau_500, MarkJ: much appreciated.
Not harsh at all. If you arrived in Australia with a VAT paid boat you would be immediately liable for 15% tax. The EU gives you 18 months to pay or leave.

Luxury !

Re: Australian registered yachts using British Berths Long term

Hi. it used to be that sailing off to the Channel Islands was considered outside the EU for VAT purposes and so it may be worth checking this option as it is five years since I last sailed there.

for VAT yes , for TIR No. By Treaty the Channels islands and the Isle of Man are inside the customs union. In that they are the same as the Canaries, inside but no VAT.

ps an american detailed here on CF how they fell foul of that issue in portugal and thought the trip to Jersey freed them of the 18 month restrictions, the Portuguese officer knew her rules better.
