Re: Do you think we have been cheated?

I purchased a yacht in Holland (I am British). The yacht was 42 years old. ( the one on the picture). This was a private sale, so, no broker.
With it came an official RECEIPT from Dutch Tax Authorities confirming VAT (BTW) was paid. It was signed and dated 40 years ago and stamped by the Dutch Tax Authorities. I think that is the only foolproof documentation ?? If the HIN is correct there will be a BTW receipt in existence with the authorities...............

The idea of and indemnification by broker of VAT paid should be standard !!
At the least it'll tell a buyer broker on the level!

@Bulawajo: When do you think VAT was introduced in the Netherlands? :-)

I suppose it is a reasonable assumption as VAT was introduced in the Netherlands on January 1, 1969.

Re: Do you think we have been cheated?

Thank you everyone for your advice ... You are right, I need to hire a lawyer to try to figure all this out.

Re: Do you think we have been cheated?

It might be worth your while to get in touch with with HISWA. The Dutch marine leisure industry regulators.
