I live in Australia
but will be departing for in excess of 12 months.
I hold an Australian passport and a UK passport.
I just bought a boat in Greece
and one day will get it back to Australia
....maybe late 2014.
I'd like to buy an extra 12 months when back to Australia before having to import
or leave forever.
Registering as a UK vessel creates possible VAT problems (boat is currently VAT unpaid and can stay so given I bought it as an Australian).
Do I have any other registration
options that might help me avoid immediate import
duties, and GST when I eventually hit Australia?
Any ideas, or thoughts I might follow up on?
