My name is Chris Weeks living in Jersey Channel Islands and have been sailing for 20 years.
I have a question regarding a proposed trip to the Caribbean
Coming from Jersey the boat is VAT exempt but I have heard tales of this status causing an issue with some authorities. Would the forum be kind enough to advise me what documentation
would be required to be on board to prevent any hassle from officialdom. We could visit any of the Virgin Islands
so there could be interest from US, French, Dutch and UK authorities.
The plan is to head
out to the Canary Islands I August and leave for the Caribbean
in December so maybe the Spanish authorities also need consideration.
The boat will be returning to Jersey after a few months.
Thanks in anticipation.
