Hi Guys! (New Member)

Hi Guys,
I have been looking for some information and came across this site, it looks very interesting and useful, oh how the interweb has changed the world!

Introduction:
I am 61 years old British marine engineer. I live with the Mrs and daughter on a 45'7" aluminium sailing yacht. We are currently in Panama and about to revisit the San Blass.

If you think I might be able to help just 'contact me' (however you do that!!lol) and I'll be glad to help.

My Question....

I have a US built vessel I will be importing to the UK or some where in the EU. The engines will need replacing, (66hp Yanmar main and 10 hp Kabuta Donkey) to bring them into kite mark emissions boundaries. I will also be getting the stability curve done. This can all be done in Fort Lauderdale (Florida)

My question;
Is there any way of getting the VAT assessed and paid in the USA, preferably Florida? Any EC embassies have this type of department? Preferably the lower VAT countries!!

Kind regards to all, Ed.

Welcome Ed. Interesting question. I do not know the answer. Not many people want to pay VAT early, so you are unique. I have had clients pay US sales taxes in advance, so why not. How about contacting the one of the lower VAT countries? Enjoy San Blas. R

Enigmatic! I like that. Full name is Richard. I don't know if a foreign equivalent of me will be much good, but I'll send you a pm. My other thought was a doc agent such as this contact in Lauderdale ( ASAP Marine Documentation and Registration, Inc. ). Maybe the gang there has come across paying VAT in advance. Good luck and feel free to ask me to lock a dock for you when you get to Lauderdale. - The Enigmatic R
