Changes in the regulation of the Tax on Certain Means of Transport (the well know matriculation or registration tax) allows Spain to become a charter destination to super and mega yachts.

nlymThe Matriculation Tax affect yachts to be registered in Spain and these performing commercial activities in Spanish waters and is 12% of the yacht value, payable at the moment of applying for registry or at the beginning of commercial activities. With the changes in the Law, charter yachts of any length, before beginning their activities in Spain, can claim for Matriculation Tax exemption. It is important to know that the exemption does not act automatically and is strictly necessary to apply and get it before starting any commercial activities.
