Any French vessel larger than 2.5m that navigates on sea waters must be licenced.
Foreign yachts whose length is greater than 7m or whose engine power is equal to or greater than 22 CV (administrative power) and motorized nautical vehicles (for example jet ski sea-scooters, etc.) with engine power equal to or greater than 90 kW have to be licenced by maritime affairs and registered in France by customs.
A boat or motorized nautical vehicle should belong, for at least half, to a citizen of one of the member states of the European Union or to companies or to associations located in the EU in order to be licenced in France.
Since July 15, 2013, companies owning yachts and offering charters departing from France and Monaco need to be registered with the VAT and pay VAT declarations.
It is therefore in their best interest to assign a VAT tax representative to fulfill their obligations easily and maintain complete compliance.
