TPA and Inward processing are terms used to describe a customs control procedure that allows a vessel temporary permission to dock in the EU for repairs and maintenance, without being subject to paying 21% VAT. The exemption is limited to a small number of EU countries and only available in authorized shipyards.
As a rule, inward processing applies to works and equipment purchased for any yacht that has a non-EU flag and non-EU owning company or owner.
It is essential that all TPA invoicing and services comply fully with Spanish fiscal and customs requirements and are overseen by an approved administrator, who must also provide the necessary reports to fiscal authorities.
ptw Shipyard are fully authorised to offer Inward Processing and will liaise between yacht management teams and suppliers to ensure that the TPA is carried out smoothly and correctly.
