The nautical sector employers organized a year ago a protest at the Palma Boat Show to request the removal of registration tax for commercial vessels over 15 meters in length. A year later they claim that nothing has changed.
The association of nautical companies of the Islands says that this tax remains in effect and has caused many companies not to do business with the islands.They prefer to go to other European Union countries like France or Italy, where they would not pay the fee. The government say they will meet soon in Madrid to demand the withdrawal of the tax.
