During the Barcelona Boat Show a conference titled “The new legislative and fiscal scenario for the nautical charter sector” took place. It was organized jointly by ANEN and the boat show itself, and was a success in participation. The new normative gives an opportunity for growth by insisting on the necessity to streamline the legislative process and to unify criteria.
The exemption of the matriculation tax for the nautical charter, currently in a legislative process to come into force probably at the end of October 2013, has generated high expectations in all the subsectors that make up the recreational nautical sector.
It is an opportunity for growth for a sector that still needs improvement, specially when it comes to speeding up the administrative processes as well as to unifying criteria for the correct application of the future normative between the different autonomic administrations.
In the meeting two large thematic areas were addressed, each at their own round table where recognized experts in maritime law, representatives of yacht clubs and marinas and directors of service companies related to the charter industry participated.
