Events to come
We encountered some challenges with an American built boat. The owner asked us to carry out the importation in France using the French commercial exemption procedure. However, in the meantime, the European Union issued a regulation imposing a 25% customs duty applicable to American builds. The French customs wouldn’t accept the importation of the vessel unless the owning company paid the duties which amounted to more than one million euros.
