Why Denmark for importation?
Aircraft owners outside the EU who fly into and within the EU have experienced problems with issues such as cabotage, because they have not obtained the proper VAT documentation. Most companies based in EU member states have to register for VAT, pay the VAT and reclaim it thus financing the amount for 3-6-12 months or more. Our procedures effectively eliminate the need to pay VAT and duty. As no up-front VAT payment is required there is no need to wait for money to be refunded. We have a longstanding relationship with Customs Authorities which normally ensures overnight processing.

Contact us first regarding your situation – we will advise you on the most appropriate solution.

Background
EU’s 112th VAT directive recasting the 6th VAT directive is a complex set of rules involving all the different EU member states’ national legislation and the single market approach is beneficial to most operators if the rules are applied correctly. Beware – if the importation of an aircraft is handled incorrectly, the aircraft may be impounded.
