In January, 2014, we alerted our clients to new rules. These rules regard a VAT increase imposed on Croatia yacht charter rentals. The government increased the VAT rate from 10 % to 13%. This was to combat the country’s economic woes.
We, therefore, focused on saving money for clients. We encourag our clients to commence their charters in nearby Montenegro. They could then cruise into Croatian waters, tax-free.
In spite of this, good things sometimes come to an end…
Effective this month, new regulations take effect. These eliminate the loophole that allowed tax-free cruising in Croatia.
This February, the Croatian Ministry of Maritime Affairs made an announcement. The regulations that govern the Croatia yacht charter market were amended to, “…bring the regulations in line with other European Union Member States.” The main change was, therefore, the imposition of VAT on charters starting outside of Croatia.
As succinctly explained by 1-800 Yacht Charters company President, Jana Sheeder,
“As of May 1st, 2018, charters commencing outside Croatia that then cruise into Croatia, will now have to pay 13% VAT on the time spent in Croatian waters.”
The new regulations are not retroactive. Thus, any charters booked prior to the regulation change are exempt.
On a positive note, other regulation changes designed to encourage an increase in yacht charter Croatia activity will also go into effect. The government has lifted the restriction that banned non-European Union charter yachts under 40 meters from chartering in Croatia. As explained by Rory Jackson of SuperyachtNews, “These restrictions, which prohibited non-EU commercial vessels under 40m chartering in Croatia, had been implemented to bolster the domestic market. However, they proved to be more costly than beneficial.”
Non EU flagged yachts under 40 meters will need to secure a charter license to operate in Croatia. The license will be required even if the charter starts outside Croatia.

“In each of the past three summer seasons, we have seen an increase in interest in Dalmatian yacht charter adventures in Croatia,” says Sheeder. “We are advising our clients to budget not only for the increase in VAT, but also for the higher excise taxes on fuel that were approved in November. In short, the cost to enjoy both a Croatia bareboat rental or a fully crewed yacht vacation will cost about 5% more in the summer of 2014.”
