Sounds like there going for "back taxes"...? Given the economic situation over there not too hard to imagine...??

Yeah, remember that when you use your local infrastructure, trash pick up, etc... on the way to your boat. And use those red and green things that keep you from running into stuff on the water, and pays those people who bail your rear end out when things go south... yep. Taxes suck. Assuming also that taxes paid for your ability to read this of course.

Re: Danger - greek taxes

Nac, in some US states it is 180 days, or 183 days, before you are declared to be a resident and subject to taxes. the time limits vary by state. In some states the time period is "contiguous days" while in others it is "more than xx days in one year" and some define that as one calender year while others define it as 365 consecutive days.

Don't want to pay taxes anywhere? Be a vagabond. If you're not willing to become a part of the community and support it, the community will be just as happy to see you move on. And that applies pretty much worldwide, everywhere.

Re: Danger - greek taxes

I don't have time to research this but it sounds like the EU VAT which has been around for a very long time and is charged on any boat that has not paid the EU VAT. The VAT is waived on EU boats which have paid the VAT, but it sounds like this guy is from Au.

Re: Danger - greek taxes

Bit of guess work here but you'd have to think the boat has been in Greece an awfully long time and while they got away with it for a few years they've now been lumbered. At EUR15 per metre on a circa 14m boat thats EUR200 every three months or EUR800 per annum. That means this particular boat has been there for over eleven years though I guess penalties may apply which would reduce this.

Methinks someone might just have pushed their luck a tadge too far and it simply ran out.

Re: Danger - greek taxes

Here is the relevant EU tax policy with regard to non-EU citizen boats in EU waters. Follow the requirements or pay. I don't know if member countries can impose additional fees but, looks like the original poster did not do their homework before entering EU waters.

Some Frequently Asked Questions about the rules for private boats - European commission

Re: Danger - greek taxes

Can anybody tell me what the taxes are actually for?

For the privilege of entering Greek waters?
Or for spending money in the local shop and supermarkets?
For eating in local restaurants?

What are these taxes actually for?

A little overstated.

Rates I have easy access to - May 2012 EU unemployment was 10.3%. By comparison, US rates for April 2012 (nearest month easily available) was 8.3%. The difference is the EU rates are getting worse while US rates are more or less stable or even recovering slightly.

I think you are thinking of certain EU countries which may be 25%.
