Italian government amends berthing tax (3 March 2012)

Foreign nationals have been excluded from paying the controversial new tax
Italian marine industry association UCINA today confirmed that the Italian government has exempted foreign owners of boats and pleasure ships from paying the country’s new berthing tax when passing through or mooring in Italian waters.
The tax will only apply to Italian owners of boats and pleasure ships, including those sailing under a foreign flag. Also exempted from payment of the tax are craft belonging to hire or lease companies, says UCINA.
“We are pleased that foreign pleasure boaters can now organise their holidays in our seas without having to pay any additional charges,” says UCINA president Anton Francesco Albertoni. (IBI Plus, 2 March 2012)
