VAT Rate at 6.6%

According to Article 11(1) of the Law Decree No. 76/2013 from 28th June (published in the Official Gazette No. 150), the planned one percentage point increase in the main rate of VAT (value-added tax) from 21% to 22% has become effective on 1st October 2013 (more info here).
Despite of this all EU/non-EU fiscal represented subjects with commercially registered charter yachts won’t be much affected by the increase as the VAT rate is still at a very reasonable level (new rate 6.6% only, in any case lower than in France where VAT rate is at 9.8%) and this should encourage anybody to pick-up charters in Italy!
