Background Information

Shipping, Yachting and Aviation are three thriving sectors of the Maltese economy which give rise to numerous transactions carried out by Maltese and foreign entities involved in these local sectors. Such transactions are likely to trigger Maltese VAT implications in some shape or form including registration, compliance, chargeability, filing and other implications. Hence it is of utmost importance that one is aware of any Maltese VAT implications arising from such transactions in order to take the appropriate actions in a timely and correct manner. Failure to do so might prove to be costly resulting in potential incorrect pricing, under/over declaration of output/input VAT, late registrations/invoicing/filing and other implications.

Objectives of the Session

The objective of the session is to identify the main provisions in the Maltese VAT Act Cap.406 of the Laws of Malta and the EU VAT Directive 2006/112/EC applicable to these sectors and discuss the correct manner in which such provisions are to interpreted from a Maltese VAT perspective. In order to do so, apart from the respective legislations, reference will also be made to relevant CJEU Cases, VAT Department Guidelines, Council Implementing Regulations and other relevant literature.

Topics on the Agenda

  • Background Information (inc. Transaction types: Domestic/ICAs/ICSs/Exports/Imports)
  • Taxable Person (inc. VAT Registration requirements)
  • Goods or Services (inc. reference to Yacht Leasing issues)
  • Place of supply (inc. reference to use and enjoyment provisions)
  • VAT Exemptions (inc. Qualifying Vessels/Aircraft
  • VAT Chargeability (inc. Reverse Charge Mechanism)

Target audience

This course is ideal both to experienced personnel (directors, accountants, lawyers, financial professionals, accounting students, financial staff) who have been working in the sectors for a number of months/years (who may need to brush up their technical knowledge or fill in certain gaps and clarify certain issues relating to certain transactions) as well as newcomers in the respective sectors (who have an opportunity to get a very good theoretical and practical understanding of the main applicable VAT concepts) .
