Regarding Administrative Law, apart from the paperwork and document management to be discussed below, we carry out all forms of administrative procedures and lodgement of claims or objections resulting from the latter procedures.
With regard to the taxation of ships and recreational boats, we take care of advising in relation to the Registration Tax or Special Tax on certain means of transport, the Tax on Capital Transfers and VAT.
Of special interest and care for our office are issues concerning the vessel itself. Given the uniqueness of our islands and the boom in navigation that our Autonomous Community has experienced for some time now, we devote preferential attention to all matters relating to sports, recreational and profit-oriented seafaring. We are devoted to the documentation process for registration and flagging of vessels; boat purchase contracts; property changes; engine changes; list changes; entry in the Registry of Personal Property and any and all aspects of procedure for vessels. We also process navigation permits for rental purposes throughout the Balearic archipelago. Our experience in the nautical sector allows us to advise you on all matters within and around the maritime industry.
