On 3rd September, AIN Online reported that Martin Fiddler Aviation has urged business aircraft owners to ensure they have planned for possible VAT issues relating to aircraft operating into the EU.  It says that, unfortunately, a no-deal Brexit situation will impact aircraft owners, and the financial consequences of not resolving the aircraft’s free circulation status could result in aircraft being grounded while the situation is assessed; payment of VAT on the value of the aircraft (ranging from 17% to 27%) being required before an aircraft can travel further; or a penalty fine of up to 100% of VAT due if an aircraft enters the EU without an import declaration.
