Boat associations complain that the government instead of facilitating the recovery of the sector, it penalizes it

It blames the retroactive increase in the royalties of ports and the doubling of VAT on rentals

Italian organisations representing the companies of the boating industry have complained that recent measures government and government agencies hit hard nautical, and in particular its tourism segment, with all induced to it, and this just in the aftermath of the post lockdown restart,

Confindustria Nautica and Federturismo Confindustria, Assomarinas and Assonat-Confcommercio (ports and landings), Confarca (nautical schools agencies) and Assilea (leasing) have complained that the negative opinion General Accountancy on the amendment to the Revival Decree to close the judicial dispute that pits 23 of the leading the country's marinas to the state is the drop that makes overflowing the vessel. "These companies - underlined the six organizations -- over the course of 13 years have won every possible constitutional court, against the increase in the number of retroactively the royalties decided by the Prodi government in 2007, yet the Internal Revenue Service continues to demand non-money enforcement measures, blocking accounts and even the withdrawal of concessions."

"Lastly," recalled the six category - TAR Sardinia has again reiterated that these increases cannot be applied retroactively to reports then in (sentence No. 382 of 6 July 2020) and condemned the party public to pay the court costs.'

"With a political veto," they also explained Confindustria Nautica, Federturismo Confindustria, Assomarinas, Assonat-Confcommercio, Confarca and Assilea - was instead canceled another intervention in the decree-law relaunch that made clarity on the application of the so-called Marina resorts (ports or portions of them equipped with specific tourist equipment for boaters), intended for revive nautical tourism and the incoming of boats from abroad and which, on the other hand, remains difficult to interpret and application.'

"Even more serious," they complained, "is the impact of the Revenue Agency circular, which, to be since June 15, it sets out new rules for calculating VAT base on rental and rental of units from and which involves, in fact, a delta up to more than 11 percentage points of tax compared to other competing countries. This measure, adopted in accordance with the commission, follows the cancellation of 62% of contracts due to the Covid-19 and comes while France has suspended the introduction of the new rules - keeping a 10% rate, just to support charter companies -- Croatia applies tourist VAT - always at 10% - and Greece has identified a escamotage to escape it."

"Finally," they highlighted Confindustria Nautica, Federturismo Confindustria, Assomarinas, Assonat-Confcommercio, Confarca and Assilea - there is an escalation of the repetition controls at sea, incomprehensible to the already few customers, carried out on the grounds of checks health care, however, appears at least in contrast to the low risk of nautical activities detected by Inail.'
