Can I retain the EU free circulation import when buying a pre-loved aircraft?

Possibly. This will depend on a number of considerations:

  • Who is the seller party;
  • Where will the aircraft be physically located at the time of purchase;
  • What was the VAT treatment at the time of the EU import

There will be other questions to consider however with careful planning and by taking the correct advice it might be possible to retain the EU free circulation status. Martyn Fiddler Aviation can advise on this and any other questions you may have.
