Common Platform for the Handling of Ship Spares/Supplies
National legislation (POL 1026/2016) provides the option of suspending Value Added Tax during the placement of goods in a Free Zone for the purpose of being exported or delivered in another Member State of the EU.
In particular, domestic goods delivered to a Free Zone under the terms and conditions provided for in the relevant provisions of European Union and national law are exempted from Value Added Tax.
The above legislative framework, combined with the modern infrastructure of PCDC, favors, among other things, the ship spares/supplies industry, for which a common platform for handling and servicing these cargoes is offered to anyone interested.
