Aircraft Import & Export

Oceanskies is able to assist owners with the import and export of their aircraft into and out of the European Union (EU) and/or United Kingdom (UK).

Aircraft Import & Export

Oceanskies is able to assist owners with the import and export of their aircraft into and out of the European Union (EU) and/or United Kingdom (UK) handling formalities either directly or in conjunction with local customs agents.

Import

Our aircraft importation services include the full importation of aircraft into the EU or UK  into free circulation either as qualifying aircraft operating for charter under an Air Operator Certificate or through the payment of VAT for private aircraft or the deferment of VAT for corporate aircraft used predominantly for business purposes.

We are also able to provide assistance with the admittance of aircraft under a customs relief known as Temporary Admission. Temporary Admission is a mechanism designed in its simplest terms to provide aircraft owners who are established outside the fiscal territory of a fiscal jurisdiction with the option to visit and operate within that territory on a temporary basis under certian conditions without a full importation having to be made.

We can also assist with the importation of aircraft into the EU under Inward Processing Relief (IPR) in cases where an aircraft will visit the EU for maintenance purposes.

Export

We are based in the Channel Island of Guernsey which is located outside of the fiscal territory of the EU and the VAT territory of the UK. Guernsey also has no sales taxes such as VAT or GST.

Guernsey is therefore well positioned form both a geographical and fiscal position to provide an ideal stop over point for aircraft departing the EU or UK  and also provide an ideal closing location for the purchase and sale of aircraft.

Oceanskies Aero is able to provide a fully comprehensive aircraft concierge, handling and customs agency services in such situations – please see our online guide for more details:
