Port Tarraco, the main port of entry nearest to Barcelona, has announced it has been certified as an Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) by the tax authorities. The marina says the accreditation will bring “great advantages” to clients moving forward.
The AEO is an internationally recognised symbol of quality confirming that a company’s role in the international supply chain is secure, and that its customs controls and procedures comply with European Union regulations. It isn’t a mandatory certification, but it does allow quicker access to certain simplified customs procedures and, in some cases, the right to ‘fast track’ shipments through some customs and safety procedures.
In a statement, Port Tarraco commented, “The recognition certifies our management reputation and allows us to continue being in the services vanguard, including leading the projects development in the Temporary Regime of Improvement Assets in our Marina under preferential conditions.”
The marina’s new customs status enables yachts to develop specific improvement and repair projects with an advantageous tax position if particular requirements are met.
