  • What is VAT?

    Value Added Tax(VAT) or goods and services tax (GST) is a tax that you pay when you buy goods and services. Where VAT is payable it's normally included in the price of the goods or service you buy. Depending on where the buyer resides, VAT can often be reclaimed or handled in other ways.
    Some European listings appear to have a higher price than their US or Asian counterparts, this can be due to VAT issues. Please contact the broker directly to see whether the VAT (sales tax) applies to you.

  • Are all listings excluding VAT?

    JamesEdition aims to create a transparent market for premium goods. As such, we aim to present all listings as excluding VAT (Sales Tax) so that prices are comparable. This is not always possible. In most European countries for example, dealers are obligated by law to include the VAT in the promoted price. Boats marketed in Europe can be marked as either VAT paid, VAT unpaid, or VAT exempt. Some European listings appear to have a higher price than their US or Asian counterparts, this can be due to VAT issues. Please contact the dealer directly to see whether the VAT (sales tax) applies to you.

  • What is P.O.R?

    It stands for Price on Request, which means you have to ask the dealer what the item costs.

  • How often does JamesEdition update the currency rates?

    We update currencies daily.

  • Why doesn’t the seller respond to my message?

    Some dealers have small operations and are very busy, give them two-three working days to get back to you. Let us know if they don’t and we’ll help out.

  • How do I contact the seller?

    You can send an email to the seller by filling out the form on the listing page. We also provide the phone number in the seller information so that you can call directly.
