Vimana Private Jets Announces an Alternative Service to Tax Free Shipping

Vimana Private Jets, one of the world’s leading executive aviation companies and experts in ultra-high-net-worth travel, is now offering clients a freight forwarding service that will enable them to have the Tax returned when flying with their goods to outside the European Economic Area (EEA). 

In this scenario the client may, for example, buy a luxury item in Bond Street or Knightsbridge, paying the full 20 percent VAT at the point of sale and instantly bring the purchase with them, eliminating the need to wait. Once the client and their goods arrive at the private jet terminal, the item and its documentation (invoice and payment receipt) are verified and approved, and the goods are loaded onto the private aircraft. On arrival of the goods outside the EEA – in the USA or Dubai, for instance – the client will then be eligible to have the tax that was paid reimbursed via partner SkyBlue Exports. 

“This process is incredibly smooth, enabling Vimana clients to have complete peace of mind and control when exporting their UK purchases. Vimana Private Jets acts as a concierge for its clients’ bespoke requirements in this area and many others.” 

Ameerh Naran, CEO, Vimana Private Jets 

The UK is a major destination for luxury shopping and collectors, drawing elite spenders from afar. Whether for fine wine, art or cars, it is renowned for its heritage and craftsmanship, from an Asprey Imperial Jadeite jewellery piece or a limited edition Gusbourne wine, to a beautiful Stephen Webster pendant. London is home to illustrious international brands such as French crystal house, Lalique and grand piano makers, Steinway & Sons. For those goods requiring a large-bodied jet for export, this is effortlessly arranged and, as with all other purchases, the TAX will be reimbursed once the goods arrive beyond the EEA. 

Julien Le Doaré, General Manager, Hedonism Wines who use the service commented: 

“The export service compliments Tax Free Shipping and enables us to provide our customers who fly privately with a choice of ‘how’ to export their goods.”
