WHAT IS THE BRITISH REGISTER / SSR?

The Small Ships Register (SSR) provides a simple form of non-title registration for eligible UK residents who own pleasure vessels that are less than 24 metres in overall length.

F.A.Q

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Since 01/01/2021 (BREXIT) THE REGULATIONS APPLICABLE TO SHIPS WITH SSR REGISTRATION ARE NO LONGER THOSE OF EUROPEAN UNION MEMBER COUNTRIES BUT THOSE OF THIRD COUNTRIES.

  • NON-EU REGISTERED VESSELS MAY NOT STAY FOR MORE THAN 6 MONTHS IN THE SAME COUNTRY OR A MAXIMUM OF 14 MONTHS MOVING IN EU WATERS, AFTER WHICH TIME THE VESSEL MUST LEAVE EU WATERS OR BE REQUIRED TO PROVE THAT VAT HAS BEEN PAID, PAY IMPORT DUTIES AND BE REQUIRED TO REGISTER THE VESSEL IN THE EU.

  • CHANGING THE SSR REGISTRY TO AN EU REGISTRY IS THE ONLY SOLUTION.

  • IT DOES NOT MATTER IF THE DATE OF ENTRY IS BEFORE OR AFTER BREXIT, AS THE SSR REGISTRATION IS A THIRD COUNTRY REGISTRATION AND IS NOT A MEMBER OF THE EU THE REGULATIONS THAT APPLY ARE AS EXPLAINED ABOVE AND AFTER 6 MONTHS IN THE SAME EU COUNTRY THE AUTHORITIES OF THAT COUNTRY CAN RECLAIM THE IMPORT TAXES OF THE VESSEL AND ALSO FINE THE OWNER FOR NOT HAVING THE VESSEL CORRECTLY REGISTERED IN THE COUNTRY.

  • CHANGE THE SSR REGISTRATION OF THE SHIP TO THE POLISH REGISTRY. POLAND IS A MEMBER OF THE EUROPEAN UNION, THE POLISH SHIP REGISTER IS AUTHORISED ALL OVER THE WORLD.
