As of 1 January 2010 a new Tonnage Tax System (TTS) was
introduced, which covers the three main “Maritime
Transport” Activities offered in international shipping today,

namely ship-owning, ship-management (split into crew
and/or technical management) and chartering. It also applies

to fleets comprising of either EU flag or “mixed fleets” (EU

& Non-EU Flag ships)

Under the new TTS, no tax is imposed on:
Profits from shipping operations
Dividends paid directly or indirectly out of such
profits or from the sale of a ship
Interest earned on funds used as working capital or
for the financing, operation or maintenance of the
