06.11.2020 - First Big Cargo Vessel Back Under Estonian Flag
At the end of last week, the first cargo ship reflagged to Estonia after the country’s new special tax regime entered into force. The tanker named Ristna has flown the Estonian national flag before but opted for the Latvian flag in May 2019 due to the tough competition in the shipping market. The decision to reflag back was made in the light of the special tax regime that came into force on 1 July this year. The exchange of flag took place on 30 October.
