Statistical data on vessels and aircraft
Statistical data on vessels and aircraft are declared only when the economic ownership is transferred. This doesn’t require a physical crossing of the Finnish border. Vessels and aircraft arriving or dispatched for processing under contract as well as the returning of them after processing are also declared for statistics. Processing covers e.g. transformation, enhancement or renovation.
Economic ownership means the right to claim the benefits associated with the use of a vessel or aircraft in the course of an economic activity by virtue of accepting the associated risks.
Upon dispatch of vessels and aircraft, the country where the company to which the economic ownership is transferred is established, is declared as the country of destination. Upon arrival, the country where the company transferring the economic ownership is established, is declared as the country of consignment.
