Free Ports for Art: Special Tax Zones as Cultural Policy Incentives?
Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceeding › Book chapter
A free port for art is a location in a country with purpose-built art facilities where imported works of art may be stored without taxes such as value added tax (VAT), goods and services tax (GST), consumption tax, transaction taxes and customs duties. As long as the art does not leave the free port, such taxes are not imposed, hence the word “free”. These free ports could be regarded as special tax zones (STZ). The central question in this paper is whether these free ports for art are cultural policy incentives or as threats.
