Supporting vouchers

The following information concerning the practice of disbursements accounts and supporting vouchers was received from the Georgian Maritime Administration on 4 March 2002:

Tonnage dues, canal dues, berth dues and towage have no separate invoices and are all directly included in the disbursements invoice. 

Mooring/unmooring is covered by a separate invoice in the port of Poti since 1 January 2002. At all ports mooring/ unmooring has no separate invoice and is directly included in the disbursements invoice. 

Customs dues although regulated by law are not covered by a separate invoice, but instead are automatically included in the disbursement invoice.

Light dues. The Navy Hydrographic Office issues a separate invoice to the agent which should be attached to the disbursements invoiced by the agent.

Pilotage. The pilotage company issues a separate invoice to the agent which should be attached to the disbursements invoiced by the agent.

Sanitary dues. In the port of Batumi the collection of wastes is carried out by a private company which presents its invoice to the agent which should be attached to the disbursement invoiced by the agent. At all other ports bilge and ballast waters are collected by the port or the terminal and the invoice is automatically included in disbursements account. 

Watchman charges. The watchman company issues a separate invoice to the agent which should be attached to the disbursements invoiced by the agent.

Fees paid to the Maritime Administration and the maritime hospital are both covered by  separate invoices which should be attached to the disbursement invoiced by the agent.

The Maritime Administration has also informed BIMCO the registration of agents in Georgia has begun and that they recommend owners to ask agents to present their " certificate of approval" (issued by Georgian Maritime Transport Administration) in order to be assured of being served by qualified  agents.
