Asset ownership solutions tailored to manage risk, tax and privacy issues for yacht and aircraft owners

Abacus assists owners and their representatives in understanding the diverse requirements associated with luxury asset ownership, whilst providing a tax efficient structure to facilitate effective operation and management.

When purchasing a high value asset such as a yacht or an aircraft it is essential to consider whether there may be wider financial or other liability implications. The answer varies greatly, depending on the intended use of the asset.

Key considerations include but are not limited to:

  • What entity type should I use – Company? Partnership? Foundation? Trust?
  • Will the use of a corporate entity offer more privacy?
  • Will my vessel/aircraft be used on a pleasure only basis or will it be used for corporate or commercial purposes, to provide financial return?
  • Do I need to obtain tax and VAT planning advice?
  • Can I reduce my VAT cost on purchase and/or operation?
  • Will cruising within the EU be a VAT issue?
