Abacus to attend the inaugural Iberian Peninsula Business Aviation Conference

Abacus will be attending the inaugural Iberian Peninsula Business Aviation Conference in Madrid, Spain, on 30 November 2017.

The conference, hosted by Quaynote Communications, will focus on regulatory, financial, fiscal and legal issues affecting business aviation across the Iberian Peninsula, while contrasting its future with that of Europe, the U.S. and the rest of the world. With an emphasis on discussion and debate, this one-day international conference will also shine a spotlight on investment opportunities in Spain, Portugal and Andorra from the business-private aviation perspective, providing invaluable insights for existing operators, OEM’s, financiers, brokers, regulators and governments in the region alike.

Representing Abacus at the event, Samantha Snow – Client Services Director at Abacus Malta, holds valuable experience in private aircraft transactions and their holding structures and has a keen interest in the aviation industry as a whole.

Commenting on the upcoming event, Samantha said: “When purchasing a high value asset such as an aircraft it is essential to consider whether there may be wider financial or other liability implications, which varies greatly depending on the intended use of the asset. Whether for corporate, pleasure or commercial use, placing your asset in a carefully structured ownership entity can manage risk, tax and privacy issues.”

“A member of the EU and with an extensive double tax treaty network, Malta is a growing viable option for aircraft owners. A versatile jurisdiction, the Island offers aircraft registration to both the private and commercial aircraft markets and permits for fractional ownership, registration of aircraft whilst under construction and engine registration; all of which give aircraft owners the flexibility in how they utilise their aircraft.”

“I am looking forward to attending the conference and meeting with other likeminded professionals in the industry with whom I can discuss the current state of the industry and promote the significant advantages of Malta as an international aviation jurisdiction.”
