Abacus to Attend Superyacht Fiscal 2016

Samantha (Sam) Snow will be representing Abacus Yachts at the Superyacht Fiscal 2016, an important conference on the yachting industry calendar, being held in Barcelona, Spain on 26 April.

Superyacht Fiscal is a highly focused one-day conference where delegates explore key topics and subjects that directly affect the management and operation of superyachts. Aimed at industry experts, the event will focus on a range of tax, law, insurance, safety, security, communications, regulations and flag issues and will offer a platform for networking, education and sharing ideas.

The 2016 programme will provide an intimate platform to discuss superyacht specific topics, particularly focusing on Spanish fiscal and charter regulatory issues. The one-day conference will host 100 industry professionals and will be an instructional seminar ahead of the summer chartering season.

Sam Snow has over 15 years of valuable experience, specialising particularly in VAT and indirect tax matters across a diverse range of sectors including the Remote Gaming, Financial Services, Yachting and Property and Construction industries.

Commenting on the upcoming conference, Sam said: “The event is a great networking platform with an assortment of attendees including business leaders, yacht owners, yacht brokers, charter agents, management companies, government officials and shipyards.

“Abacus has offices in two highly regarded and recognised jurisdictions within the industry so we can offer alternative services for yacht owners to choose from.

“Our yacht services are aimed at owners and their representatives, with a focus on ownership planning, tax and administration. We continually review and shape our services to meet the ever changing requirements and regulations of the industry to ensure that the ownership structures we establish and administer are both compliant with current regulations and meet our clients’ specific requirements.”
