The work-life balance

Finding the balance between creating wealth and enjoying it can be a challenge. We make sure that whatever your passion – from luxury yachts to vintage cars or an art collection – your assets are fully protected, giving you the peace of mind to fully enjoy them.

Yachts and aircraft

For internationally mobile people and families or businesses, personal yachts and aircraft certainly make life easier. However, these valuable mobile assets can carry heavy administrative issues. We take this burden away from you completely, with a team of specialists who work closely with trusted suppliers and contacts.

We provide:

When making a purchase or sale

  • Advice on appropriate structuring, taking into consideration the relevant taxes to be paid. In particular, the area of VAT can be a complex one for mobile assets that move across borders.
  • Support for temporary or permanent import and export.
  • Advice on tying the ownership structure in with your wider intentions regarding personal wealth structuring, liability and succession planning.
  • Registration of the asset in the most appropriate jurisdiction.
  • Appropriate structuring and tax planning to allow for the efficient charter and leasing of yachts and aircraft to third parties where applicable.

For ongoing enjoyment and use

  • Day to day administration of the asset and its ownership structure, including liaison with flag states, suppliers, banks, insurers and so on.
  • Ongoing accounting, VAT and tax compliance services including financial management and reporting as required.
  • Crew payroll solutions.
  • Managed trust company arrangements for brokers and yacht managers, allowing you to provide a more comprehensive service to clients.
