Owning and operating an aircraft or helicopter is complex and requires significant attention to a number of considerations. With a comprehensive understanding and experience of the aviation industry, our dedicated aviation division can assist owners and their representatives in understanding the diverse requirements associated with the ownership, registration and management of a range of aircraft, including business jets and helicopters. We understand the responsibilities and complexities that come with owning these types of assets and make it a priority to stay abreast of any changes or new developments in industry legislation and regulations to ensure that any aircraft is managed effectively whilst remaining compliant.
Whether the intention is to use the asset on a corporate, commercial or pleasure basis, we consider how and where the aircraft is to be used and ascertain whether there are any tax or VAT exposures, to evaluate whether tailored tax planning could offer any fiscal benefits and/or reduce any liabilities.
We can provide bespoke corporate structures for effective ownership and work with owners and their family offices, advisors and aircraft managers alike, to ensure that the necessary administrative and operational support is provided to each client and their structure so that they remain free to fly and rest assured that there asset is in safe hands.
