Aviation and logistics
Aviation is more than just the airlines!
We specialise in accounting for the aviation industry and this does not limit us to commercial airlines. We have worked with many aircraft management companies who manage privately owned aircraft on behalf of the owner, ensuring that the plane is airworthy and ICAO/CAA compliant. We make sure the owner receives regular updates of the aircraft running costs and any cost issues that have occurred. We also ensure they are aware of the fund balance and any upcoming maintenance and upkeep costs that they need to be aware of. We also help the companies in their search for the best value for money on ongoing costs and fees. They do this by looking after more than one aircraft and using bulk purchase discounts and we support them in this important task.
Pilots and Crew
Commercial pilots often work for a few different private airlines or charter companies, making use of their certification on specific aircraft types.
Flight crews, such as engineers, stewards and logistics staff also have a particular set of skills which are in demand both here in the UK as well as elsewhere in the world.
Whether you have a registered business for your flying and allied work, or have a mix of employed and self employed Income, we can help you navigate the double taxation issues of foreign and UK income along with making sure you claim all of the professional allowances and deductions that are due to you as a modern aviator or flight crew.
We are very happy to work with ground and flight crews to make sure your invoicing and accounts are always up to date.
Transport and logistics
We have many years’ experience working with businesses who deal with transport and logistics. These include freight road transport companies who often specialise in one area, such as portaloo and portacabin transport for events and construction sites. Their main issues will be checking delivery times and monitoring movements using the latest technology in tacho graphs and tracking. They must also ensure the drivers work within legally enforced driving and resting times. Freight transport companies also have to be certified for all areas of delivery, such as hydraulic lifting equipment and cranes. We can work with them to make sure they are 100% compliant within the appropriate regulations.
Cement delivery companies also use expensive heavy machinery and they often have to move their supplies quickly as well as keeping on top of customer invoicing or work with COD. These days each cab will be equipped with a card reading machine to take payment at the premises. However, we still have to be careful of missed or fraudulent payments, and make sure that the income matches the recorded sales.
We have dealt with many UK based import and export businesses, who deal solely with the import and delivery of specific items from overseas, both to the UK and to Europe. The location and value of stock at any given time is often key to the businesses’ successes, as they can easily over or under sell the stock before arrival at the destination. We can advise and manage systems to make sure the location and value of stock is as accurate as it can be, an invaluable support to the business.
