Specialist Maritime Accountants

From the security industry onboard moving vessels to cruise liner staff, if you are a UK resident and are employed to work outside of UK waters, you may be eligible to claim 100% tax exemption on foreign earnings.

If you are working in the Maritime Security Industry Whittaker & Co will be able to assist and advise you with your tax.

The tax regulations for the Maritime Industry are different to land-based contractors and Whittaker & Co started to manage accounts for Maritime Security Contractors back in 2011.

We have visited the main hubs, Muscat, Fujairah, Dubai and Sri Lanka to meet up with contractors and found again that many individuals were not notifying HMRC of their situation.

Working on moving vessels can have varying tax implications. Also, your employment status and the type of vessel you are working on can impact on how much tax you pay from your salary. We have Maritime Security Operatives (MSO’s), medics, engineers, yacht and even cruise liner employees all as maritime clients.

Our clients work all over the world in different time zones; therefore, we understand that good customer service is very important. We pride ourselves in responding to our clients efficiently and with clear and understandable responses.

Whittaker & Co can also attend Maritime Security training courses across the UK. Where we will be able to provide free tax briefs to make newcomers to the Maritime Security Industry aware of their tax responsibilities when their new career begins, please get in contact if you would like us to attend your course.

If you are a training provider and would be interested in Whittaker & Co providing a FREE tax brief on your course please email or call 01686 610662.
