Equiom’s Grant Atchison to speak at National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Tax Conference

Thursday 05 November 2015

Equiom is pleased to announce that Grant Atchison will speak on behalf of Equiom Aviation at the prestigious NBAA Tax, Regulatory & Risk Management Conference, which takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Centre on November 15th and 16th 2015.

The conference is set to attract approximately 300 leading aviation industry professionals, looking to gain a closer insight into effective tax and regulatory planning for aircraft operations.

Grant Atchison, Equiom’s Head of Aviation, has over two decades of industry knowledge and experience and is a recognised adviser to clients on matters relating to EU VAT and customs taxes. He has a wealth of expertise in the proper importation, exportation and on-going tax compliance of aircraft.

Grant will sit on a panel of aviation experts discussing international tax and customs issues, with his particular focus being on the temporary importation/exportation of aircraft into, and out of, the European Union (EU).

The Tax, Regulatory & Risk Conference precedes the annual NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, the fifth largest tradeshow in the United States, which takes place from 17th to 19th November and is set to attract 26,000 attendees.  Grant will attend the exhibition, along with Equiom colleagues, Andrew Wilson (VAT and Customers Manager) and Edward Leigh (Senior Manager – Aviation). They will each be available to meet clients and contacts to discuss Equiom’s wide range of Aviation services, including ownership structuring, aircraft importations, Customs warehousing and leasing solutions.

Commenting ahead of the conference, Grant said:

'The NBAA Business and Aviation Convention & Exhibition is a must-attend event in the Aviation industry calendar. It attracts leading industry professionals, who want to learn how to effectively plan their Aviation strategies. I am looking forward to speaking at the conference ahead of the NBAA exhibition and catching up with existing contacts and meeting new business associates. The discussion in which I am taking part is entitled ‘International Tax and Customs Issues – Around the World in 60 minutes.’ The panel comprises leading Aviation professionals and the topic should make for some very interesting exchanges.'
