Equiom to discuss latest developments at Monaco Yacht Show

Monday 18 September 2017

Our yachting team will exhibit at the Monaco Yacht Show, providing updates on the group’s latest developments to clients and industry leaders.

Edward Leigh, Director – Yachting and Aviation, will lead the delegation at the major yachting sector show, which takes place at the principality’s iconic Port Hercules from 27 to 30 September. Almost 600 international companies are due to participate in the event, which last year attracted more than 33,000 attendees.

During the show, Equiom, which recently surpassed $4bn in yachting and aviation assets under administration, will detail its latest services, including a new structure for chartering a yacht in Spain, as well as discussing industry developments, such as new crewing regulations and the possible implications of Brexit on the sector.

Mr Leigh said:

‘The Monaco Yacht Show is one of the industry’s major events and it is important that, as a global leader in the sector, Equiom is present. Our dedicated yachting and aviation team, established more than a decade ago, comprises 30 professional experts worldwide offering a broad range of services to private individuals and corporate clients, and this event provides an opportunity to update the industry on our latest developments.

‘Yachting is a constantly evolving sector and with our global presence and expert knowledge, we are ideally placed to identify and respond to challenges and opportunities, providing the right solutions for our clients. For example, at Monaco we will be detailing a new service created in response to the issue of matriculation tax when chartering a yacht in Spain.

‘We will also be discussing how new social security legislation for French seafarers could impact on the industry when it comes into force, and offering clients guidance to navigate the changes. Of course, the ongoing Brexit process will be a major topic of conversation and Equiom will be offering its current analysis of the possible effects on the yachting sector, both in Europe and globally.’

He added:

‘I look forward to meeting with existing clients as well as sharing Equiom’s expertise with new contacts.’

Equiom will be at Booth QS99 in Darse Sud. To arrange a meeting at Monaco or for advice on matters relating to yachting, contact Edward Leigh, Director - Yachting and Aviation, Steve Cain, Director - VAT or Ayuk Ntuiabane, Director - VAT.
