Moore Stephens Isle of Man, leading providers of multi-sector accountancy, consultancy and wealth management services is pleased to announce the promotion of Grant Atchison to head of aviation.
“Our aim is to continue expanding into the aviation market and building on our expertise – Grant is a perfect choice to lead this initiative” said Clive Dixon, senior partner in Moore Stephens Isle of Man.
As part of his new role, Grant will attend key aviation conferences and events to further develop business opportunities with key stakeholders; recently he attended the International Corporate Jet Finance Conference. He joined Moore Stephens in 2007 as VAT manager; in January 2012 he was invited to join the Board of Directors in Moore Stephens Trust Company Limited (“MSTC”). Previously a VAT and Customs officer for almost 15 years, he is well placed to provide guidance to clients on VAT and import/export matters.
“I’m very pleased; this is a great opportunity to lead a fantastic team – I’m really looking forward to what the future holds for me as head of aviation,” said Grant, “Moore Stephens already has a real presence in the industry; it’s my job now to take it to the next level. We will continue to work closely on relevant projects with the Isle of Man Aircraft Registry who have done a fantastic job to date; it’s an exciting time to be involved in its continued expansion.”
For the best part of a decade, Moore Stephens Aviation has provided specialist aviation services including: EU VAT and Customs advice, corporate structuring, importation (both temporary and permanent), insurance brokerage and registration. An example of the efficiency with which the services can be executed, an aircraft importation carried out last month by Moore Stephens Aviation (ably supported by the experienced and long standing local airport agents, Island Aviation and Travel) resulted in the aircraft leaving the Island with relevant importation paperwork within just 50 minutes of arrival.
