Ayuk Ntuiabane, partner at Moore Stephens Isle of Man, leading providers of multi-sector accountancy, consultancy and wealth management services will address over one hundred of the superyacht industry’s key professionals and owners at Marine Money’s Annual Superyacht Finance Forum in Monaco at the opening of the Monaco Yacht Show later this month.
Speaking at the Forum for the third time, Ayuk will present his professional views on optimising yacht ownership and operations in light of the recent VAT changes in the EU including Croatia’s EU Accession, the new VAT regime in France, the Spanish matriculation tax and a round-up of other important VAT trends.
“The EU in 2013 witnessed unprecedented changes in value added tax on yachts and yachting,” said Ayuk. “The Superyacht Finance Forum will again be a great opportunity to explore important lessons and discuss strategies to correctly reposition yacht operations in the Mediterranean.”
The Superyacht Finance Forum is in its sixth year and now seen as a “must attend” event on the superyacht industry calendar. This year’s assembly begins at 8.30am on Tuesday, 24 September at the Auditorium Rainier III and is followed by a networking cocktail reception.
“The Monaco Yacht Show is a key event for us as a firm and the Isle of Man, so again this year we have a large team attending,” said Clive Dixon, senior partner in Moore Stephens Isle of Man. “Monaco attracts a broad spectrum of people in the superyacht industry – Ayuk opening it all as a key speaker at Marine Money’s Superyacht Finance forum is a great way to launch this year’s event.”
