Being a Part of the Abacos Recovery

Hurricane DorianEven with more images and videos appearing daily of the fate of the Abacos from Hurricane Dorian's wrath, it remains hard to fathom the statistics. The New York Times published some compelling before and after images of popular Bahamas destinations. According to the Red Cross, ~13,000 homes roughly ~45% of the homes on Grand Bahama and in the Abacos are severely damaged or virtually razed. 60,000 Bahamanians need clean water and food. And they will need it for a long time.

While airports are opening up and harbors are starting to clear with fueling options surfacing, it is still a challenge to provide the relief needed, especially if you are an individual. Not only is it more effort to get goods you purchased to where they need to be, but also larger organizations can make donated money to further by purchasing in bulk and only purchasing what will be used. And, over time, needs will change. Right now, recovery work and getting the much-needed basics for survival are the focus. Later, it will be resources to rebuild. So by donating money rather than your time and personal effort during this chaotic period, you will be doubly helping.

TAX STATEGIES FOR YOUR BOAT BUSINESS

What are the Financial, Tax and Business Benefits of Boat Ownership in a Business Program?

Boat as a business programsOne of the more popular charter programs is known as the Performance Program. Most savvy yacht buyers understand that there is a completely legitimate way to significantly reduce the costs of yacht ownership by making use of existing tax laws to generate tax advantages. If you are an American tax-payer, you may be eligible for significant tax benefits through our active yacht ownership program. 

What Is "BOAT AS A BUSINESS"?

By placing a yacht into a corporation and running it as a small business one can generate income through chartering to cover the expenses and allow you to take advantage of tax programs and depreciation to significantly offset the cost of ownership.
