Seafarers Earnings Deduction

We assist individuals who work at sea to check if they are eligible for the Seafarers Earnings Deduction or how they can become eligible in future. This can result in substantial tax savings.

We understand that many professionals in the entertainment industry often work on international projects and spend a significant amount of time working aboard cruise ships. Theataccounts are here to help you take advantage of the Seafarers Earnings Deduction, a valuable tax relief specifically designed for individuals working in the maritime industry.

What is Seafarers Earnings Deduction?

The Seafarers Earnings Deduction is a unique tax benefit provided by the UK government to individuals who qualify as "seafarers." This relief scheme allows eligible individuals to claim a significant portion of their earnings as tax-free, providing a substantial reduction in their overall tax liability. The relief considers the unique nature of work performed at sea and aims to support individuals who spend a considerable amount of time away from the UK.

How can Theataccounts help?

Once your eligibility is explored and confirmed, our accountants will assist you in calculating the qualifying amount that can be claimed under the Seafarers Earnings Deduction. We will consider various factors, such as the number of qualifying days worked outside the UK, the duration of your contracts, and any other relevant considerations.  

As a dedicated accounting firm, we understand that managing tax affairs can be complex, particularly when working in the entertainment industry. Leave your financial affairs in good hands as we are committed to ensuring you optimise your financial position and take advantage of all the eligible schemes and reliefs.  

Our accounting services extend beyond your initial application, as we can assist you with record-keeping, documentation, and any updates or changes in tax regulations that may impact your eligibility.  

Together, Theataccounts can help to navigate the complexities of the tax system and maximise your tax savings as a seafarer or entertainer in the maritime industry.
