Structuring a Jet for Business Purposes

Depending upon the desired use of an aircraft and the way in which it will be operated determines which aspects of our services clients require. We were asked to assist a client with an appropriate structure who wished to purchase a jet for business purposes that required importing into the EU.



Structuring a Yacht for Commercial Purposes

The team at KHMA were recommended to the client by the client’s existing legal firm, who had previously dealt with the KHMA team. We were asked to assist the client with an appropriate structure for the purchase of a new 56 metre luxury motor yacht which would be used for commercial operations.


What our clients say

I have worked with Knox House Trust on a number of yachting related matters for my clients. I have found James Porter and his team to be both professional and amiable and they give clients a personal service with minimum fuss or red tape.  I would have no hesitation in recommending James and the team to my yacht owning clients.

Gillian Christian
Director (Isle of Man)


Knox House Trust provides a service that is second to none, particularly for those wishing to expand a portfolio of investments. From the initial advice given at the outset to the ongoing administration service provided by Becca, I feel totally confident in their ability to execute anything one needs. They have a very hands-on approach to completing tasks and always have an eye out to investigate further options to create greater efficiencies for their clients.

I find I need them more and more in my daily life as the more assets deployed, the more work there is to organise and report on – something I couldn’t manage by myself. I feel fortunate to have found them in the first place, and now attached I will not be letting go as they keep my financial and investment affairs in order and I have complete trust in them – to the point that it is my intention to make this relationship inter-generational!
