Seafarers Accountancy Services
If you work at sea in any capacity – whether on a fishing boat, a yacht, a cruise ship or any other type of sea going vessel, you will face a different set of rules than most when it comes to paying your tax and national insurance.
It can be confusing and can easily cause you headaches you don’t want to have to deal with!
Some of the questions our current clients have come to us with were about the HMRC’s “Half Day Rule”, the “183 Day Rule”, Qualifying Periods, or the fact that you can only make a claim for Seafarers Earnings Deductions if you are “Employed” and you have a consultancy agreement that suggests otherwise. If you have questions about any of these topics or anything else related to your SED, we can help explain it all to you.
This is the process we go through with our SED clients to ensure they are looked after at every step of the way:
- Initial consult to explain everything
- Ensure you keep the correct evidence to support your claim
- Collate your calendars and dates to ensure you remain within the constraints of the SED requirements
- Complete the tax return itself
At CC Associates we pride ourselves on specialist knowledge of the SED sector which uniquely allows us to take care of our clients at every step of the way.

Ex Military Accountancy Services
Some of our services are best described with bullet points and sales copy, but this is a service that is close to our hearts – so the best way to describe it to you is with a case study:
“After 22 years military service I took up a management position within the Corporate Security Sector in the Middle East.
Within a few months it became apparent to me that my personal tax situation was going to be a problem – and would become more of a problem the longer I left it unaddressed.
I was given lots of unqualified and to some extent contradictory “advice” and it soon became apparent that 80% of the security management team were in the same situation!:
We were all unaware of correct procedures…
We didn’t know of the potential consequences…
We were all were hoping for the problem to somehow “go away” on its own…
That year I had the pleasure of receiving my first ever tax return (which I discarded) – this was inevitably followed, some months later, by a fine from the tax office…
Nicola, my partner, put me straight and because of her doing so I was rewarded with a substantial refund (and huge peace of mind).
It wasn’t long before more members of the team were making enquiries, which Nicola sorted out. And that is why we started the business…..”
