Who We Are

Our Story

In 1984, we started as a typical corporate service provider assisting clients with their tax structuring and ownership needs. However, early on, there was a demand for supporting business aircraft owners and operators across Europe. Aircraft which are used as part of a business may have the right to reclaim or otherwise reduce their liability to tax and customs. Supporting aircraft owners and operators to understand how to navigate these rules was our first foray into aviation taxes. And very quickly, we shifted our focus to specializing in VAT, customs and ownership for business aircraft.

For two decades now, we have been doing exactly that.

Our Mission

To provide business support services to industries that deliver economic benefits to people, businesses and communities

Our Vision

Be the leading provider of tax, ownership and customs services to the aviation community

Our Services

Trusted to deliver value

Unrivalled capabilities

We are specialists in aviation tax, import/export, and corporate ownership.

Located in Ireland, Isle of Man, United Kingdom and the Netherlands, we have over 40 years’ experience assisting clients with their business aircraft.

Our unrivalled in-house capabilities allow us to access relevant information and knowledge speedily, enabling us to identify solutions and provide comprehensive advice where no one else can.

More than just a service provider

Our team are involved in nearly every aspect of aircraft import, ownership, export, customs, maintenance processing, tax advice and aircraft associated duties.

We have an unrivaled wealth of experience to assist our clients, their family offices and advisors.

Experience and dedication

We believe each of our clients is unique.

We deliver a personalised service for every client with a named relationship manager.

We ensure each of our team members is kept up-to-date with the latest aviation developments and is provided with regular training from our in-house tax team: this allows early identification and mitigation of any potential issues.

Industry leader & influencer

Our leadership team not only present at and write for the most prestigious aircraft associations worldwide, they also are valued influencers.

We sit on the NBAA tax committee and the boards of the BBGA, IBGAA and EBAA legal committee.

We are active participants at government level advising on business aviation tax matters in the UK and European Commission.

Privately owned

We do not have external shareholders and therefore can focus on building long term relationships with clients and industry colleagues.

We believe in creating a working environment that our team wants to be a part of, resulting in low staff turnover and high client value.

“For many years, the people at Martyn Fiddler Aviation have been a prime address for us to go to when our aviation clients need support for matters such as EU import / export and VAT compliance of their operations. Responsiveness, solid knowhow, attention to details and the outstanding service oriented mindset of the people at Martyn Fiddler Aviation were often key to bring a transaction over the finishing line and to meet or exceed client’s expectations.”

Gianni Rizzello, Senior Partner, Klein Rechtsanwalte AG

“I have been working closely with Martyn Fiddler Aviation for 23 years and have found the services delivered to be of the highest standard. The level of knowledge on VAT and Customs regulations concerning the importation of aircraft for free circulation within the EU is beyond compare. The access to the expertise at Martyn Fiddler Aviation initially through Martyn Fiddler and latterly through Angie Deady-Fiddler has been one of the key tools in the development of my aviation practice.”

Tobi Matthews, Director, Lateral 4T Limited

“With almost no notice or briefing, the Martyn Fiddler team joined a conference call with our clients and managed to create a viable, cost-effective solution on the spot, all because they had the knowledge and experience at their fingertips.”

Jonathan Russell, Partner, Jaffa & Co

“We recently utilised the services of Martyn Fiddler to assist with the customs export of a Gulfstream G150 we were ferrying from Germany via Belfast to the US. Our stop for the process in Belfast couldn’t have gone any smoother, everything was lined up for us well in advance of arrival and therefore enabled us to clear customs and depart with the shortest time on the ground – military precision is how I’d describe the organisation.”
