Save time and avoid penalties with our UK-APD Management Program

Service Specific to Operations Departing the United Kingdom

Every time you depart the United Kingdom via a private or charter flight, you’re required to file and pay an Air Passenger Duty (APD) tax for each passenger. The tax is applicable to each departure leg outbound from the UK.

Forgetting to file and pay, filing incorrectly or incompletely with the HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) could result in tax penalties, fines and costly delays.

Our Global Regulatory Services team and local experts in London facilitate thousands of departures per year from the UK and have the expertise, bandwidth and global resources to reduce your risk and alleviate your administrative APD burden.

Our UK APD service will streamline your next mission to the UK with APD reporting and scheduled payment processing. Our experts will also actively monitor all regulatory changes and manage all manual UK APD email requests on your behalf.
