VAT and Fuel Excise Tax Recovery for the Aviation Industry

CB VATAmerica's Aviation Division serves the owners and operators of over 2,000 aircraft as well as manufacturers and other aviation-related companies.

In 1997, CB VATAmerica established the world’s only VAT Recovery Program for the aviation industry. This industry-leading program serves corporate flight departments, passenger and cargo charter providers, companies managing fractionally-owned aircraft, government and military operators, aircraft management companies, and scheduled aircraft operating from bases throughout the world. We also serve aircraft and equipment manufacturers, air ambulance operators, and other aviation-related firms.
