Do you feel that vessel accounts are taking too much of your time?
Are you worried that the spending reports you present to the Owner might not be accurate and look professional enough?
Are you so busy during charter that it is difficult to keep track of the APA spending to present to the charterer when needed?
Do you have trouble getting the invoices paid on time, perhaps because they are stuck in the pile on the Owner’s office desk?
Are you concerned that asking for help could make you lose control of the vessel and/or your exclusive relationship with the Owner?
Yacht Accounting Support's solution has been developed by drawing on the expertise of a strong team of experienced yacht captains and yacht managers.
We understand that assistance for yacht accounts is difficult to find as a dedicated service, and not as part of a wider package that often captains don’t need, or want.
With our support, the captain remains the manager of his yacht, but benefits from our professional assistance.
Angela heads up the operation. Her experience in yacht accounting spans more than 10 years. She has been working as the head of accounts in a yacht management company in the south of France for 3 years before starting her own business in 2018. Before this, she had the same role in a major yachting agency in Southern Italy, from where she comes.
"I have always been interested in the human aspect of this job, often overlooked: dealing with captains and helping them through one of the trickiest tasks which is accounting. I have found that sometimes they only need a little help from outside, often just because they don’t have enough time. But the only external help they can find is a big management company which they might not need. And here’s where the idea of my business came from."
After 5 years as a yacht chef/stew, Letizia progressed becoming a purser, and later stepped on land as a building administrator. Her language skills and genuine cheerful attitude are what you need to reassure you during the stressful season. When numbers get rough, her organising capabilities will be your life raft.
