GASL Leasing UK No.1 Limited – UK Tax Strategy

Introduction & Background

GASL Leasing UK No.1 Limited (the “Company”) is a UK incorporated and tax resident company. It is subject to corporate tax in the UK on its worldwide income. The Company is indirectly held by Genesis Aircraft Services Limited, an Irish incorporated and tax resident company.

This document sets out the Company’s UK tax strategy. The Company regards this publication as complying with its obligations under Paragraph 22 (2) of Schedule 19, Finance Act 2016 (UK). This document applies to all taxes payable by the Company, including but not limited to corporate tax. PAYE, VAT, withholding taxes as well as stamp duty and stamp duty land tax.

This document will be reviewed annually.

The document sets out the Company’s tax strategy in relation to four main areas:

  1. Risk management and governance in relation to UK tax:
    Governance: The Company’s tax governance is ultimately overseen by the board of the Company. In this regard the board will be supported by the CFO, with input from third party tax advisors.Risk Management: Effective risk management is paramount for the Company and underpins its business strategy. The Company’s appetite for risk is a carefully calibrated part of the business model aligned to the strategic and corporate objectives. The Company’s on-going tax risk approach is based on principles of reasonable care and materiality.Transactional Risk: Due to the cross border nature of the Company’s business, risks are inevitable. The Company actively monitors the tax risks faced as part of wider risk management and is aware of these risks and their impact on an ongoing basis. For example the Company seeks to avoid double taxation of the same income and controls are put in place to manage tax risks, including engaging external advisors where appropriate.Compliance & Reporting Risk: The Company seeks to pay tax, and file relevant returns, on time. The Company also seeks to submit all tax reporting by the relevant due date.Reputational Risk: The board of the Company is aware of potential adverse publicity associated with a negative attitude towards tax and seeks in all commercial decisions to manage this reputational risk.
  1. Tax planning:
    The Company will proactively seek to structure transactions in a way that benefits from any available tax reliefs, taking advice from external advisors.The Company does not support or engage in aggressive or artificial tax planning, the sole purpose of which is to avoid UK tax or which contravenes relevant legislation. All tax decisions and planning are consistent with the Company’s strategy to maximise after tax returns to shareholders in an ethical and sustainable way.
  1. Level of risk in relation to UK tax that the Company is prepared to accept:
    The Company seeks to comply with all relevant tax laws, creating sustainable shareholder value. The acceptable level of risk will be dependent on the specific facts and circumstances. These are considered on a case by case basis.The Company seeks to apply tax laws in the manner in which they were intended. Appropriate advice is obtained from external advisors to enable the Company to be compliant with tax laws. 
  1. Working with HMRC:
    The Company appreciates the importance of a professional and open relationship with HMRC. The Company thus seeks to work in partnership with HMRC, maintaining a transparency with regard to its tax affairs. The Company seeks to:
  • Be responsive, open & transparent in its communications with HMRC,
  • Share complete and accurate information with HMRC where requested,
  • Disclose material updates to the Company’s business where appropriate, and Act with integrity and professionalism in the Company’s dealings with HMRC at all times.
