 Seafarers Earning Deduction Claims

This is a Deduction  which could mean that you pay  NO TAX on your income received for work carried out whilst on board a vessel.


You must be employed to apply for this. Some Companies issue Freelance contracts, but this does not mean you are not eligible, so please feel free to contact us, and we will advise you with no charge or obligation.

Class 1 National Insurance contributions are mandatory, with fines being imposed by HMRC for non-payment. As a Seafarer, you may be liable to pay Class 1 contributions on part or all of your income. This depends upon various factors including the flag state of any vessel you have worked on, where the owner of the vessel resides, who you work for and where you are paid from. We are happy to advise you with regards to this, again with no obligation.
