At BDO, we have extensive experience as leading business advisers to the transport sector. Our sector specialists operate throughout the UK and globally, providing specific advice to privately-owned and listed businesses.


Today’s fast-moving global environment creates many business challenges. BDO provides high quality, integrated advice and support to help international companies in the aviation sector reach their strategic destinations.

More than 30% of commercial aircraft are owned by leasing companies. Aircraft leasing businesses face many challenges including raising finance in the optimal form, creating an appropriate business structure, delivering tax-efficient outcomes and implementing a risk management strategy while also controlling costs.
