Crew Employment & Payroll

Crew Employment & Payroll

As an employer of yacht crew, do you really understand your respon­sibi­lities and liabilities? Do you have the time to deal with them? Bachmann Yachts do - it’s what we do.

Crew Employment

Bachmann Yachts provide robust and cost effective solutions to crew employment and crew payroll. Using the latest payroll software, crew may be paid daily, weekly, fortnightly or monthly and in any of the major currencies.

Social Security and Tax

With Bachmann Yachts residing outside of the EU, we are not under any statutory obligation to pay employer Social Security contributions.

Furthermore, using Employment Contracts specifically designed for Bachmann Yachts and the employment of yacht crew, salaries are paid gross, without deductions, allowing the crew member to be responsible for meeting their social security and income tax liabilities wherever they may be due.

Maritime Labour Convention

Bachmann Yachts maintains accreditation and audit under the Maritime Labour Convention, authorised to manage the employment and payroll of yachts under commercial use (charter). Using approved Seafarer Employment Agreements combined with our specialised payroll software, Bachmann Yachts has a leading market share of crew across the worlds’ charter fleet.

Who could benefit from our services?

  • Yacht owners currently paying EU social security contributions
  • Yacht owners operating charter yachts
  • Yacht owners/­captains/­Family offices wishing to remove liability and the administrative burden associated with crew employment and payroll.
