The market for the sale and acquisition of business aircraft has been suffering for several years from a lack of integrity, transparency and ethics.
One of the most flourishing and uncontrolled practices today is when a broker cashes an illicit commission via a hidden back-to-back (B2B) transaction, at the expense of the seller or buyer he represents.
This illicit practice exposes sellers and buyers of business aircraft to significant financial, contractual, fiscal, and customs risks – not to mention, risks related to the aircraft’s ownership. Without to be aware of these risks and able to control them.
Furthermore, while legitimate and transparent B2B transactions can be justified in some very specific cases, sellers and buyers in such transactions remain exposed to the same important risks. So, they have an obvious interest in understanding them in order to eliminate them.
