Valcora opens office in Johannesburg

Posted 2 May 2019 · Add Comment

Valcora, the Swiss based fuel purchasing service, opened a new office this week in Johannesburg, South Africa.

 

The two-person operation will be responsible for raising Valcora’s profile, as well as highlighting the benefits of the technically sophisticated, yet simple to use fuel purchasing system across the continent.

With Africa home to some of the world’s most rapidly expanding economies, the decision to open was informed by the growing need for reliable fuel purchasing options for local, intra- and intercontinental operators and owners. The existing strength of the South African business aviation fleet, the removal of operating restrictions in the skies over east Africa and the growth of the business aviation fleet in countries such as Angola, Ethiopia, and Kenya also supported the decision.

Of particular benefit to African operators flying to Europe is Valcora’s extensive experience handling the complexities of European taxes. The intelligent system automatically calculates fiscal obligations in Europe ensuring customer tax commitments are correctly and fairly determined to optimise operating budgets.

Daniel Coetzer, Valcora CEO said: “Of particular benefit to African operators flying to Europe is Valcora’s extensive experience handling the complexities of European taxes. The intelligent system automatically calculates fiscal obligations in Europe ensuring customer tax commitments are correctly and fairly determined to optimise operating budgets.” 

He added: “The growing business aviation sector needs access to easy, international, fuel purchasing options to support continued economic growth in Africa. Johannesburg provides the perfect spring board from which to support this need.  South Africa has an established business infrastructure, reliable banking institutions, and an excellent pool of people to hire from which will all support our own business growth, and enables us to better serve our clients.”
