Cost Comparisons and Tax Considerations

Sunset

Planners will want to discuss deductibility issues with their own professional counsel, but there are many factors to consider when planning a conference cruise.

  • The guaranteed, fixed cost of a cruise.
  • The ease of administration - One call does it all.
  • The level of service.
  • Meeting rooms, audiovisual equipment and coffee breaks are included in the cruise price.
  • And the most important - the bottom line. When the cost of operating your meeting / conference / incentive is lower on a cruise - even with a tax deduction - what becomes more important - the tax deduction or the bottom line? The bottom line, of course!
