Tax benefits for the executive when considering executive protection


Often time when selling our services to prospective clients we talk about the value of our service compared to the next guy. We get into the return on investment for hiring good quality executive protection. We might discuss options; security driving, close protection, residential security, corporate security, overt or covert, all the goods of executive protection. We probably forget one important benefit that has to do with budget. It is the fringe benefit of tax returns. No matter how we look at it budget is important especially to those executives running a large corporation. For this information look at Internal Revenue Service Tax Code 26 CFR 1.132-5.


If an employer provided their executive transportation for "bona-fide" business-oriented security concerns or if the executive purchased the transportation themselves to provide him or her additional security a deduction may be in order. If by chance a vehicle is provided and due to some security concern the vehicle is modified with security features then again a deduction may be in order.
