The company produced a pre-tax loss of €17,416, though the accounts show major transactions with related companies which have yet to file accounts. Among the related party transactions was a €1.9 million payment to Cabin Crew Europe Ltd, for the provision of “operational services”. The owners of Crewlink own 50 per cent of Cabin Crew Europe. Crewlink is based in the Southern Cross Business Park in Bray, Co Wicklow, and is owned by Frank Whelan and Judy Byrne by way of a company called Occam Management Ltd. A request for comment was declined.
Leading recruitment agency
The recruitment agencies hold open days around Europe and the cost of six-week training courses organised by them can be deducted from employees’ salaries during the first year of employment, according to the Ryanair website.
The Crewlink accounts attribute €52.25 million of its 2014 turnover to the Republic, and €2.8 million to Europe. During the year, it had four administrative staff, and an average of 2,571 staff under the category “other”. That was a drop from 2,652 recorded for 2013. Wages and salaries were €45.5 million in 2014, and pension costs were €83,706. The notes in the accounts in relation to tax show that the company paid German corporation tax of €53,393 in 2013, but nothing last year.
Consolidated accounts for Occam Mangement for 2013 show a pre-tax profit of €233,139. As well as Crewlink, the group also includes Gas Analysis Services Ltd.
