More than two years after the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, the BP oil spill recovery fund is in place and the claims process has begun.
Many business owners in the affected area are under the mistaken impression that only a narrow ranges of entities – commercial fishermen, seafood processors, restaurants, and hospitality businesses – qualify for compensation from the BP claims fund. While those industries sustained considerable losses and have received the lion’s share of publicity, the Deepwater Horizon settlement is open to ANY type of business that suffered economic or property loss from the oil spill and the resulting damage to the Gulf Coast.
The settlement is complex, making it difficult and time consuming for business owners to determine whether they qualify for possible compensation for their losses, and the process of filing a claim can also be confusing. That’s why many turn to Buller CPA Services for expert guidance and assistance.
We help clients in a wide range of industries determine whether they qualify for compensation from the BP claims program, gather the supporting documents required to back up their claim, complete and submit their claim forms, and conduct any follow-up activities that might be necessary. Our expertise gives businesses the best possible chance of having their claims accepted and compensated fairly.
