Foreign Earnings Deduction and Personal Company

I have had a rash of ex Servicemen considering employment on anti piracy duties on merchant ships.

It is likely that they will form a company to sub contract to the main contractor.

On the assumption that the 100% FED for Seafarers is availble, would it be the case that remuneration from their company could effectively be paid free of tax (Ignoring NIC implications)?

This seems to good to be true - am I missing something obvious?
