We offer a wide range of services for clients with an international dimension to their affairs. These range from advice on legal and tax issues, through the establishment and management of offshore trusts and companies.
For UK expats around the world, we advise on UK tax issues and their continuing property interests in the UK, including putting in place Wills and powers of attorney. For people returning to the UK we review their circumstances to ensure gains on assets are not later subject to tax in the UK and advise on how their international interests will be treated on their return to the UK, and suggest alternative UK structures where appropriate.
The UK has attractive tax rules and for non-UK domiciliaries (those with an origin outside the UK) and we offer advice on domicile issues, the UK's statutory residence test and remittance basis planning for non-doms. We advise non-domiciliaries on the UK inheritance tax rules, and implement excluded property structures to retain assets outside the UK.
For international clients we also advise on residence and domicile issues, the correct structuring of Wills and trusts for worldwide estates, and we can arrange to set up and run suitable structures in a range of jurisdictions, to hold and administer property worldwide. We can advise on asset protection matters and succession to property on death across different jurisdictions. This includes advising on the most appropriate property holding structures and the interaction of property and succession laws of different jurisdictions..
