International tax advice lawyers
The UK is a popular place to do business, work, live and raise a family. It continues to attract people from around the world.
If you want to come to the UK and are also looking to invest it is easy to see how matters can become complicated when you were born in one country, worked somewhere else where you met your partner and your grandparents may have left you assets through a trust in your country of birth.
There are lots of things to consider:
- How will you be taxed in the UK on your income and assets?
- will the rules take into account how you are taxed in other countries?
- how can you ensure that your move is tax efficient?
- how to efficiently structure the purchase of your home, business and other assets in the UK?
- how do you protect your wealth (in the UK and elsewhere) for your family in your lifetime and when you die in the UK?
