Q&A

What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

Working with an ultra-high-net worth family and their offshore trustees regarding their relocation to the UK, one member's exit from the UK, associated tax planning, restructuring three complex offshore trust structures, and establishing two new offshore trust structures. The structures include numerous different asset-types over multiple jurisdictions and we had to take into account South African and Australian taxes, as well as complex remittance issues, loans, segregation of mixed funds, UK residential property interests, and international reporting on the structures under the CRS.
