Support for you and your clients

Tax advice for your high net worth and entrepreneurial clients

Capital Gains Tax Advice

A key concern will be ensuring that any CGT reliefs are maximised. It might be appropriate to consider whether investment holding structures – both in the UK and overseas – are suitable for your clients.

Asset Protection

A key part of advising your HNWI clients will be ensuring that their personal balance sheet is protected from financial ‘predators’ in their lifetime – for example divorce and bankruptcy, and from the tax man on death.

Trusts

Trusts, including offshore trusts remain a legitimate asset protection and tax planning tool, in certain circumstances. We can help advise your clients through careful tax planning, knowledge of the new rules and experience of international tax.

Inheritance Tax Planning

One of the key objectives of Inheritance Tax planning is to legitimately limit IHT liability through for example a combination of family trusts, gifts and wills to suit your clients’ circumstances.
