Our international clients are used to dealing with complex planning around their lives and businesses.
This extends across commercial interests and investments, dealing with emotional concerns for safety, security and wellbeing as they move and live, work and invest, and put down roots in different countries.
They often face daily risks of capital losses and capital demands but the current environment presents a new wave of challenges, from citizenship issues, to decisions around physical location and what constitutes a safe residence in the time of a global crisis. This is not only challenging for the family, but also for family offices who advise them, and those responsible for supporting family decisions.
For many families, the current crisis has forced them to think about incapacity and to put in place plans for the future, which instil behaviours in the family to protect their security, privacy, and investment decisions. Whilst families are connected through technology and shared knowledge, systems failures and corruption has led families to consider a simple written document to steer families through future critical conditions.
We are here to help families prioritise the steps they wish to take, and to deal with the complex concepts of citizenship, residence, and domicile, and help understand the position in relation to these rules and the UK tax system.
