An Introduction to UK Estate Planning for US Citizens - How to Avoid the Tax Pitfalls
The UK and the USA are two countries separated by a common language. They are also separated by completely different tax systems.
For practitioners who advise on estate planning you may encounter a US citizen living in the UK at some point in your career. This includes individuals who may not even realise that they are unwittingly in the purview of the US tax system and these 'unintentional' or 'accidental' Americans may be sleepwalking into significant legal and tax problem.
Situations where the two regimes clash include a UK individual who owns property in America, UK resident trusts for US citizens and US resident trusts for UK resident individuals. Marriage to a US citizen, owning property in the United States, being a dual UK-US passport holder, or a US citizen resident in the UK are all scenarios that can create unexpected tax liabilities.
This new virtual classroom seminar will help practitioners identify the common areas of concern in US/UK estate and tax planning.
It will use case studies to identify the common pitfalls and the appropriate solutions.
