UK & Cross Border Estates - Top Tips & Practical Guidance for Private Client Professionals
An area of UK law which is often overlooked for its complexity is cross-border estate administration.
With an ever-increasing number of UK individuals owning assets overseas and, likewise, non-UK individuals owning assets in the UK it is now more important than ever to understand the practicalities behind administering a cross-border estate from a UK tax, compliance, and legal perspective.
To complicate matters further, the UK legal regimes relating to domicile and tax residency are always evolving and these rules have a huge impact on the taxation of a UK estate.
If an individual lives in the UK but spends time overseas or if a non-UK person has spent a notable amount of time in the UK, it is always worth giving these rules a very careful consideration so that you can ensure that you understand the tax liabilities involved and avoid unnecessary interest and penalties being incurred.
This new webinar will examine the UK domicile regime and provide practical tips for a UK lawyer dealing with estates involving more than one jurisdiction.
