International Tax Planning for Private Clients


International Tax Planning for Private Clients


Our private client team specialise in international tax matters with a particular focus on the tax issues faced by non-domiciled (“non-dom”) , dual-resident and expatriate (“expat”) taxpayers.

The UK’s tax regime is complex; however internationally mobile and non-dom taxpayers can qualify for special tax reliefs which may reduce their UK tax exposure significantly.

It is important that you take specialist advice in order to ensure you take full advantage of these opportunities. In nearly all cases, it is better to consider any planning opportunities relevant to your circumstances in advance, in particular before moving to the UK.
