Equiom Solutions to host UK tax planning seminar with CBRE in Hong Kong

Tuesday 16 August 2016

Equiom Solutions Limited, will hold a seminar in Hong Kong on UK tax and estate planning issues for international residents.

The seminar, entitled ‘UK property and tax update for international residents’ will be directed at individuals, companies and trusts with an interest in UK property and will take place on Wednesday 28 September from 8.15am to 10am.

The seminar will be opened by Jeremy Fearnley, Managing Director, Equiom Hong Kong.

The agenda will begin with an update on the UK property market by Jack Palmer, Senior Manager, International Properties, CBRE. Jack will review the impact of Brexit on investment in London. The seminar will continue with updates from two key members of the Equiom Solutions team; Managing Director Helen Woods and Tax Director Kevin Renshaw. They will provide an overview of estate planning considerations for international residents with UK connections, addressing the issues of residence and domicile and changes to inheritance tax planning. They will also evaluate the tax considerations for residents with an interest in UK property, present and future.

Helen commented:

‘The first budget following the election of the Conservative Government in May last year introduced some important tax measures that could have a significant impact on individuals who have connections to the UK. The proposals have caused much concern and confusion in recent months. The purpose of the briefings is to educate Hong Kong residents, their advisers and intermediaries on what exactly the changes mean to them and where they should seek further advice before the changes come into effect.’
