When Harold Wolf Fisher founded his eponymous firm in 1933, he worked tirelessly helping people flee persecution overseas to arrive in the UK. To this day, helping our clients with ‘international’ tax issues remains a cornerstone of our practice.
Our partner-led international Private Client team specialises in advising clients who have international aspects to their affairs. Within that remit, the scope of the work is wide and includes individuals coming to or leaving the UK, whether by reason of employment or lifestyle choice, as well as those who have business or investments overseas.
If you are coming to or leaving the UK we can help you manage you tax and financial affairs to ensure that you pay only the correct amount tax and can take full advantage of the various and generous reliefs potentially available.
Some individuals making regular visits to the UK may need advice regarding their residence status in order to avoid inadvertently becoming tax resident in the UK.
Many of our clients are not domiciled in the UK and are able to benefit from a favourable regime known as the ‘remittance basis of taxation’. We can help you fully understand the consequences of this status and how to manage your affairs to benefit from this treatment, avoiding unnecessary complications and the pitfalls that can trip the unwary.
We provide full support and advisory services to employers and employees. Whether the employer is seconding employees to the UK or the employee is a ‘local hire’ we can help you to manage the process, ensuring that the arrangements are tax efficient and fully compliant.
Although sometimes considered a niche of the ‘big 4’ firms we advise on all aspects of Internationally Mobile Employment programs. Along with our international alliance we are able to provide full support to employer expatriate programs including tax equalisation and protection arrangements.
We are a member of the Leading Edge Alliance, a global network of prestigious accountancy firms. With our extensive international network we can provide seamless advice globally.
For those looking to invest overseas or use offshore monies to invest in the UK we can advise you on the options available to you.
