A Taiwanese tax resident and domiciled individual sought tax advice on a £20m potential property purchase in the UK of a block of flats. The individual was looking to make a bulk purchase of residential properties in a prime central London location and wanted professional tax advice on the best approach to minimise tax leakage on the transaction and provide a sensible structure that allowed for further UK acquisitions in the future. Taking into consideration the special tax rules that apply to non-resident landlords, we advised on a number of tax saving steps.

Case Study

A Hong Kong resident and domiciled individual sought advice on their family’s potential emigration to the UK. Due to the complexity of the tax system in the UK, they were keen to understand how the move to the UK would impact both on their tax residency and domicile status in the short and long term and how they would need to plan to successfully structure their assets. Taking into account the client’s residency position, we advised on when they would become liable to UK tax and their arrival date needed to be considered carefully so that the client would be able to ensure that any pre-arrival planning would be deemed to be undertaken whilst still non-UK resident.
