Inheritance and Tax
If you are based in the UK but have assets in multiple jurisdictions, more than one nationality, or a family originating from outside the UK, we can help to identify and construe the laws of involved countries to establish the succession and tax implications. We will:
- Liaise with overseas lawyers to identify and realise assets in different jurisdictions; and
- Analyse the UK tax position, including the impact of any estate taxes levied abroad.
Recent work has included advising trustees of a UK resident Trust with multi-jurisdictional beneficiaries regarding trust administration; construing an Austrian Will of a UK resident.; and advising a Spanish national on the UK tax implications of multi jurisdictional property disposals in the UK and Spain and working with Spanish lawyers to advise on the Spanish tax implications.
