International accounting services - saffery champness

Many people now have second homes or investments of some nature outside the UK. Whether you own personal assets or business structures overseas, we can recommend tax-efficient financial structures to suit your individual circumstances and objectives.

Many changes have been made to the tax treatment of UK residents owning overseas assets over the last few years and the analysis required to understand the rules for individuals and their assets can be complex.
