Multi-Family Office Advisory: Use Cases
Departing your tax jurisdiction and restructuring and/or movement of non-bankable and/or liquid assets into a tax shelter can be subject to heavy tax obligations, such as departure tax and capital gains tax obligations. Setting up a tax shelter properly means being fully compliant to beginning and ending tax jurisdictions while systematically reducing their tax obligations through a structured tax planning strategy. Hence, a customized solution may help to provide for tax efficiencies, provide privacy, and create a compliant framework with financial accountability, all within a well-regulated and structured environment.
Note that these use cases are not limited to the following case studies, and are meant to help patriarchs understand what possible scenarios may exist.
