As a result of Common Reporting Standard, several countries granted their taxpayers a final chance to become compliant. Those who accepted the invitation and crossed the bridge now realise that a new and more sophisticated tax planning era has begun, where their investments’ yield is directly associated with tax efficiency. The panel will address issues such as tax deferral, use of holding companies, trusts and foundations, as well as their implications for taxpayers, their successors and the structure itself. While this panel will focus on VDP participants, the discussion will also be relevant to advisors of already compliant, wealthy individuals.
