The Problem

We were called upon to advise Mary on her UK residential portfolio, which is owned via a company and trust structure based in Jersey, set up many years ago.

New rules were introduced by HMRC on 6 April 2017, which mean UK property owned by non-residents is now within the scope of UK capital gains tax and UK inheritance tax.

Mary wanted to know how the new rules would impact the day-to-day running of her offshore structure. She was considering closing the structure and wanted to know what the tax impact of doing so would be.

The Solution

We produced a comprehensive report on how her offshore structure would operate following the introduction of the new rules. Our findings also considered the tax implications of closing the trust, and what that would mean for the trustees and beneficiaries.

Mary identified there was a need to consider her offshore structure on an ongoing basis because the tax changes in this area were vast and evolving. She also discovered it would be difficult to unwind the structure without incurring some form of tax.

As a result of our report, Mary has a clear understanding of the impact of any decision she might take, which means she’ll avoid making costly errors.
