Tax Mitigation

Tax avoidance and evasion are not to be messed with, tax authorities have power and will use it against you if they have reason to believe that you are trying to skip your obligations. This means that your Family Headquarter Structure, or wealth ownership vehicle needs to reviewed to make sure it is properly set up, tax compliant and managed effectively and efficiently, to ensure tax authorities do not look through it and tax it as if it were a nominee arrangement. 

Every effort should be made to ensure that all wealthy families pay their fair share of tax, but this does not eliminate the use of trusts, when used for smooth succession, asset protection and preservation of wealth for future generations.
