Seminar participants will learn how they can take advantage of Offshore Trust and Tax Planning. The session will cover the following areas: Mitigating estate duty and donations tax; Investing in stable currencies offshore; Taking advantage of your annual allowance (transfer up to R10m offshore each year); Actively managing investments; Tax efficient and structured benefit payments; Tax free returns on capital invested.
The seminar will also address the topic of 'Citizenship/Second Passports by Investments: Options for South Africans'.
According to Carby, "Offshore Trust and Tax Planning is fundamental to designing a robust tax efficient position in stable currencies and markets. Asset protection is also a key consideration. It's important to mitigate estate duty where possible as the allowance is currently only R3.5m thereafter chargeable at 20% on your worldwide assets. The days of donating interest free to trusts are coming to an end. I am licensed to provide advice in four countries so I'm well versed to provide quality advice to clients."
