Waterman Trust Company


Tax considerations underlie all commercial arrangements. Whilst we do not offer tax advice, we have substantial experience in working with tax experts to generate tax planning strategies for clients.

Examples where we have added value include advising:

Non UK resident investors on their acquisition of UK commercial and residential property

An international steel manufacturing entrepreneur on the tax and legal structure of his management contracts, his asset protection trust and investment vehicles

An international textile industrialist on tax planning his global holding company so as to minimise tax on his divided income and capital gains

A Hollywood film producer on international tax planning for receipt of his royalty income

UK resident but not domiciled persons on formation of their offshore trusts

Private clients on tax planning before taking up residence in England
