Hawksford webinar to focus on India

Posted: 29/07/2020

Hetal Sanghvi_EdwinCoe_jul20Hawksford and London-based law firm Edwin Coe are to host a webinar next week looking at cross-border wealth structuring for global Indian families.

Hawksford Director Michael Powell, who also leads the firm's India desk, will co-host the event on 5 August with Edwin Coe Tax Partner Hetal Sanghvi (pictured).

The webinar will seek to provide answers to eight questions asked by global Indian high-net-worth families planning for succession, particularly in light of Covid-19:

• I have family members relocating to the UK – what are the key tax considerations that should be included/considered? How long can it take? 
• At what point do I or my family become UK tax-resident? 
• What is a trust and how can it help me with my family governance and succession plans?
• I want and like to maintain control – what are my options for achieving this? 
• What are the rights and duties of a settlor, trustee, beneficiaries and protector in a trust structure? 
• I am worried about the fiscal impact of Covid-19 in India and what this could mean for my accumulated wealth – how can cross-border wealth diversification help me?  
• How do I ensure a robust structure can be achieved?
• What are the practical challenges to overcome to successfully plan for India/UK succession?
