Are Foundations the new Offshore Trusts?
The Foundations (Jersey) Law 2009 means that foundations can now be established in an English speaking jurisdiction, close to the United Kingdom, of high probity, efficiency and reputation for its financial services.
The United Kingdom tax code has never targeted foundations. While its provisions can by accident apply to foundations, the well-advised can slip through the interstices in the anti-avoidance net.
The author predicts that the foundation has now come of age and will be increasingly used in strategic United Kingdom tax planning, as its many advantages are perceived.
This seminal work will be mandatory reading for all United Kingdom tax advisers who wish to remain abreast of, and even ahead of, current developments.
The taxation of foundations requires a knowledge of the taxation of companies, individuals and settlements. The author, with his wide-ranging experience of thirty years as a tax barrister, almost twenty of them as Queen's Counsel, is peculiarly well qualified to have written this work.
