International private clients update 2018-2019

More than ever entrepreneurs and high net worth individuals find themselves doing business on a global scale and making investments abroad. If you are an entrepreneur, high net worth individual or a related service provider, you face a complex framework of tax and legal rules both at home and abroad.

Today’s entrepreneurs and high net worth individuals have an international footprint.
