The Private Client team at Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP is already one of the largest in the North East of Scotland, with extensive experience in every aspect of personal and business tax. This comprehensive service has always included specialist advice to individuals working all over the world in Oil and Gas related positions. Trusted existing client recognition, together with enquiries from offices in Edinburgh and London, has meant they have seen a significant increase in demand for this cross border, international tax advice.

Individuals relocating either to an overseas country, or arriving in the UK from abroad, can in many cases lead to assets or pensions held in different jurisdictions, and managing the worldwide tax exposure on any of those assets can be particularly complex. The team regularly deal with compliance reporting, but more often in longer term tax planning, taking full advantage of Double Tax Treaties with other jurisdictions to provide realistic tax mitigation strategies. They have the added advantage of having access to a global network of trusted partners, which facilitates the successful holistic approach to individuals global tax affairs.

Many enquiries have been triggered by UK resident, non UK resident, or non domiciled individuals seeking reassurance connected to the enhanced information sharing arrangements between Governments, such as the Common Reporting Standard (CRS) which has created unprecedented global transparency, as well as the complex succession of changes to the tax laws governing the taxation of UK residential property. For those individuals who are relocating around the world, it has never been more important to obtain accurate and bespoke tax advice.

The International Private Client Team, led by Lynn Gracie, has been created specifically to meet this growing demand, which in turn provides a dedicated resource, readily able to react to individuals’ requirements, and well positioned to take advantage of the recovering Oil and Gas industry.
