More than one in ten Britons now own a property abroad. If you are thinking of joining them or already own a residence overseas then there are certain things you need to consider.

The International & Cross-Border team at Stone King is one of only a handful of teams nationwide that is dedicated to nothing but international succession, cross-border estate planning and overseas probate work, including:

  • Analysing your residence and domicile status, and their impact on succession and inheritance tax
  • Your exposure to UK capital taxes and the workings of any applicable double taxation convention
  • Planning for any UK inheritance tax liability
  • The legal interaction between the UK and the jurisdiction in which your property is located
