It is extremely important as an expat to ensure that you have your affairs in order in your country of residence, your home country and any country in which you hold property. Those living and working in the UAE need to ensure they are covered from a Wills, Guardianship and Tax perspective in both the UK and their current country of residence to be prepared for what might happen in the future.
In our recent webinar, Cynthia Trench, Principal Partner of Trench & Associates, and Peter Webb, our International Tax Manager, offered some information to help UAE expats better understand the key considerations to be aware of in both areas of the world.
The webinar provided a good introduction to a number of key areas to be aware of including:
- An overview of UAE and UK Wills
- Where to register your Will in the UAE
- Guardianship in the UAE
- UK Inheritance Tax planning considerations
The Fry Group Middle East and Trench & Associates began working together in early 2019 in order to offer UAE residents a well rounded and high-quality service from both a legal and financial planning perspective. Since then, many clients have been supported whilst living abroad and when moving back to the UK. Cynthia Trench is an expert in her field and has been assisting expats in the UAE for over 30 years.
