Navigating the tax system

One of the biggest challenges for high net-worth individuals moving to a new country is understanding and complying with the local tax laws and regulations. This can include income taxes, capital gains taxes, wealth taxes, and estate taxes. In addition, they may need to manage tax liabilities in their home country, which can create a complex web of international tax considerations.
