UK property investment: advice for investors in Hong Kong

In an article for Hong Kong’s Next Magazine, BKL private client tax specialist Geraint Jones examined the key factors and UK tax implications for overseas property investors in Hong Kong who are looking to buy UK property.

Topics covered by Geraint included BVI companies (entities registered in the British Virgin Islands), annual tax on enveloped dwellings (ATED) and inheritance tax (IHT).

(For reference: the article was available to Next Magazine subscribers here. A translation into English is available here.)

Geraint has also recorded video interviews with Next Magazine about the UK tax implications of moving from Hong Kong to the UK, including the one below. Links to all the videos are available here.
