STEP Lunchtime Lecture No.13 UK Inheritance and Estate Tax Treaties – Charles Russell Speechlys

29th April 2019 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Lunchtime Lecture No. 13

Topic: UK Inheritance and Estate Tax Treaties

Speaker: Piers Master – Charles Russell Speechlys LLP

Presentation summary:

The UK has a relatively small network of estate tax treaties, which are not always well known to advisers. In this talk Piers will look at the key treaties, including the US, India and Pakistan, focussing particularly on their application to trusts and trustees.

Speaker Bio:

Piers advises on a full range of international and UK personal tax, trust, succession and estate planning matters. He acts for some of the firm’s largest private clients and heads the International Group of our Private Wealth Sector at Charles Russell Speechlys LLP.

Piers acts for high net worth individuals from across the world, including US nationals living in the UK or with financial interests in the UK. He is very well known for his work with Middle Eastern and Russian clients, where he acts for many ruling family members and billionaires – many of whose families have US links. In addition he acts for a significant number of UK based clients including entrepreneurs and owners of landed estates.

Piers has extensive experience of providing joined up tax and immigration advice for clients looking to come to the UK under the Tier 1 (Investor) route, and works closely with our dedicated immigration team in this area. Piers is a Visiting Professor at the University of Law and a regular speaker in the UK and internationally on matters of private client interest.
