Tax transparency

Tax transparency

As an expat, you may find that your tax situation has become more complex. Discover a few key things you should know about your tax obligations

Please remember that the value of investments, and any income received from them can fall as well as rise, is not guaranteed and you may not get back the amount you invested. This could also happen as a result of changes in currency exchange rates, particularly where overseas securities are held or where investments are converted from one currency to another. We always recommend that any Investments held should be viewed as a medium to long-term investment, at least five years.

The potential tax benefits that may be available will depend on your personal circumstances and may be subject to change in the future.

If you're unsure about your personal tax obligations, you should seek professional advice. It is your responsibility to disclose your income to any relevant tax authority.
