Cross-border Considerations for the Global Client


The worldwide advisory and compliance web is closing-in. Local advisors must be ready to comply and manage the twists and turns of foreign rules and the impact of non-compliance. The 2018 Cross-border Considerations for the Global Client workshop intends to ignite industry awareness, and although it has an international angle, it will have a definite South African perspective, given the current tax, wealth, succession and compliance landscape.

The multi-layered world of tax planning and global compliance has created a new professional playing field. The advisory sector is an ever-changing, digitalised and transparent area which triggers certain unique challenges for clients and advisors.

Course Content

The workshop will proactively deal with the following topics:

  • The potential consequences for lawyers, accountants, financial and tax advisors, banks and other service providers when one fails to follow the global anti-avoidance reporting regimes.
  • How can a South African tax resident manage their economic and political risk by holding offshore assets without falling foul of the situs rules?
  • Do trusts still have a role as a tax planning vehicle or are their days numbered?
  • What's next on the transparency agenda in the age of data sharing and the Common Reporting Standard?
  • The role of tax planning in citizenship and residency planning
  • The recent US tax reforms. Has the US become the destination of choice for offshore investors?
  • Global wealth and inter-generational estate planning in a highly regulated and complex world
  • High-level international tax principles from a South African perspective, such as substance over form, residency including place of effective management and Controlled Foreign Company (‘CFC’) rules
  • Transfer pricing, focusing on loans to offshore group entities, and practical and tax challenges
  • BEPS and its impact on international tax treaties with specific reference to permanent establishments
