The availability of dual qualified advisors lets us assist families with transatlantic tax issues by providing a holistic service.

What EY can do for you

Navigating the complex rules applying to US citizens residing outside the US is becoming increasingly demanding. The position can often seem tortuous, where individuals have to consider the complications arising from the interaction with UK taxes.

Our US and UK dual qualified tax advisors handle the complexities of the respective tax systems to provide a holistic and comprehensive service.

Whether you are an expatriate high net-worth individual in the UK looking for support with tax-efficient strategies for wealth preservation, a senior executive with queries about your pay arrangements or an owner-manager looking for advice and support across your personal and business finances, our tax professionals will work with you to offer an integrated approach.

Our tax advisors will examine the whole picture from personal circumstances to any relevant business relationships, in order to properly identify any potential challenges and ultimately, provide you with a bespoke, personalised and efficient solution.
