Hong Kong:

Hong Kong is one of the world’s leading financial centres and has long prospered thanks to its links with mainland China, a strong rule of law in business matters, low personal and business tax rates and its open economy.

Since the UK transferred sovereignty to China in 1997, the territory’s autonomous nature has enabled it to ride on the crest of China’s economic development. Hong Kong continues to act as an intermediate jurisdiction for much of the personal investment capital flowing out of China.

We’ve been established in Hong Kong since 2008, offering tax and wealth planning, trust, family law, charity and corporate advice to clients.
