Our tax team offers unrivalled expertise to private and corporate clients alike, helping them to make the most of the Gibraltar regime – Gibraltar is free of capital gains tax, inheritance tax, wealth tax and VAT.
In fact, as the largest and most prominent firm in Gibraltar, with a close working relationship with the Gibraltar government, Hassans played a lead role in modernising Gibraltar’s tax laws, thereby helping to ensure a wide range of tax planning opportunities.
As well as international tax planning, we advise clients on the structuring of their investment portfolios, which invariably include property and assets situated in other jurisdictions. We ensure that we fully understand the relevant laws of those jurisdictions, and use structures that mitigate tax exposure as far as possible.
Gibraltar is free of capital gains tax, inheritance tax, wealth tax and VAT. Whilst no planning can ever totally eradicate the payment of tax, Gibraltar’s tax system has been modernised in recent years to provide a wide range of corporate and individual tax planning opportunities.
Property Tax Advice
Our clients’ investments often include properties and assets situated in other jurisdictions. Our teams have wide-ranging international expertise in dealing with such investments. Although we typically use Gibraltar companies as asset holding companies, or as funding vehicles because of the advantageous tax treatments that Gibraltar affords, we are always alert to the possibilities offered by other jurisdictions.
