Wealth management (inheritance, business succession, asset management, etc.)

PwC Legal Japan’s legal and tax experts provide comprehensive, strategic, and global wealth management advice and support in relation to asset management, inheritance, business succession and more.

PwC Legal Japan provides targeted wealth management advice related to matters such as inheritance (including cross-border inheritance), business succession, asset management, and utilisation of trusts from multiple perspectives such as legal and tax.

In recent years, with revisions to and developments in legal and tax systems and the increase in the global mobility of people and property, the variety of options available to individuals and companies (especially entrepreneurs, founders, asset owners and their relatives) for the succession of property, asset management and transfer of business have expanded greatly.

PwC Legal Japan’s professionals leverage our extensive experience with legal and tax affairs to provide thorough, strategic and international services to enable our clients to make optimal choices according to their needs, and support the implementation of those choices in collaboration with PwC Tax Japan and other PwC member firms inside and outside Japan. Specifically, we provide professional advice and support related to the following matters.
