Good tax planning is integral to sound wealth management.

PwC can relieve you of this worry, saving you time and ensuring tax compliance.
Philanthropic giving is most effective when it is tax efficient. It is important to understand when and if a tax deduction is allowed and the benefit realized.
The managerial and administrative needs of high-net-worth families can be extensive, ranging from tax and estate planning to managing trusts and foundations. A family office can help meet those needs, tailoring the breadth and depth of its services to a given family requirements.
Ownership of yachts and planes, classic cars and works of art bring unique tax issues. Tax efficient ownership via LLCs, companies or trusts should be considered.
Without proper planning, estate and inheritance taxes can significantly reduce the amount of wealth available for future generations. It’s important to routinely review your estate and gift plans to address changes in tax laws and to ensure your wishes remain accurately reflected.
In this atmosphere of prevailing uncertainty and global economic interdependency, it’s important to have an investment strategy that will keep you on an even keel while also letting you remain flexible enough to capitalize on new opportunities when they arise.
The longevity of a family business depends on early ongoing succession planning. Communicating the results of that planning to family members and other key stakeholders in a timely fashion will increase the likelihood that the business and its value will endure well beyond leadership transition.
Protecting your family’s well-being and assets from various risks involves more than just obtaining adequate insurance coverage. It also entails making strategic choices about forms of asset ownership.
