DESTINATION NEW ZEALAND
New Zealand is an attractive jurisdiction for the establishment of wealth planning structures, despite neither being offshore nor offering especially low on-shore tax rates. Its trust law is very much based on its English equivalent and New Zealand’s robust political and legal systems promote a stable economic and political environment.
Compliant with international standards of regulation and supervision, New Zealand’s position also makes it a favourable place for conducting business with Asian and South American markets.
New Zealand is a member of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
Some of the business advantages we enjoy in New Zealand are:
International reputation for ease of doing business and competitiveness;
Efficient tax system with no estate or inheritance tax, gift tax, stamp duties, or traditional capital gains tax regime;
Significant tax treaty network and trade agreements; and
Pragmatic and transparent public authorities.
