US/UK Private Clients

Our outstanding client service offering for business owners and high net worth individuals is truly unique. Our diverse practice of dual-qualified tax professionals are not only able to analyse the “global picture” but are experienced in combining subject-matter expertise from a breadth of specialist teams in the UK and globally to provide integrated tax compliance and advisory work across a number of complex areas. For example, some areas of US personal taxation are closely intertwined with US business/corporate tax issues (including GILTI, CFCs, PFICs, and “check the box” elections) – these are high-risk, complicated topics requiring a combination of in-depth, specialist knowledge from both personal and business/corporate tax perspectives. We take a holistic approach to such matters, combining with our separate, designated US business tax and US corporate tax teams to produce consolidated deliverables to our clients, through one consolidated point of contact.

Many of our clients are wealthy Americans living in the UK for whom the tax landscape has changed significantly in recent years and continues to evolve. For example, the deemed domicile rules now expose longer term UK residents to tax on worldwide income and gains in the UK as well as the US. This dual tax exposure brings some complex challenges which our team of experts are experienced in navigating and by working in partnership with you – our clients - are able to offer practical and tax efficient solutions.

“The Deloitte team have been doing a terrific job for me over the years - you can count me a very happy customer.”
