After years of tax combat, your livelihood and, worse still, your family home are seriously threatened by one perfectly explicable mistaken interpretation of the Tax Acts (how many of them are there?).
Your PI insurer has collapsed and you are fully exposed financially.
Or have you recognised that this could happen and taken early action to protect your essential assets? This presentation considers the 'rules' of asset protection and what is achievable at an early planning stage.
- Sources of attacks on assets (personal debt, professional negligence, breach of directors' duties, divorce)
- Basic principles of asset protection
- Practical problems with asset protection (or who do you trust with the control of 'your' assets)
- Protective business structures
- Tax planning aspects
