Course Description

Almost one million foreign individuals are relocating to the United States to find a permanent home in America every year. Many of these immigrants owned substantial wealth that they have made during the course of their lifetimes, which have nothing to do with success in the United States. In addition to the tax laws imposed by the national government, each U.S. state has its own tax laws on residents subject to its jurisdiction, thus creating a complex tax system. Because of this, foreign nationals and entities seeking to immigrate in the U.S. must first engage in pre-immigration tax planning to minimize tax exposure. Failure to create a proper plan could lead to unwanted tax burden.

Pre-immigration tax planning, however, is not a simple undertaking. It requires in-depth understanding of various rules and exceptions. This webinar is for all the accounting professionals who are offering the Pre-Immigration Tax planning services to their clients. It is very important for accounting professionals to understand that whatever advise they are offering must be compliant with the U.S. tax law and the laws imposed by each jurisdiction where the individuals are planning to immigrate.

There are several techniques can be used to ensure there is no tax in the U.S. on gains and earnings accrued before U.S. residency. This seminar will review the principals behind these techniques and the techniques themselves. The 1.5 hour webinar would cover : 

  • Different types of taxations pattern.

  • Estate Taxes
