Fragomen and Werksmans Webinar: Relocating and Citizenship - Investment Programmes

Are you thinking of relocating using Residency and Citizenship by Investment Programmes?

When considering a relocation or citizenship, tax and exchange control implications - in both the destination country and in South Africa, need to be considered carefully.

Werksmans Director Robyn Armstrong who specialises in international tax planning joins Ziphozihle Ntlanganiso, a Senior Advisor from Fragomen Africa, Grace Ding, Relationship Manager and Alexander Finch, Immigration Lawyer, from Fragomen in the UK, to provide an overview of key emigration considerations.

The session will provide attendees with an understanding of investor emigration, exploring the macro and micro factors investors need to consider, including:
• The popular United States EB-5 program
• Opportunities for transnational entrepreneurs interested in UAE emigration residency programmes
• A brief overview of Caribbean citizenship by investment programmes

Robyn Armstrong will share her insights on:
• The difference between "financial emigration" and ceasing to be a tax resident
• The implications of "financial emigration" and ceasing to be a tax resident
• The interaction between emigration and the "expat tax"

The Fragomen UK team will also provide an overview of UK investor emigration and option for moving into Europe including:
• UK investor visas
• Visa options for establishing a business in the UK
• European citizenship and residency by investment programmes

Join us for an update as our panel of professionals unpack the tax and exchange control and emigration landscape in relation to acquiring residency and citizenship via Investment Programmes.
