Hong Kong – UK bridge: planning for coming to the UK webinar

Samar Shams & Hilesh Chavda & Joshua Yam
17 September 2020

Please join us for our ‘Hong Kong – UK bridge: planning for coming to the UK’ webinar.

With the backdrop of political tensions between Hong Kong and China and changes to the UK’s immigration rules welcoming Hong Kongers, the UK is seen as a good place in which to invest or live. A panel of experts from Spencer West will guide you through the key issues individuals, entrepreneurs and their families should be thinking about before coming to or investing in the UK.

We will walk through the immigration changes which give many people from Hong Kong the right to live, work and settle in the UK. We will consider the practicalities of purchasing property in the UK. Finally, we will explore the tax and succession planning that should be considered before moving to and/or investing in the UK.

This webinar is free but spaces are limited.

Time: 11am BST

Date: Tuesday 6 October 2020
