The talk:

Global mobility and international investment are on the agenda for many individuals and families, with the UK continuing to be high on the list of possible destinations. However, questions still loom around visa and citizenship options and pre-immigration tax planning.

Join us at this webinar where Ugo Privitera and Larry Auyeung from Withers Hong Kong will discuss key considerations and common pitfalls.
