The SCF Group was originally established in 1989 by UK barrister Mr. B.M. Spencer-Higgins and his late Father John Spencer-Higgins. Today Mr. B.M. Spencer-Higgins still provides tax planning consultancy for both successful individuals recently arrived in the UK or considering relocating to the UK. In particular, his speciality is to ensure that any move is carried out in the most tax efficient way possible ensuring that hard earned family wealth is protected whilst also advising on how to legally protect assets in the highly litigious UK environment. For those who who arrived in the UK many years ago and were advised (correctly at the time) to purchase properties using offshore companies, advice can also be given on whether it is possible to de-envelope directly back to the original beneficial owner WITHOUT excessive Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) exposure: The reason property de-enveloping is now so important is because most properties owned by companies have become subject to a ‘new’ Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings (ATED), which can amount to tens of thousands of Pounds each year. However, as stated, for many individuals without advice, ATED cannot be avoided because of potential SDLT exposure that can itself amount to hundreds of thousands of Pounds! Finally, advice can also be given to companies and individuals trading and/or investing abroad. Unfortunately, the UK’s decision to leave the EU (BREXIT) has made it much more difficult to create tax efficient structures since the UK can no longer avail of the EU’s internal and constitutionally guaranteed directives and regulations. However, advice can still be given at relatively competitive rates including on how to establish companies within the EU with particular emphasis given to Ireland, Malta and Cyprus.
