The fallout from the pandemic on often already stressed government finances – particularly in the developed world - has perhaps not yet been fully felt, and many believe that a new reality will dawn that will shift the dials in many countries to significantly higher taxes. In many emerging market economies as well, the significant additional funding that some sectors of society and the economy have needed, combined with lower revenues from key segments - for example, travel and leisure – offer compelling reasons, many believe, why governments should raise more tax. The headline income tax numbers might not change, but there are numerous ways in which governments can tinker with tax to produce greater revenues without hitting the average working person. And right bang in the spotlight are the wealthy investors, who are deemed able to withstand additional taxes, for example, inheritance tax, or even perhaps a wealth/assets tax, in some cases.

The Hubbis Digital Dialogue of January 13 will bring together a panel of tax, compliance, wealth management and investment professionals to look into the crystal ball of taxation and analyse where these new taxes might arise, and most importantly, what private clients in Asia might think about doing in order to protect their assets, for example through wealth and trust structures, foundations, through life insurance solutions, or perhaps through the early disbursement of chunks of their wealth to family members

    The Rich and Tax – Pressure is Mounting to Replenish State Coffers Across the Globe

    • In broad-brush terms, what sort of pressure are government finances under in Asia and from which segments of their economies and societies are they likely to source additional tax revenues?
    • What is the likelihood of the wealthier being the key targets for the higher tax revenues in the foreseeable future, and why?
    • Will we likely see estate/wealth taxes in any of the leading economies, such as China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia and others?
    • Will inheritance tax finally emerge or return across Asia? Why? Where?
    • Are we likely to see new tax amnesties aimed at inducing wealth repatriation in the region, for example, in China?
    • What does all this mean for wealth, estate and legacy planning & structuring for Asia’s private clients?
    • Who do they turn to for advice and solutions?
    • What sort of conversations should advisors have with their clients around these issues?
