HNWs looking for the best tax lawyers and accountants to help them negotiate labyrinthine revenue regimes and cross-border issues, plan their estates or to set up sensible structures, need look no further than the Spear’s Tax & Trust Advisers Index 2022
The 2022 edition of our guide to the finest tax advisers for private clients arrives at an interesting time, as the UK Government strives to boost the economy after the three-headed shock of leaving the European Union, war in Ukraine disrupting already-stretched global supply lines and two years of the Covid pandemic.
Every year the Spear’s Research Unit raids its contacts book to put a set of questions to knowledgeable advisers on the general state of tax and the big questions their clients are most concerned with. This year a change of heart on wealth tax was uncovered, and growing fears over the coming recession. Readers might wish to jump straight to a particular section of the index, using the following links:
