HXL Residence Programs

In some circumstances, a change in domicile is required for individuals and families who live in countries with political instability and economic uncertainty. Having the ability to live in another country may result in increased security, privacy and higher quality of life. Residence programs is now increasingly becoming important in international planning for high-net worth individuals and families.

However, there are a number of factors that you must take into consideration when moving to another country and making it your permanent home. Becoming legally domiciled to live permanently in a particular jurisdiction will raise a number of issues including;

? taxation; specifically, income tax and inheritance tax (if applicable);
? your home country placing restrictions on capital movement upon becoming a residence of another country;
? availability of health services and the requirement of health insurance;
? inheritance and estate planning for families; and
? the impact on yourself and family.

You should not relocate to another country purely for taxation reasons. It is important to ascertain whether you and/or your family will be happy living in a new environment and can adapt to a new way of living.
