Jakarta, Indonesia

Tuesday September 19, 2012
9:00 am – 11:00 am


Join us for an interactive event led by a leading panel of speakers specializing in tax – and estate planning strategies for high net worth individuals and their families. Increased global mobility has resulted in more mixed-citizenship, mixed-residence marriages and families. At the same time, the U.S. and other developed countries have become more sophisticated in attempts to follow and tax the overseas wealth of their citizens and residents. As a result, high net worth individuals, planners and advisers must have some knowledge of the income and tax rules of the U.S. and to know how the rules are applied.
