Private tax compliance and voluntary disclosures
More than ever, tax compliance is an important issue for high-net-worth private individuals with international interests. Careful planning and compliance with all the relevant provisions are essential. KPMG can handle these responsibilities. Individuals who have not been tax-compliant in the past few years should lay firm foundations for the future by disclosing their assets to the authorities. KPMG supports its clients in these matters.

Our experienced tax experts can advise you on how to structure income streams. This help is available to both senior executives and those who have retired from the world of business.
