For close to two decades, Cone Marshall has been advocating for international tax transparency through the trusts and companies they represent in New Zealand. On several occasions, the expert barrister, and tax advice company has been at the forefront in spearheading for international tax reforms in New Zealand either through direct participation in the formulation of fiscal policies or their general interpretation. Their expertise in either role has seen the Geoffrey Cone and Karen Marshall firm expand to being named one of the most prominent international tax and wealth planning company in the country.
Services offered by Cone Marshall?
The firm specializes in international taxation and policy interpretation as well as trust creation and wealth planning. Primarily, the company helps establish foreign trusts, partnerships, and corporations in New Zealand on behalf of international investors. Given the attention tax evasion and avoidance raises in different countries, the firm’s wealth of experience in local and international taxation policies thereby comes in handy in ensuring these companies are tax compliant. In effect, Cone Marshall plays a crucial role in getting New Zealand get off the hook of being labeled a tax haven while solidifying the legitimacy of their clients in the face of their stakeholders.
Who does it serve?
Unlike most of other wealth planners of the day, Cone Marshall doesn’t provide these services to private clients. Instead, the company only extends its services to other financial, tax and policy advisers. Most of Cone Marshall’s clients include family and estate advisors, private banks, and fellow attorneys as well as other related institutions outside New Zealand. The firm helps other agencies plan for their individual clients by either interpreting the tax policies or helping establish trusts and other local structures locally. These patties can rest in the knowledge that Cone is a registered law firm and their discussions are thereby entirely confidential and fully covered by the attorney-client privilege.
