There are places around the world where people can be protected from the very high taxes that come from having a lot of money. These places are called tax havens and the rich of the world often flock to these places so that they are not subjected to losing a lot of their money.
One place that many people may mistake for a tax haven is New Zealand. It is not a tax haven and it won’t ever be a tax haven in the future. It is, however, a tax transparent country. This means that the country is open about the taxes and that they often communicate with other countries that people may come from so that they can talk about the taxes that are being paid and the taxes of the different areas. There are many ways in which taxes are hidden and New Zealand does not allow that to happen.
As a transparency country, New Zealand knows that it is important to always be open about what is going on with taxes and what the people can do to reduce those taxes. The country does not promise that people will pay lower taxes but they do help the people who move to the country have a better understanding of where their taxed money is going. They are open about what they do with tax money and how much will be taken depending on the situation and the amount of wealth that the person has in their own bank account.
Geoffrey Cone is a global attorney. He works with families and individuals that move around the world or that live in different countries from where their wealth was acquired. He is one of the most prominent and he makes sure that he always helps people who are moving to other countries. He knows a lot about the laws around the world and New Zealand when it comes to taxes. He is able to advise the families that he serves on where would be a good place to move and what tax havens are available for people to move to.
As a New Zealand native, Geoff Cone knows that things are not completely free to live in New Zealand. He was subjected to taxes there and he suggests that people do not move there so that they won’t have to pay taxes. He knows that most people will end up being pretty disappointed if they move to New Zealand in the hopes of not paying taxes and, instead, just get a country that tells them what they are being taxed for and where the tax money that is taken is going depending on what the country is going to use it for.
