New Zealand

New Zealand is an attractive jurisdiction for the establishment of wealth planning structures, despite neither being offshore nor offering especially low tax rates. Its trust law is very much based on its English equivalent and its robust political and legal systems promote a stable economic and political environment.

Compliant with international standards of regulation and supervision, New Zealand’s relative proximity to Asia also makes it a favourable place for conducting business with the Asian market.

New Zealand Key Facts

  • Mature legal system based on English common law
