Asset protection

Protecting your assets for your family and future generations can be a key part of your tax planning strategy. KPMG Family Office can develop strategies to insulate and compartmentalize your assets and liabilities.

Luxury assets

Purchasing and owning luxury assets such as aircraft, yachts and vacation properties come with tax considerations. As part of your family office tax planning, KPMG Family Office can help you optimize the structure of the ownership and operations of your luxury assets.

Structured giving

When you support charitable causes, planning strategically can help maximize the tax benefits. Our tax professionals can help you structure your charitable giving in a tax-effective manner and provide guidance for enhancing your philanthropic impact.

U.S. cross-border and international tax

Tax laws differ across the border and internationally, so it's important to ensure tax compliance if you have a business, property or family member outside of Canada. In addition to Canadian tax services, KPMG Family Office can help simultaneously manage foreign tax regimes arising from citizenship, emigration, residency, compensation and foreign operations.

Worldwide tax compliance

Tax compliance can be complex, especially when you are working with global tax laws and tax changes. By using technology and process efficiencies, KPMG Family Office can help prepare your domestic and foreign tax and regulatory returns to assist with worldwide tax compliance.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Tax planning is often at the core of a family office tax strategy. Our proactive, trusted tax professionals provide independent, objective advice tailored to your unique goals, objectives and long-term strategic vision.

KPMG Family Office offers a range of tax services for individuals and families, including tax planning, tax compliance, trust planning, estate planning, cross-border and international tax, and more.

For those making a cross-border move, one of the biggest considerations is the Canadian departure tax. When you leave Canada, you are considered to have sold certain types of property (even if you haven't) at their fair market value and reacquired them for the same amount. This deemed disposition subjects you to a departure tax (or capital gains) on your assets prior to your move to the U.S.

Buying and owning luxury assets such as aircrafts, yachts and vacation properties comes with a number of tax considerations that tax professionals can help with. For example, for family businesses that purchase a private plane, tax planning should focus on how the asset can be structured within the business to be tax efficient.
