US Share transfer guide

Download this free guide that looks at effective estate planning for holders of US company shares.

This in-depth guide includes:



You are currently liable for US Estate Tax on death, regardless of whether you reside within or outside the United States.

You are liable to 40% US estate tax on those shareholdings. 

Over and above the 60,000 USD tax-free allowance threshold, a tax charge will apply to the value of 40% of the shareholding – meaning that essentially your beneficiaries will receive significantly less than you had probably intended.

Investors with assets based in a different jurisdiction from where they are resident or domiciled can sometimes be unaware of the potential tax consequences of doing so. This could include exposure to inheritance and estate taxes as well as probate requirements in the jurisdiction where those assets are situated. One such country is the United States.
