The fallout from the pandemic on often already stressed government finances – particularly in the developed world - has perhaps not yet been fully felt, and many believe that a new reality will dawn that will shift the dials in many countries to significantly higher taxes. In many emerging market economies as well, the significant additional funding that some sectors of society and the economy have needed, combined with lower revenues from key segments - for example, travel and leisure – offer compelling reasons, many believe, why governments should raise more tax. The headline income tax numbers might not change, but there are numerous ways in which governments can tinker with tax to produce greater revenues without hitting the average working person. And right bang in the spotlight are the wealthy investors, who are deemed able to withstand additional taxes, for example, inheritance tax, or even perhaps a wealth/assets tax, in some cases.

The Hubbis Digital Dialogue will bring together a panel of tax, compliance, wealth management and investment professionals to look into the crystal ball of taxation and analyse where these new taxes might arise, and most importantly, what private clients in Asia might think about doing in order to protect their assets, for example through wealth and trust structures, foundations, through life insurance solutions, or perhaps through the early disbursement of chunks of their wealth to family members
