Wait a minute: How do investments and real estate assets affect your taxes in Japan and overseas? Dramatically! Can you be confident that a tax adviser is really giving you the best advice if he is not an investment and/or real estate expert as well? Specialists in investment banking and real estate are often reluctant to introduce professionals from other fields with the right skill set for their clients.
Many people in Tokyo face this problem, but ISG has developed a comprehensive solution to make this all work more efficiently for you.
TAXES: Charles Rees will illustrate how to use the Japanese tax system to your advantage, and what investment and real estate choices are most beneficial for tax reduction purposes. Making sure that you keep more of your hard-earned income is a proven method of building up your net worth.
INVESTMENTS: Peter Schuetz will provide investment tips that will help you leverage real estate and tax reduction strategies. Short, mid and long term investments, properly implemented, will enable you to manage the risk of investing in real estate. If people who lost their houses due to the SUBPRIME crisis had understood risk, there would have been many fewer foreclosures. Liquidity at the right time is paramount to opening doors.
REAL ESTATE: Jason Hurst will explain how real estate in Japan can provide 10-15% yields and generate substantial tax benefits. You can buy a second property, and borrow up to 15 times your annual salary from certain Japanese banks, often with 100% financing for the right property. Also, depreciating an overseas property can actually reduce your Japanese income tax obligation while you build up a real-estate investment portfolio.
