Three Things the Isle of Man Government must consider in 2018….as seen in Portfolio
The last few years have been extremely interesting for the Isle of Man’s latest Government, and there are a number of changes coming into effect this year that will ensure the challenges keep coming during 2018. The Island’s Government needs to look ahead at this New Year positively to build on what it has done well over the last few years whilst always looking to improve and evolve.
Register of Beneficial Ownership of UK Land and Property - Stuart Foster
The UK government recently closed a consultation during which it took views as to how a new public register of the beneficial ownership of UK land and real estate property may be introduced. This new register of property ownership, that is expected to include all overseas companies, has been proposed for some time now and it seems only a matter of time before it is brought into force. The question for us to consider is how the introduction of such a register will affect clients of Peregrine.

I recently spent the weekend in Kenmare on the West Coast of Ireland for the annual TAG meeting of the British Islands members; this year was complemented by four visiting members from North America. During the return journey (which included four airports, several delays, lost golf clubs and a race in a taxi to make the final flight home), the question arose as to why it was worth making such efforts to attend these events.

Following the UK’s “yes” vote to leave the European Union (“EU”) after four and a half decades, many of the consequences of Brexit are still unknown; indeed, there is much speculation within the aviation industry about how Brexit may affect those working in and using the sector.
