In our modern global economy understanding the dynamics of taxes across nations is an absolute necessity. If I want to do business outside of the country I reside in or if foreign businesses want to do business with me inside my country, taxes will come into the picture. Geoffrey Cones and Karen Marshall understand this issue very well and have built careers out of helping their clients create international tax plans. With Geoffrey Cone’s extensive background in international taxes and Karen Marshall’s experience in advising and managing trust boards, they provide their clients with the services needed to maintain the tax transparency that the laws of New Zealand require.
When you think of international tax laws it’s easy to get an inaccurate and sensationalist idea of what international tax laws are about. In reality it’s not like the front page stories but more to hold corporations and bankers accountable taxation and help manage their fortunes. In practice, international tax laws are designed to prevent these sort of things from happening through tax transparency. The international tax laws of New Zealand are designed to prevent foreign businesses from hiding transfer of money and business activities in order to avoid scrutiny.
Cone Marshall was formed to help businesses comply with the tax transparency laws of New Zealand. With the guidance of its founders the firm helps its clients understand how to conduct their business in New Zealand in a way that ensures full compliance with tax laws. Cone Marshall also offers trust planning as well. Under the expert guidance of Karen Marshall, the firm provides trust management services to its clients, but if clients desire Cone Marshall will accept a role as mere advisors. The experience Karen Marshall has gathered over the years gives the firm decisive, expert leadership needed for managing large trusts.
Cone Marshall is a rarity in the world of tax laws and trust management. Combining the talents of Geoffrey Cone and Karen Marshall the firm has excelled for years in providing its combination of trust management and international tax services. If its past is any indicator the firm won’t be stopping any time soon.
