IFS is a boutique international tax practice based in central London specifically created to assist entrepreneurial clients with innovative long term commercial structures for their businesses.
Established in 1971 by Roy Saunders, IFS was initially geared towards entrepreneurs trying to extend their UK based businesses to the common market, now the European Union, in which at that time the UK was only a prospective member. An IFS office in London and Amsterdam catered for both their advisory and implementation needs in creating the appropriate structure for such expansion. In the 1980s, Roy opened offices in New York, Madrid, Jersey, Cyprus and the Netherlands Antilles to help US based clients expand their businesses to the developing markets outside of the US, as well as EU clients wanting to invest and develop businesses in the US. The 90s saw the development of Eastern Europe where IFS began to develop its significant client base in Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and many other countries. And now with the growth of China, India and Africa on the international stage there is no dearth of potential markets which require IFS’s expertise.
IFS routinely provides advice in Corporate Transactions, Transfer Pricing, Mergers and Acquisitions, Structured Finance Deals, Royalty and IPR Transactions, Private Equity and Venture Capital Funds, International Real Estate, Changes of Personal Residence, Corporate Redomiciliation, Internationally Mobile Individuals, Taxation of Entertainers and Sportsmen and Global Employment Solutions.
