Profile

Sophie Dworetzsky

Description

With a client base of entrepreneurs, business owners and high-flying fund managers, Sophie Dworetzsky says her practice is increasing in both ‘depth and detail’ when it comes to family office structuring. She adds that, before setting up an office, HNWs should think about tax efficiency, both from an ownership stake and from a remuneration stake. There are other pertinent questions too, such as, ‘How will the managers be incentivised?’

As for the future, Dworetzsky cites the possibility of tax rises ‘to pay for the black hole’ that Covid-19 will leave behind. She adds that finding a way to do this while maintaining the UK’s tax competitiveness won’t be easy.
