Expat Chat Episode 77 – Inheritance Considerations For Expats


Welcome to the seventy seventh episode of the #Expatchat podcast where we discuss the latest tax and financial issues affecting an #Australianexpat.

In today’s Expat Chat we talk about the sensitive topic of inheritances, both being received by Australian expats as well as when a Australian expat passes away overseas.

We are currently in the largest wealth transfer in history as the assets accumulated by the baby boomers are transferred to their respective family members however how does this change for those Australians living overseas?

Living overseas and receiving an inheritance as an Australian expat has its own difficulties and we hope that this episode today makes the process easier to understand and execute.
