Este libro es a la vez una desmistificación sobre las llamadas jurisdicciones offshore, también conocidos como "paraísos fiscales" y una guía practica de opciones para la eficiente estructuración de patrimonios. <br />En sus páginas el lector encontrará una explicación de cómo y por qué existen estas jurisdicciones y las razones por las cuales los países que abusan de los impuestos para financiar cada vez más abultados gastos y las organizaciones supranacionales que los aglutinan, intentan y seguirán intentando, demonizarlas. También es una referencia indispensable para quienes buscan mecanismos para preservar la privacidad de sus activos en la “era de la transparencia. Para sorpresa de muchos Martín Litwak explica en estas páginas por qué esto ya no es únicamente relevante para los más ricos, sino de cualquier persona que tenga bienes que pretenda pasar a sus herederos sin que queden atrapados por una puja de voraces aparatos fiscales y leyes de distintas jurisdicciones que se contradicen entre sí. <br /><br />SOBRE EL AUTOR<br /><br />Martín Litwak es abogado en Argentina, el Reino Unido y las Islas Vírgenes Británicas. En la actualidad se desempeña como CEO de Litwak & Partners, una boutique de servicios legales especializados en planificación patrimonial internacional, intercambio de información (FATCA/CRS), amnistías fiscales, estructuración de fondos de inversión y finanzas cororativas.<br />En 2017, Martín Litwak fundó el primer “Family office” exclusivamente concentrado en aspectos legales, fiduciarios e impositivos. Desde allí atiende a diario las necesidades de decenas de familias latinoamericanas que califican como “ultra high net Worth” o institucionales y que poseen activos distribuidos en todo el mundo. Martín Litwak ha escrito numerosos artículos académicos y de difusión sobre temas de su especialidad, ha brindado conferencias en América Latina, Estados Unidos y Europa y habitualmente colabora en diferentes medios.
