There are many things to consider when purchasing a real estate in the U.S. regardless of being a citizen, or a foreign investor, and it might be even more challenging with the speculation of a U.S. tax reform in play.

Senior tax and legal professionals from Zhong Lun Law Firm, KPMG and Proskauer Rose LLP., and commercial real estate experts from JLL are bringing together a 2-part interactive lunch seminar on March 15 and April 19, 2018 to discuss commercial, tax and legal considerations when investing U.S. real estate for commercial and residential purposes.

Part I (March 15, 2018) seminar topics will include:

  • What to look for in a U.S. property
  • Commercial aspects for foreign tax residents when investing in a condominium for lease and in development real property projects
  • Best method to pool investment funds and key provisions to consider
  • Legal and tax concerns for foreign tax residents

The seminar series is open to legal and accounting professionals, corporate/institutional investors acquiring commercial/residential property, individuals purchasing residential apartments for personal use or for investment, those wishing to deepen their knowledge of investing in commercial or private properties, and those who are interested in the taxation dynamic in the U.S.
