Looking after your overseas investments

Some families in Samoa have overseas investment interests and particularly within the Pacific region.  These can be in form of individual asset ownership or in the form of businesses as a non-resident shareholder or through Samoan parent company structures.  By owning overseas business and investment interests exposes you to foreign as well as local tax issues. Knowing which countries Samoa has double tax agreements with and which countries that does not creates additional complexities.
