Lawyer Geoffrey Cone Response on New Zealand Foreign Trusts and Taxes

New Zealand’s foreign trusts were recently reported in the media in a way that paints a totally different picture than what is on the ground. Lawyer Geoffrey Cone took the time to address the state of affairs on the ground in an article that was widely circulated in most social networks. Cone disputed the claims that New Zealand was a tax haven, and explained that it does not appear on the list of all tax havens that is kept by OECD. Further, he explained that in tax havens there is no transparency and minimal or no taxes, a situation that is totally different in New Zealand.

 

 

Tax Transparency and Foreign Trusts

 

 

New Zealand appears on the white list of OECD for having implemented the 2002 OECD Model Agreement on Exchange of Information on Tax Matters. New Zealand was in fact among the first countries to appear in this list. New Zealand also demonstrates its leadership in as far as tax transparency is concerned on the way it handles its foreign trusts and the strict requirements placed on the trustees. The measures above are all meant to aid in the exchange of information with governments that make such requests.

 

 

Rigorous Regime

 

 

New rules were introduced in 2006 by Michael Cullen after lengthy consultations. A resident trustee from New Zealand in a foreign trust is supposed to fill and submit an IR607 (Foreign Trust Disclosure Form), as well as keep records and financial for tax purposes in NZ. These include details of all assets and liabilities of the trust, and the money the trustee gets and spends. If they carry on a business, the trustee ought to keep information on the accounting systems, codes and charts of the account. The records must be kept in NZ and in English language to escape heavy penalties. In 2011, the powers were enhanced when the world standard money laundering legislation was enacted.

Laidlaw is embroiled in further legal battle after Relmada files an amended complaint

Relmada, a renowned pharmaceutical company producing new drug therapies for the treatment of acute pain, has filed an amended complaint in the Nevada Court System against Laidlaw. The amended complaint forms part of its previously filed lawsuit against Laidlaw which asserted that Laidlaw breached its fiduciary duty to Relmada when acting as its investment bank. The amended complaint comes on the backdrop of Laidlaw’s dissemination of false and erroneous proxy materials in a press release on December 4, 2015.

According to Relmada, Laidlaw’s press release was in contravention of the federal securities laws. Without a doubt, the actions of Laidlaw have had an adverse effect on Relmada from a financial point of view. For instance, Relmada’s stock price has been on the decline ever since. In this regard, Relmada also seeks economic damages due to the losses the company has made in terms of stock price as well as the legal fees it incurred in reaction to Laidlaw’s deceptive proxy materials.

In the meantime, the federal district court has decreed an injunction that enjoins Laidlaw and Eitner and Ahern from disseminating any additional deceptive proxy materials until the court case is settled. Relmada hopes that through this lawsuit, Laidlaw’s long history of not complying with securities laws will be punished and brought to an end.

Laidlaw is an investment bank with more than 170 years of experience providing all-inclusive investment banking services to native and international companies, institutions, corporate entrepreneurs and private clients across the world. Laidlaw’s executive team comprises of Matthew D. Eitner who is the Chief Executive Officer, and James Ahern, who serves as the senior managing partner and head of capital markets.

Don Ressler Uses Fashion As a Medium For Self Esteem Improvement

Don Ressler believes that all people have the right to feel good about themselves. However, in most cases, people are not going to feel good unless they like the way they look. This doesn’t necessarily mean for women to dress in formal wear. One thing that can be said for people is that they have different tastes. Therefore, women are also going to have different styles on adweek.com. Don Ressler and the other founders of JustFab understand this. For this reason, they use the analytical tools in order to find out what people like. Then they take the time to provide these types of products for people.

JustFab is run under TechStyle. TechStyle has been established with the purpose of bringing a great influence to the fashion industry. Given Adam Goldenberg’s attention to what is selling and the ideas of Don Ressler, it was certain that TechStyle was going to be a major success. One thing that contributed to the success of the company was the experience of both founders in the fashion and beauty industry. Other companies that Don Ressler has founded were Intermix and Intelligent Beauty. These companies offered different forms of fashion for women.

While the other fashion companies that Don Ressler was a part of sold clothing and make up, it was when he has started JustFab and the divisions that he has decided that he wanted to take a different approach to fashion. He has come to understand that beauty comes in diversity. He has also come to understand that not everyone is going to look good in the same type of style. He has decided that his company is supposed to be all inclusive. This means that the company is going to sell all styles for all body types and sizes.

Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler have decided to establish the TechStyle headquarters at ElSegundo CA because of the opportunity that is available for growth. One thing that is very important when it comes to business is that there is a lot of room and opportunity for growth. Don Ressler understands the importance of progress, which is why he makes sure that he is constantly looking for ways to move forward.
