OVERSEAS REAL ESTATE
We work with client’s and their professional team to identify optimal holding structures for overseas real estate.
We aim to take advantage of inheritance tax laws, elimination of capital gains tax and the reduction of transaction costs for purchaser and vendor.
BUSINESS PROCESS OUTSOURCING (BPO)
BPO consists of the removal of non core activities by an organisation and transfer to a specialized third party based in a low cost jurisdiction. This enables the organisation to concentrate on their core valued added service(s) or product(s) and dramatically reduce costs.
We are able to provide BPO to our professional intermediaries for key areas including; bookkeeping, management reporting, financial statement preparation and compliance review. These are critical services for all of our clients and they are often expensive to provide themselves due to the requirement for skilled professionals to perform the service. For certain clients, e.g legal firms, such areas do not form part of their core valued added service.
Our BPO operations are performed out of South Africa which has a growing reputation within the BPO industry. The advantages of using South Africa over other more established BPO centres include:
* Similar time zone to Europe promoting an immediate response time.
* Availability of highly educated graduates.
* English speaking professional candidates.
* World renowned professional accounting body.
* Promotion of BPO services by the local government.

U.K REAL ESTATE
United Kingdom real estate as an asset class is amongst the most sought after in the world.
The United Kingdom is one of the strongest members of the EU with renowned economic and political stability. With the benefit of UK real estate (in England & Wales) being protected by English Common Law the United Kingdom has been a favourite of international investors for its safety, capital growth and strong history of secure investment return.
With property transaction costs being amongst the lowest in Europe, international investors have long bought UK property assets for tax efficiency, security, preserving confidentiality and for passing to their heirs.
Through Bulldog’s network of corporate and private investors, financial institutions and boutique auction houses specializing in commercial and residential real estate, we are able to provide access to off market real estate opportunities and developments in the United Kingdom.
