Maggie Gonzalez - Partner.

Maggie joined Buzzacott in 2016 and is a Partner in our Private Client team.

She has over 25 years’ experience within the international private client field. She and her team specialise in the UK taxation of offshore trusts and structures, their settlors and beneficiaries and non-doms generally. 

Maggie helps her clients navigate the complexities of the UK’s extensive anti-avoidance legislation as it applies to offshore trusts and non-doms, covering income tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax, providing practical solutions to the many challenges encountered by internationally mobile clients and their structures. This includes advising on residence, domicile and the operation of the remittance basis. Maggie is also experienced in advising Americans and applying the UK/US double tax treaty.

Maggie is a chartered accountant and chartered tax adviser. She is a member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation’s technical sub-committees covering succession taxes, capital gains tax and the taxation of investment income. Drawing from her wealth of expertise, Maggie has contributed a chapter on the UK taxation of offshore trusts for the book Trusts in Prime Jurisdictions, published by Globe Law and Business Ltd.

Beyond her desk, Maggie plays the trombone in a brass band and is a keen gardener.
