Earlier this year, the United Kingdom introduced a new qualifying asset holding company (QAHC) regime. The aim of the regime is to increase the competitiveness of the United Kingdom in the asset management space. With the QAHC regime, the U.K. tax landscape is now comparable with other holding company locations. U.S. asset managers that have a presence in the United Kingdom and/or invest in assets located in the United Kingdom and Europe will want to explore the QAHC regime to evaluate its potential benefits.
