The two-hour events, taking place at 12 noon and 5.30pm at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club in Hamilton, will feature a presentation by Mr. Arun [Ernie] Nagratha, CPA, CA, CPA [Illinois], who is a partner at Trowbridge; as well as local expert Carla Seely, the Vice President of Pension and Investments at Freisenbruch-Meyer Group.

Directly following the seminar, there will be time for questions and answers about any other expatriate tax issues that participants may need assistance with.

Mr. Nagratha is a Canadian Chartered Professional Accountant and a US Certified Public Accountant, who specialises in expatriate taxation as it relates to Canadians living and working around the world.

According to Ms. Seely, the upcoming seminar will provide expatriates living in Bermuda with an excellent opportunity to gain a better understanding of issues relating to tax and what is required of Canadian citizens while living abroad.

She stated, “Arun and I will discuss a range of topics on June 6th, but I think participants will find the Q and A portion of the event most helpful when it comes to guiding their decision making process as it relates to tax planning, property ownership and retirement planning. It will be an in-depth and informative seminar and is free for the public to attend.”
