Overseas Investment

Our expertise

Chen Palmer has expertise in providing businesses and high net worth individuals with advice on the requirements of the Overseas Investment Act 2005.  Overseas investment advice is provided by Nick Russell and James Dunne.

We have assisted clients involved in potentially controversial overseas investment, such as investment in farm land.  Our clients value the experience, expertise and discretion which we bring to overseas investment applications.  As one of our clients recently told us after several successful applications for consent, "...it all seems so easy these days!"  We can:

  • Advise you whether you need Overseas Investment Office consent to carry out a transaction in which you or your business is involved.  Where a transaction does require consent, we can prepare your application for consent and liaise with the Overseas Investment Office to ensure that your application is processed and approved as quickly as possible.
  • Assist you in structuring your proposed transaction in a way which meets the needs of your business and ensures that it complies with the requirements of the Overseas Investment Act.
