El metaverso se refiere a un mundo virtual altamente inmersivo donde las personas puedrán reunirse para socializar, jugar, trabajar y comerciar con bienes y servicios virtuales (y no virtuales). Algunos lo llaman un universo paralelo, poblado por avatares y toda forma de elementos digitales (en forma de NFTs) que se encuentran en nuestro mundo diario.

I’ve heard this many times over the years.

The tax treatment of UK tax residents on income from US Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) continues to be a source of concern for many advisers. The short end of the stick is that providing the income always belonged to the LLC members then HMRC will allow a tax credit against UK tax for any US tax suffered.
