A Word from the President
"It may surprise you to learn that the NUMBER ONE reason for people moving money offshore is NOT because of tax benefits but asset protection.
Today's Predaceous and Litigious society unfortunately, makes successful people vulnerable to lawsuits of every kind."

What Is An Offshore Company?
An offshore company or corporation and also known an International Business Company (IBC) is the same as any other company in that it is an entity recognized by law as a separate "entity" with limited liability. As such the company has the option to sell shares, the right to sue and be sued, and has perpetual existence.
An International Business Company (IBC) is the most popular type of offshore corporation for asset protection and privacy purposes. An IBC is usually a tax-exempt corporation that can do business all over the world except in the country where it has been incorporated.
Popular IBC jurisdictions include the British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, Mauritius and the Seychelles.
Apart from the traditional offshore centers, many 'onshore' jurisdictions have corporate structures that are attractive to international users. UK LLP , US LLC, UK Limited Companies, Hong Kong Limited Companies and EU companies are all examples of domestic structures of particular value for international tax planning purposes.
Structure of Majority of an IBC
International Business Companies management structures are flexible and may be designed in accordance with the widest variety of requirements.
There is no need to appoint any officers to operate the company. There is a requirement for only one owner, one director and one shareholder. All the shareholders and directors of an IBC may be either corporate or natural persons.
There are also no restrictions as to their nationality. Also, one and the same person may be director or shareholder.
Confidentiality and Secrecy
Confidentiality is one of the main benefits of an International Business Company and an important reason to have an offshore company to keep your assets out of reach of tax collectors and governments, IRS, FBI, CIA , ex-wives, vicious relatives or anyone wishing you bad.
All International Business Companies Ordinance contains extended privileges and strict confidentiality requirements for the companies.
The key features of Offshore Companies providing for complete confidentiality are:
••• Register of Members, Register of Directors and all Minutes and Resolutions by the Company are kept only with the Registered Agent under confidential due diligence and do not appear on the public record.
••• The shareholder information (Registrar of Shareholders) must be kept on file with the Registered Agent, where it is confidential and accessible only by the members of the company.
••• Details of the company beneficial owners, directors and shareholders are not publicly available.
••• The only documents held on public record are the Memorandum and Articles of Association, and normally they do not contain any indication as to the actual shareholders, directors or the beneficial owners of the company.
••• Company Management (Nominee) services can be used if the owner of an offshore IBC wishes to maintain reasonable secrecy as regards his real controlling position over the particular offshore company. A Nominee would effectively shield the beneficial owner of the offshore company from public scrutiny and an obvious relation to the given company.
••• Similarly, the services of Nominee Shareholder can be used to reach the desired level of confidentiality.
••• Another layer of confidentiality is keeping shares registered onto a nominee.
How an Offshore Company Will Benefit You
It's simply not true that an offshore company is a vehicle that can help only those involved in cross border business transactions or which will only function effectively as a mechanism to help companies mitigate their tax exposure.
An offshore company can help you the individual in up to at least 10 different ways - from tax reduction to asset protection:
••• Corporate Tax Reduction - If you are considering incorporating a company offshore through which you can trade, transact and conduct business, it is possible to select a jurisdiction through which you can trade but within which you have no corporate taxation liability at all for example.
••• Conduct Business - An offshore company is a legal entity which has many of the same intrinsic rights as an individual person so it can allow you to trade and invest through it for example whilst remaining one step removed from operations.
••• - Many offshore jurisdictions require little or no data be held on public file relating to those involved in the offshore company or to the affairs of the company. Even where data is required, there are options to include nominee director services to protect the beneficial owner of the company for example.
••• Reduce Expenses - Certain jurisdictions allow those with offshore companies incorporated therein the benefit of being able to reduce employee related expenses. If you have employees working in other countries you can legitimately avoid the likes of social security payments or withholding tax for example.
••• Personal Tax Reduction - as part of an overall financial management strategy for you, the individual, it is sometimes possible to incorporate an offshore company within your overall financial plan to offset personal taxation liabilities.
This requires specialist advice and depends entirely on your own personal circumstances though - so please take advice before taking action to ensure your proposed actions are legal and will not accidentally lay you open to greater exposure. Remember we can help you get advice and get solutions in place.
••• Protect Investments - Sometimes an offshore company can lend funds to businesses in other countries, therefore as an investor you could establish but not directly own such an offshore company and lend to a company set up in another country.
You could ensure interest rates are charged to lower tax obligations and you can protect your ability to repatriate investment funds. This is a benefit that investors sometimes use when they are working in countries with strict exchange controls and high taxes.
••• Maximize Profit, Minimize Tax - By operating a business through an offshore company in a low or no tax jurisdiction it's possible to minimize taxation exposure whilst maximizing profits.
For example, the offshore company as a legal entity can buy from one country and sell to a company in another country with the profits of the transaction being accrued in the offshore company in the low or no tax jurisdiction.
••• Asset Protection - when an offshore company is used in an overall asset protection strategy it is an incredibly useful mechanism towards the protection of your assets from taxation, litigation, erosion and general risk.
••• Simplify Business Operations - many offshore jurisdictions have very loose reporting and auditing requirements making it far simpler for those setting up or running a business to manage day to day operations.
••• Simplify Personal Wealth Management - Selling, transferring or reinvesting property, assets, investment or real estate in various countries around the world can be time consuming, expensive and complicated - but if you hold such assets within an offshore company, complete or partial ownership can be simply transferred by company shares rather than through the physical transfer of the assets in question.
