Frequently Asked Questions

A Domestic company is a local company registered in its own country and operating in the jurisdiction in which it is registered. It also pays taxes in the same country of incorporation, has a local management and usually handles domestic trade.

A non-resident company is not a local company, registered in a foreign jurisdiction and company’s management is based outside of that jurisdiction. Typically, a Non-Resident Entity does business in jurisdictions other than the country in which it was originally incorporated.

Since the emergence of offshore zones, official authorities have been trying to influence companies registered in them. They seek to oblige business structures to play by their own rules and neutralize the advantages of such territories:

  • no taxes or minimal rates;
  • availability of benefits for young companies;
  • concealment of information about beneficiaries.

So far, such attempts have led to little, but offshore companies are changing one way or another. For now, they still remain “safe havens” for businesses of any level. Here you can still avoid paying extortionate taxes, tedious litigation and unnecessary publicity.

In addition to these advantages, business owners when registering offshore do not have to worry about their companies being classified as unreliable. And this is often decisive when working in international markets!

But every rule has its exceptions. Over time, offshore zones with enormous risks have emerged. They gradually found themselves on the “black lists” of leading banks and came under the close attention of regulators. That is why, when choosing a new jurisdiction, it is important to choose safe countries with loyal legislation. This is especially true during periods of instability in the global economy and the promotion of deoffshorization policies.

Many businessmen prefer offshore companies to use the opportunity to legally optimize their business costs and take advantage of the benefits offered.

The most important benefits of an offshore company are tax benefits, privacy and confidentiality, asset protection and lawsuits.

The advantage of setting up an offshore company lies in the tax benefits available to foreign businesses. Also, integral parts of the offshore company are the location of your business, minimal accounting, auditing, ownership of real estate, cost savings benefits.
An offshore company is an absolutely legal organization with a high level of privacy and confidentiality.

Offshore companies can provide an additional level of protection and privacy:

  • protection from lawsuits, creditors and government seizure.
  • protected by strict privacy laws, making it difficult for creditors or litigants to seize these assets.
  • protection of assets such as intellectual property, real estate and other investments.
  • prohibition of disclosure of information relating to the owners, directors and shareholders of the company.

Asset protection in offshore companies refers to the use of legal methods under a foreign jurisdiction to hedge assets against domestic risks.

The best type of company and country that has laws that strictly protect offshore assets is the registration of a Trust in offshore jurisdictions such as the Cook Islands, Nevis and Belize. All these countries are politically stable and their legislation provides reliable asset protection.

The confidentiality of information about the beneficiaries and the trust is guaranteed by the Trustee, who is obliged to act in the interests of the beneficiaries and, accordingly, maintain confidentiality.

Advantages from an Offshore Company include:
Tax saving. Low tax benefits or tax avoidance.
Asset protection. Separating your assets from you as an individual.
Privacy. offshore corporate structure it separates you from your business as well as assets and liabilities.
High Confidentiality. In many offshore countries few or no records have to be maintained publicly.
Flexible and favourable corporate legislation. Simplified corporate laws, auditing and financial reporting requirements.
Perception of your business. The impression that you have an overseas business.
Owning property. Property ownership may include tax savings: inheritance tax, income tax, capital gains tax etc.
Broader range of investments. freedom to invest anywhere they like whether it be in any economic, financial or business activity. 
Lower labour cost. Reduce or eliminate the cost of recruitment.
Better banking infrastructure. there are still many banks that are welcoming offshore companies.
Low maintenance cost.
Low capital requirements for offshore business.
Access to Tax Treaties.

Attempts to denigrate offshore companies are constantly being made. The media and other information sources call them oases for illegal businesses that have earned capital through fraud and evading taxes. Such statements are difficult to refute due to the confidentiality of companies registered in offshore zones. But someone believes them without evidence.

In fact, owning an offshore company is not illegal. But only if the business registration is carried out according to all the rules. Here it is better to seek the help of specialists who will help you avoid mistakes and check all documents.

The following forms of companies are most often registered in offshore companies:

  • LLC (Limited Liability Company);
  • LTD (Limited Company);
  • IBC (International Business Company).

The process of deoffshorization inevitably introduces changes to the existing rules of jurisdictions. If previously it was possible to use a minimum package of documents to register a business and get a guarantee of 100% anonymity, now everything has become much more complicated.

To obtain maximum economic benefits from offshore, business owners often must comply with tax reporting requirements, undergo a financial audit, etc.

This allows you to receive full protection of capital and identity, tax benefits, security from foreign courts, access to international markets, etc.

These restrictions and current sanctions make it difficult to register offshore companies, but do not make the procedure impossible.
