Low tax offshore companies – Tax haven jurisdictions

Low-tax offshore entities, often associated with tax haven jurisdictions, encompass a variety of offshore structures that can be established in offshore centers or regions such as the British Virgin Islands, Belize, Seychelles or Cook Islands, among others.

Companies established in jurisdictions that offer both offshore and onshore company options may enjoy favorable tax regulations and special offshore company frameworks.

Mauritius and Hong Kong

Mauritius and Hong Kong, for instance, offer two distinct types of companies that are suitable for both offshore business operations and international tax planning.

Limited Liability Companies (LLCs), Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs), and Limited Partnerships (LPs) constitute a specialized category of businesses frequently employed for international business activities and tax planning. These entities offer the advantage of limited liability and exhibit partnership-like flow-through characteristics for tax purposes.

This arrangement entails the distribution of profits among members and partners in proportion to their respective ownership stakes. Importantly, if all members or partners are non-tax residents in the jurisdiction where the LLC, LLP, or LP company is registered, and no business activities take place within that country, neither the company nor its members or partners will be subject to taxation in the jurisdiction of the company’s establishment. Such entities are commonly recognized as “fiscally transparent,” with examples including US LLCs and UK LLPs.

Relevant types of Offshore Business Entities

After you’ve settled on an offshore jurisdiction that aligns with your unique requirements and desired advantages, the next step involves selecting the appropriate type of company which follows a similar decision-making process.

Prominent offshore jurisdictions for company formation typically offer options such as Corporations and Limited Liability Companies, among others. Depending on your specific business objectives, it may be suitable to opt for a single company or corporation, complemented by an additional legal instrument or bank account.

In certain scenarios, the establishment of bank accounts, trusts, and other structural components becomes essential to construct a comprehensive strategy tailored to your needs.

Below, you’ll find several examples and further details on the various types of offshore business entities:

Key Categories of Offshore Business Entities

The British Virgin Islands Offshore Companies, also known as Business Companies (BC), represent a well-regarded jurisdiction known for safeguarding asset ownership privacy within the company and providing the flexibility to transfer domicile. BVI BCs are exempt from local taxes and stamp duties, offering substantial privacy and confidentiality advantages. Additional insights into BVI Business Companies can be found on our website.

The Nevis Limited Liability Company (LLC) stands out as a premier choice for asset protection, surpassing the asset protection provisions found in many other jurisdictions’ corporate laws. This type of offshore company formation is highly recommended for those seeking to safeguard their assets and financial privacy. Notably, Nevis LLC law includes provisions that shield the assets held within the LLC from potential seizure in the event of a member’s legal dispute. For detailed information on the Nevis Limited Liability Company, please explore the relevant section on our website.

The Cook Islands International Company presents numerous advantages for asset protection and tax planning, making it one of the most sought-after jurisdictions globally. Key attributes include:

(a) Absence of a public registry for International Companies, with access to information requiring the Company’s permission. The Registrar retains only name and address details of Directors, while shareholder information is exclusively held at the company’s registered office (CIT).
(b) Imposition of significant penalties for confidentiality breaches.
(c) Exceptions to privacy provisions apply in cases of severe criminal activity.

Belize Offshore International Business Companies are favored structures due to the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of this jurisdiction. Belize, being the sole English-speaking country in Central America, offers a high degree of privacy and protection. In summary, the ideal Offshore Structure should encompass:

• Anonymity
• Nominee services provided by law firms
• Highest level of privacy protection
• Limited liability without any mandatory paid-up capital requirement
• Legal tax exemption
• Absence of taxation on any form of income
• No accounting or reporting prerequisites
• Elimination of accountant expenses
• No auditing demands
• No stipulations regarding professional qualifications or financial standing
• International business operations feasibility

And more… At TBA, we combine professional counsel, global registration services, reasonable fees, tailored order processing, ongoing support, and expedited processing to cater to your needs.

Going offshore – quick answers

An ‘Offshore’ company refers to a corporation or Limited Liability Company (LLC) that has been registered in a jurisdiction different from the residence of its founders.

It is crucial to emphasize that there is no distinction between an offshore company and an LLC company as long as the entity is registered and operates in accordance with OECD regulations. Despite not being the government’s preferred choice, International Business Company Formation remains entirely legal.

What is an offshore company?

An offshore company or corporation shares the same fundamental characteristics as any other registered entity under the law, functioning as a legally recognized, distinct “entity” with limited liability. As such, this company possesses the ability to issue and sell shares, holds the right to engage in legal actions, be subject to lawsuits, and enjoys perpetual existence.

The International Business Company (IBC) stands as the most widely favored form of offshore corporation, primarily sought after for its asset protection and privacy attributes. Typically, an IBC operates as a tax-exempt entity, enabling it to conduct business globally, except within the jurisdiction where it was originally incorporated. Popular IBC jurisdictions encompass the British Virgin Islands, Belize, Nauru, and the Seychelles.

In addition to the conventional offshore hubs, several ‘onshore’ jurisdictions offer corporate structures that hold significant appeal for international users. These include examples such as the UK Limited Liability Partnership (LLP), US Limited Liability Company (LLC), UK Limited Companies, Hong Kong Limited Companies, and EU companies. These domestic structures hold particular value in the realm of international tax planning.

What are shelf companies?

Shelf companies are pre-established, unused corporations created to fulfill immediate client requirements. Our inventory includes a comprehensive list of more than 200 appropriately named companies that are readily available for immediate trading.

How long does it take to set up an offshore structure?

Setting Up an Offshore Structure International Business Companies can typically be established within two working days, provided all required client information is received.

What are the costs?

The fees associated with company formation, ongoing annual expenses, and administrative costs can vary significantly depending on the jurisdiction.

Where should I incorporate?

Choosing the Right Incorporation Location Most offshore jurisdictions do not impose foreign exchange controls and have introduced company legislation designed to accommodate a broad spectrum of international business needs. It is essential to select a jurisdiction that aligns with your specific corporate and personal objectives.

Is my privacy protected?

While we hold utmost respect for the confidentiality of our corporate clients, we are committed to conducting comprehensive due diligence on both our clients’ identities and the nature of their business activities. Our clients are required to disclose the purpose behind establishing an offshore entity and the intended business scope of the offshore entity. Furthermore, we are obligated to monitor and ensure that the activities of the offshore entity remain compliant with international regulations. To formalize this due diligence process, our clients are required to execute management agreements with TBA INCORPORATORS. This rigorous approach to due diligence benefits all parties involved.

Who will maintain the offshore structure?

We have established offices in most major financial centers and are fully equipped to handle a client’s company administration in compliance with corporate requirements. Additionally, we can facilitate accounting, auditing, and legal services, offer local management solutions, and assist clients in securing licenses from regulatory authorities.

How do I proceed?

To initiate the process, you can utilize our ordering facilities to provide instructions for establishing the desired solution and implementing administration and support services that align with your needs. Select the option that best suits your preferences.

Additionally, you have the option to engage with a TBA consultant by sharing some information about your requirements or the specific information you seek. A consultant proficient in your language will then reach out to you directly to engage in a discussion and establish the most suitable solution tailored to address the challenges of your unique situation.

What is the future of the offshore industry?

The Future of the Offshore Industry Since the events of 9/11, there has been an international crackdown on money laundering, resulting in a division within the offshore industry. This divide primarily separates jurisdictions that are eager to comply with international anti-money laundering standards from those that are less cooperative. Prominent organizations like the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) have played a crucial role in driving these initiatives. Established by the G-7 countries in 1989, the FATF is an inter-governmental body with the mission of developing and promoting policies at both national and international levels to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. As the FATF intensifies its efforts to exert international pressure, it will become increasingly challenging for less-regulated regimes to engage in business.

Another significant concern revolves around the exchange of information, which has gained prominence in recent times. The recently adopted EU Savings Tax Directive is poised to reshape the offshore industry, although the extent of its impact remains uncertain. Historically, no automatic exchange of information occurred in Europe unless concerns arose regarding illegal activities linked to a bank account. However, with the introduction of the EU Tax Directive, EU residents are likely to face the obligation to address these matters, either by paying withholding tax or consenting to information exchange.

In light of these developments, Hong Kong is set to become a more critical jurisdiction for tax planning. It stands as one of the few reputable and well-regulated “offshore” banking centers exempt from the new EU directive on automatic exchange of information and withholding tax. Moreover, Hong Kong should be a serious consideration for clients interested in registering an offshore company, as it operates on a “Territorial Basis.” Consequently, corporate tax is solely imposed on profits derived from business activities conducted within Hong Kong’s territory. Income originating elsewhere, even if remitted to Hong Kong, remains exempt from taxation.

Why and when should I use an offshore company?

• Facilitating international trade
• Managing portfolios of stocks, bonds, and cash
• Holding investments in subsidiary or associated companies
• Leveraging double taxation treaties
