Isle of Man – New Manx Vehicle

The Isle of Man New Manx Vehicle (“NMV”) was introduced in 2006 to provide a structure that was similar in many ways to companies being offered in other jurisdictions. The NMV introduced a simpler and more streamlined company for ease of use with both international business and wealth management.

Attractive characteristics of the NMV include:

  • Minimum of one Director (and this may be a Corporate Director)
  • Simpler filing requirements
  • Relaxed accounting requirements for the distribution of dividends

This allows the Isle of Man NMV a greater flexibility for International trade and allows for a simple accounting test for the distribution of profits to the owners of the company.

The benefits of an Isle of Man NMV include:

Zero corporation tax – profits on a company are taxed at 0% (banking and insurance business are taxed at 10%).

Zero capital gains tax – on the sale of the holdings no tax will be paid on the capital gain.

Zero inheritance tax – property held within an Isle of Man company will not pay any inheritance tax in the estate of the ultimate owner.

Zero stamp duty – in certain cases stamp duties on the transfer of the property/holdings can also be mitigated.

VAT registration – an Isle of Man company can register for VAT for EU trade and sales.

The identity of the beneficial owner may remain confidential through the use of a corporate shareholder which holds the shares under declaration of Trust for the beneficial owner. There is no withholding tax on payment of dividends to shareholders.

The Isle of Man has a first class reputation as a well regulated international business and finance centre and is easily accessible from London and Dublin.
