Offshore Company
 
Offshore Company is a company incorporated outside the country of its main business activities and/or the place of residence of its principals, namely directors, shareholders and beneficial owners. Again, this is usually done to attain certain legal, financial or tax benefits. As most other companies, an offshore company may enter into contracts, purchase property, goods and services, open bank accounts, etc.

Many individuals and corporations who use offshore companies and planning aspire to:

Reduce tax - Protect assets
Manage risk - Enhance assets
Maintain privacy - Reduce costs

An offshore corporation is a term that generally refers to a company incorporated under special legislation in one of the world's offshore financial centres. Offshore corporate legislation normally targets non-residents and permits them to form, own and operate companies that have broad powers, are easy to administer and, above all, are subject to minimal or even zero taxation.

Thus, for every business looking for ways to lessen their taxation burden, the best & safest option is to setup an offshore company. A similar kind of tax shelter is provided by the offshore banking. However, irrespective of whether you choose to setup an offshore company or bank offshore, take care to receive professional aid so that the legal procedures of the respective jurisdiction can be carried out smoothly.

In general, the reasons for using offshore companies for business are:

Free remittance of profits - Access to top-rated jurisdictions
Security of property rights - Accessing low cost areas
Access to tax treaties - Banking privacy
Availability of offshore experts - Access to foreign insurance
Customs and duty exemptions - Exchange convertibility
Enhanced privacy - Government cooperation
Fair treatment - Territorial taxation
Sanctity of contracts - Foreign investment inducements
Fewer restrictions - Tested legal systems
Higher yields and returns - Sophisticated banking facilities
The search for political stability - Reduced taxation

Benefits:

Minimise taxes

Double tax treaty planning in relation to dividends, interest and royalty payments.
Registering an offshore company can legally minimise the tax obligations of a business and this is often the primary reason for incorporating a business offshore. Non-resident companies are often tax exempt or enjoy low levels of taxation depending upon the country. However, corporate taxation matters can become very complicated and it is very important to be guided by an experienced professional. Ensuring that there is no conflict with the tax obligations in the country or jurisdictions where the business operates is essential.

Confidentiality

Non-resident companies, in some countries, are not required to publish financial information or the details of directors and shareholders. Most offshore financial jurisdictions will not reveal any of this information to any third party unless criminal or terrorist activities are suspected.

Reduced administration

The legal obligations of any directors or officers of an offshore company are often much less. The need for accounting, other staff or a physical office can also be overcome with cost-effective virtual office services – saving time and money.

Asset protection

For those with international business interests, an offshore company can be valuable as a vehicle for holding assets such as intellectual property or real estate investments.

Lower set up and maintenance costs

Even with increasing anti money-laundering measures being applied and enforced to block funding for terrorism and prevent the proceeds of criminal activities from being hidden, the process of setting up an offshore company can be relatively fast and simple. This can translate into lower costs in both the establishment and maintenance of an offshore company.

Lower capital requirement

Registering an offshore company will require minimal capital, usually less than what is required for an onshore registration. In certain jurisdictions there is in fact no capital needed for registration.

Setting up an offshore company does not have to be complicated and can provide many benefits for individuals or companies involved in business across international borders.
