Things to Consider when Designing The Offshore Strategy

by GWS Offshore Business Consultant & Management
Forming an offshore entity can be really effective for your business. It can lead to optimise your business performance and outcome in a better and more drastic way. Also, it will improve on your profitability while offering necessary protection of your assets.

  • Your Tax Residency Definitely Matters
There may be many popular beliefs, but incorporating an offshore entity will never slash your entire tax amount to zero. No, that will simply not happen.



  • The Implementation may not simple as it Sounds
See, there are several proceedings to follow when you are implanting an offshore company. A suitable strategy will prevent you from falling into unnecessary trouble. Say, such as, you are an Indian resident and you are trying to get incorporated in Seychelles. Will you be able to gain any kind of tax benefits? Probably not although there will be a certain level of asset protection and privacy to be expected. This kind of scenario happens because of CFC or Controlled Foreign Company Laws. However, if you are a country resident that follows CFC lays, profits being retained in your offshore venture may well be properly taxed and attributable although they may not yet be distributed.

If you notice properly, there are common scenarios when corporate tax residencies are not only deemed by where the companies are being incorporated but also by the place of their effective management status. Taking in context the above example, if you try to manage your Seychelles IBC from India, it may well be considered a residential act for tax proposals and would be subjected to Indian Corporate IT rate of around 25% (or whatever is applicable).



See, it is not only about offshore company formation that will reduce the burdens of your tax. Moreover, you must focus on the nature of the business that matters a lot when selecting the jurisdiction. If you fail to pick the correct jurisdiction as per your business type, it can lead to cause severe negative repercussions. Therefore, you must look for a suitable jurisdiction that would be tailor-made to handle your circumstances and the nature of the business. Remember, it can definitely make a mark difference to the scenario.

  • Making use of the Correct Strategies
Strategic implementations must be done in the correct way. Setting up a limited company in the British Virgin Islands can bring in a positive outcome if your business is offering professional services. See, international companies in the British Virgin Islands enjoy all types of tax exemption. There will not be a single penny to be invested for corporate tax payment purpose. Also, there are minimal reporting requirements. There is absolutely no need for filing any accounts and there will also be no public record to be maintained against directors and shareholders. So, the highest level of privacy is assured.



Also, the British Virgin Islands enjoy a reputed and trustworthy regulatory environment. Henceforth, the matters related to companies house and bank formation will be easier to handle. Banks from Singapore will be more than willing to offer their financial support to such offshore entities.
