Tax planning & structuring is a vital part of international business. This includes where to locate your business, what type of company and, of course, residency.
We offer impartial structuring advice, which amongst other things includes the best choice of jurisdiction, tax considerations and residency options. If, for example, you form a company without a proper thought, you may find that it is not suitable for the intended purpose.

Likewise not all banks are happy with “Internet” business (selling from a website). All these points should be taken to consideration before making a decision.
The jurisdictions we offer range from trading companies in low tax countries to Freezone companies (generally tax free), through to typical IBCs (International Business Companies).

As the name suggests these are based in designated areas and usually free of company/corporation tax. Once set up, Freezones generally have minimum bureaucracy.
These offer zero tax, no VAT and are relatively low cost to form and run. IBCs are best suited for holding operations and discreet trading e.g. consultancy income.
