Offshore Tax Planning

Make the most of being abroad.

Being Abroad

Living and working abroad can open the door to offshore tax planning opportunities that would not be available to you while residing in your home country. Today, as more professionals find themselves spending a significant part of their careers overseas, it is essential to make sure you are taking advantage of all the opportunities available to you.

Tax Neutral

One of the benefits of having offshore domiciled investments is the tax savings and tax management options they can provide. Offshore investing can mean that income from savings and investments can grow tax-free, depending on your country of residence and nationality. Also, there are potential tax savings when it comes to inheritance and capital gains taxes or death duties. Offshore strategies make it possible to manage the repatriation of your wealth efficiently when returning to your home country.

Offshore Jurisdictions

Having holdings offshore allows you to centralize your assets in one location, and manage and maintain those holdings while residing anywhere in the world. Many foreign nationals live and work for a time in countries with languages and banking practices that restrict their ability to effectively and safely manage their investments and wealth, making offshore centers a practical and ideal solution for their needs. Established offshore financial centers offer financial stability, strong regulation, and investor protection.
