As a general proposition to limit the chances of a nil (or low) tax Offshore Company being taxed onshore the Company needs to be (and be seen to be) managed and controlled from offshore.
For that to be achieved ideally the company should be seen to be carrying out core activities and making key decisions in a nil tax environment (ie“Offshore” preferably in the country of incorporation).
Hence the Director (and ideally the shareholder) should be resident offshore, board meetings should take place offshore, agreements should be signed from offshore and payments should be effected from (and finances should be managed from ) offshore.
With increased focus on Corporate Governance record keeping is also important. For the company to be seen to be managed from offshore you’ll also want to have all company records
(including statutory books) kept and maintained offshore including:
- The Share register
- The register of Directors
- Asset Register
- Register of charges
- And more
