The group of 80 islands in the South Pacific Ocean made it to the international “white list” members of countries by OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) in June 2011.

Gravity of the situation

Often, these law firms think foreign companies are half-silk, tax evasion is favored and mailbox companies are the leaders rather than the exception. This is true, however, only in some start-up agencies that do not have the necessary expertise. Self-proclaimed law firms that do not employ tax accountants or lawyers usually set up companies that are unlikely to operate legally. We set up and look after companies that can withstand tax audits and that are legally operated.

Do you have to live in the country where you start a company?

You can set up a company worldwide, as long as the respective country allows you as a foreigner to acquire shares in local companies or to act as a managing director. If this is not the case trustees can be used. For example, Cyprus allows every EU citizen to own and run a business. Nevertheless, trustees can be used for the purpose of identity protection. However, it is important that the management takes place locally, in the country in which the company is to be taxable. In addition, a permanent establishment must be set up. Without these, a major tax offices around the world do not recognize the company and in the worst case would require additional payment of corporate and business taxes plus late payment surcharges. We rent you a real office and set up a permanent establishment that meets all requirements beyond doubt.

Problematic Law firms: Secrecy is not regarded.

Some law firms bind customers with toggle contracts and exert pressure when the customer wants to close his company. If you are a client of a law firm that has established a legally flawed company, they can be blackmailed. Because in the case of a fiscal problem, law firms without a license are not bound by a duty of secrecy.

Migrating to a different law firm

We receive many inquiries from customers who already own a foreign company and are looking for a new law firm. The process of changing law firm is made often difficult on purpose. Therefore, we have developed a principle of trust. If you are not satisfied with us and want to change, you can do that at any time. The necessary documents (resignation letter), you receive from us standardized after founding. You are therefore protected against unexpected costs and you are free at any time to visit another law firm. So far we have not lost any customer to another law firm.

Privacy / Firm Location

Your accounting documents are kept safe with us. In addition, all electronic data is stored encrypted and accessible only by us, which are bound to a professional secrecy. All accounting records are also stored locally only. Neither authorities nor hackers are able to access this data.

No taxes?

There are quite a few locations in the world that do not charge taxes on companies or individuals, or only estimate a very low flat rate tax. But this can rarely be used without corresponding change of residence. If you are a resident of any major country, the relevant double taxation agreement is decisive. Providers who promise otherwise lead them to tax evasion, which in the case of discovery usually punishes severely. We advise against setting up companies in countries that have already been blacklisted by the OECD. The foundation is usually very cheap, but the tax consequences in your origin country can be devastating. Since the introduction of the automatic exchange of information between almost all major countries, an anonymous private account no longer exists.
