What is an Offshore Company?
An offshore company is a business that is incorporated with the sole purpose of having its operations in a country different from where it is registered/where its directors reside/ where the main stakeholders and beneficiaries reside. An offshore company can also refer to a division of a corporate group that engages foreign manufacturers or foreign business services as part of its mode of operation. Although there are many misconceptions about offshore companies with many thinking that these are affiliated with illegal trading activities, this is often a false illusion. In fact some of the biggest companies in the world are legally involved in some semblance of offshore operations. This kind of operations are legal as long as a business adheres to regulations of the relevant jurisdiction. An offshore company operates on the basis that it can act independently without stringent stifling control measures.
How an Offshore Company Can Be Used
If you are a start-up running on a shoe string budget and therefore need to cut off budgetary demands. By setting up an offshore company a business will reduce tax obligation, lower registration costs and reduce operating costs.
A tax-free entity will help your business to grow if you want to conceal the financial information or want to conceal the details of company’s directors and shareholders.
Another necessity of an offshore company is when you have the intention of going global or you have a large foreign consumer base. When most of your customers are not based within your parent company then it is a sound business idea to register in the foreign country where they are based. This will help you to build credible business ties and establish reliable business relationships in countries where you have vested interests.
If your home country is politically unstable or the government has too many restrictions on the type of business you are dealing with. There are still many countries that do not fully support some industries. In such a case it is necessary to register your business in a country that supports all your business operation. This gives an entrepreneur an easy time running a business by reducing government interruption. If your parent country is politically unstable then it is only logical that you consider going offshore to protect your business interests.
If your enterprise is an online business then it is best that you set it up as an offshore company. An online business is a virtual set up that is not subject to geographical location. Therefore, there is no logical reason to be limited to a single geographical location that is disadvantageous to the growth of your business. Consider making your online business an offshore company so that you can build streams of income from foreign countries. Income streams from foreign countries are particularly necessary when your home country suffers rampant inflation. An income stream from a strong overseas currency keeps your online business relatively stable.
Setting up an a tax-free corporation comes in handy if your business is venturing into new markets that have increased territorial taxation. By registering an affiliate of your business in such a foreign territory, you will be able to cut down on territorial taxation costs and other territorial business regulations which countries use to protect local entrepreneurships. By being registered in the foreign destination that you are attempting to venture into, you are in essence showing a government your seriousness as an investor. This will ensure you are accorded with fair treatment.
