  2. What is an Offshore Company?

An offshore company refers to a company that operates out of the country where it is incorporated, meaning it cannot operate business in the jurisdiction of incorporation. There are several well-known offshore jurisdictions that operate as offshore financial centers in the world, they are namely the BVI (British Virgin Islands), the Cayman Islands, Bahamas, Mauritius, Seychelles, Saint Vincent & the Grenadines. Most offshore jurisdictions offer global entrepreneurs the opportunity to setup International Business Companies so they can offer their services with less regulatory requirements to comply or probably with more flexible rules on their operated business. For some businesses, operating on an offshore jurisdiction may increase their business profits due to more flexible tax regime on goods and services offered through the jurisdiction.

“Offshore” means that the owner of the company is not a resident nor physically present in that jurisdiction. The IBC (International Business Companies) can be operated from anywhere in the world. Corporate laws are not difficult to interpret as most of them are formalized in the English language, and most of the popular offshore jurisdictions are former British colonies, where the British legal and judicial system is still largely in place.

Main difference between an offshore company and your locally domiciled private limited company could be in the treatment on taxation and public benefits. With small annual running cost, a high degree of confidentiality, flexible policies on taxation, and no foreign exchange controls are differentiating characteristics between the offshore IBC versus the resident domiciled company.

Most offshore jurisdictions do not impose limitations on the applicant’s nationality and capital paid-up on the IBC. The offshore entity can be owned for the purpose of personal investment, or for starting a global-based business like consulting, import/export or a broker. The use of the IBC is meant for today’s global business person.

离岸公司,是指在公司注册地以外经营,不能在注册地经营的公司。世界上离岸金融中心如BVI、开曼、巴哈马、塞舌尔、圣文森特等群岛国家纷纷以法律手段制订并培育出一些特别宽松的经济区域,允许国际人士在其领土上成立一种国际业务公司,这些区域一般称为离岸管辖区或称为离岸司法管辖区。

“离岸”的含义是指投资人的公司注册在离岸管辖区,但投资人不用亲临当地,其业务运作可在世界各地的任何地方直接开展。著名的离岸管辖区有许多是前英属殖民地,如BVI、圣文森特、塞舌尔等群岛,因此这些地区在很大基础上保留了英国的法律体系和司法制度。离岸公司与一般有限公司相比,主要区别在税收上。没有任何税收,只收取少量的年度管理费,具有高度的保密性、减免税务负担、无外汇管制三大特点。

     不同国家的离岸公司注册基本相似,无国籍限制,且注册资本低,除了办理费用不同,在公司名称取名时也会有一些区别,需要根据注册当地的一些规定来定,随着岛群国家金融政策开放,越来越多的人选择注册。每个离岸公司注册地都有优点和缺点。想要了解更多离岸公司注册能协助您经营经纪和平台公司的信息,请咨询https://salesiq.zoho.com/signaturesupport.ls?widgetcode=4e57636a9498d7a5a595805fe23b264b47a6c4f01ce92b8655d6a1bf89956f80cbc7b27083b6bc9de10061a60124c36e&e=408b59d7fbbe43640dac57d5b490bb3cad691744572c14ee。
