There are a number of offshore possibilities afforded to individuals and companies looking to internationalize. Offshore Protection offers a wide range of possibilities that helps this transitioning process depending upon your specific needs.
Account Signatory Services
Our offices and staff can act as third-party signatory's on behalf of your company. This enables concerned parties to remain off-the-books. Through third party signatory powers we are able to fulfill duties through the appointment of Nominee Director's and Owners that act on your behalf.
For most people our recommendation for ultimate asset protection and tax efficiency is that with any structure you be neither manager, beneficiary, stockholder, officer or trustee - in other words it must be totally removed from any link to the corporate structure. However, many countries' tax authorities impose tough sanctions on those who do not disclose their signatory authority on foreign bank accounts. To disclose the details of such accounts and give up the very financial privacy that you are seeking, obviously makes little sense. Hence nominating a third party professional to act as signatory, who is not subject to such reporting requirements, is a solution. For more information refer to our Account Signatory Services.
Mail Forwarding Services
Our offices in Panama can act as a mail receiving and forwarding service. As most offshore company formation requires some form of office registration, secretary, or meetings, our offices can be used as hub for your offshore office.
In order to complement the proper establishment of their corporate offshore identity, our clients usually like to establish an efficient mail forwarding service with both a physical address for the receipt of packages sent by courier services such as DHL and Fedex, as well as a Post Office Box for receipt of mail. For more information refer to Mail Receiving and Forwarding.
Private Annuity Contracts
Private Annuity Contracts represent a contract that comes from a sale of an asset resulting in a periodic payment, or annuity payments, which are made to the receiver of the annuity. These payments may be deferred as long as the Annuitant wishes which can be used together with appropriate offshore estate-planning tools transferred wealth can be given to heir or beneficiaries without paying estate tax. For more information go to Private Annuity Contracts.
Professional Management Services
This provides you with Professional Management of your Offshore Company through the use of Nominee Directors that act as managers/shareholders/owners of the corporate entity keeping your personal details off the books.
Appointing a professional management firm that will manage your non-controlled corporation provides you with the maximum ease and protection. Professional managers appoint themselves as directors eliminating your exposure as a director of the IBC ensuring the safety and security of the corporate assets.
This may be important because the mere fact of being an officer may offer the appearance that you in reality still control the assets and thereby still retain a beneficial interest in them. For more information refer to Offshore Professional Management.
Re-invoicing is used through intermediary corporations that are established in low tax environments that enables onshore business to benefit from tax advantages.
Re-invoicing uses an offshore company to act as an third party between an onshore business and its customers that live outside ones country of residence. The profits of this intermediary corporation and the onshore business allow the accumulation of profits to be accrued offshore without being forced to pay capital gain or income taxes as long as the assets remain offshore. For more information go to Re-invoicing Services.
