Most common types of offshore company

There are four main types of business entities which can be registered as trading or holding offshore companies as following:

  • International business companies

    These companies are mostly available in tax haven jurisdictions. They are usually cheap to set up and benefit from special taxation regulations which allow them to trade with customers outside of their country while being tax exempt. Examples include theCaymand Islands, the British Virgin Islands;

  • Hybrid companies

    These companies are usually considered tax-resident but benefit from reduced or no corporate income tax. To access DTAAs, they must meet residency requirements, usually achieved through appointment of resident directors. Hybrid companies can be set up in Labuan, Mauritius, or Seychelles;

  • Non-resident companies

    In countries with a territorial tax system, companies controlled from overseas and do not conduct business within the country of registration, benefit from a legal exemption from corporate income tax. Such entities are usually an excellent choice for our clients who do not want to damage their reputation using a tax haven business entity. Examples of such jurisdictions are Singapore and Hong Kong;

  • Zero-tax companies

    these companies are LLCs incorporated in a country which does not implement corporate income tax. The UAE is an example of a jurisdiction providing for the registration of zero tax companies. However, such a business setup tends to be more challenging and costlier than the other 3 types of entities above.
