Offshore Trusts and Trustee Services
What is a trust? It is an arrangement by which property is transferred from one person (the Settlor) to another person (the Trustee) who holds the property for the benefit of specific people (the Beneficiaries). The terms and conditions under which the Trustees hold the trust assets are set out in a Trust Deed which also outlines the rights of the Beneficiaries.
Before deciding to set up an offshore trust it is important that you obtain advice and guidance from an experienced consultancy firm to ensure that you create the most suitable trust in the most appropriate jurisdiction to meet your requirements.
Advantages of an Offshore Trust:
An effective way to protect ones assets is by creating a Trust., since any assets transferred to a trust are normally no longer considered to be part of the Settlor’s property.
By creating an offshore trust the burden of property ownership is shifted onto the trustee. At the same time the benefit of the property, remains with the beneficiaries.
When a trust is registered in an offshore jurisdiction where the residents of that jurisdiction are excluded from receiving benefit from the offshore trust, then no local taxes are applicable to the assets and income of that trust.
The assets which can be placed into a trust can include anything which can be legally transferred, like:
- Bank deposits
- Property (real or intellectual)
- Life assurance policies issued on the life of the Settlor
An offshore trust that is set up and managed in the right way could lead to savings in taxes (income tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax) .
- Recognised in all common law jurisdictions
- Can be tailored to specific needs.
