Did you know that most offshore companies or IBC's are not allowed to trade in the country it has been registered in? For example, if you incorporate a Seychelles International Business Company then the company cannot supply services or goods in the Seychelles itself. Hence the term 'offshore'.
This could cause an issue if you are personally resident in a country where some of the business activities take place. For example, if any of the trading is carried out in the home country of the individuals who control the Company (Directors/Shareholders), then the authorities, could question the actual 'base', 'controlling mind' or 'transactional' activities of the IBC. Even though an offshore company is registered 'offshore' it does not mean it can avoid being scrutinized by the authorities. We always recommend that you seek seperate legal tax advice from a reputable Accountant or Tax advisor prior to purchasing any Company.
In certain business conditions we advise for your offshore company to have more than its registered office address in the country of its original incorporation.
