Product Description

Product Description

In this guide we look at the top offshore tax planning opportunities available for 2013 and how you can use them. 2013 changes to the CGT and income tax anti avoidance rules in particular bring increased opportunities to use offshore trading companies.

Some of the key benefits arise from using the UK company as a holding company to hold either foreign trading subsidiaries or setting up a foreign finance company. Using offshore trusts and directly held offshore companies can also be attractive in certain circumstances. In this guide we show you when.

Certain jurisdictions such as Switzerland, Cyprus, Mauritus and Singapore can be particularly attractive for UK residents looking to reduce UK taxes.
Anyone who is non-resident is in a very attractive position to avoid UK tax. We look at when and how to take advantage of non-resident status to reduce your taxes.

Topics covered include:

How to set up offshore subsidiaries tax efficiently

... and how to avoid the CFC rules

When and how to use an Offshore Finance Company

How to use offshore trusts to reduce UK income tax and CGT using Offshore Trusts

How Swiss companies can be used to trade in the EU tax efficiently

I won't lie; I have a lot of money. Keeping my money safe while avoiding the tax penalties of keeping money in my home country has become a large concern for me. I face a large tax rate by keeping my money in my homeland, and needed to find the best spots and loopholes possible to place this money.

Mr. Hadnum's titles on offshore investing and tax havens have been of great benefit to me, and reading "Offshore Tax Secrets 2013" provided me with a lot of great information for the new year.

As with any Kindle title, "Offshore Tax Secrets" was very simple to get to my iPad. I purchased the title electronically through Amazon, brought up the Amazon Kindle App on my iPad, and then refreshed. Those simple actions then brought up the title on my iPad, and I was reading within a few minutes.

Formatting and the layout of this book is excellent; much better than some other financial titles that I have read. Believe it or not, bad formatting can make a good title unreadable. "Offshore Tax Secrets" avoids this pitfall, and I was able to read this from (digital) cover to (digital) cover in about a day and a half.

I was never aware that I could use an offshore finance company to help lower my tax rate, and this ebook had a lot of great information that will take effect beginning in April of this year.

Of particular interest to me is the offshore trust. I want to be able to set these up for my family, providing a comfortable future for generations to come. Chapter five has this covered, and even explains the best best ways to avoid capital gains and income taxes when putting away for your grandkids.

When I first came into my money and began looking at investing, I never would have even considered having to deal with VAT taxes. Mr.
