The key features of a BVI offshore company are: Privacy and confidentiality; No minimum capital requirement; it does not need to file audited accounts; No taxation on foreign-earned income;

State of Delaware

The reason why so many people choose Delaware for their new corporation or Limited Liability Company is to protect their personal assets. Delaware has passed incorporation, limited liability company and tax laws that are favourable to all types of businesses.

A Belize offshore company is an ideal tax planning vehicle which can be used for a wide range of commercial activities including trading, share ownership in other companies, financial management, investment holding, leasing of other assets, real property ownership, ownership of a ship or yacht, provision of professional or other services, asset protection and confidentiality, transfer pricing, ownership of intellectual property and invoicing.

Marshall Islands

For companies not requiring a high profile, a Marshall Islands company provides a very cost-effective, flexible alternative. This type of company can be used as a holding company or an investment company, but is not particularly recommended for high profile trading companies seeking new clients due to the lack of public registers.
