 What kind of documentation will I have to provide?

As per our activity and the regulations which apply to it, we will conduct a complete personal identification (Certified copy of your passport or National ID Card and recent proof of home address required) to confirm your correct details.

Moreover, to conduct the business in a professional way, we will need to understand exactly what we are invoicing on your behalf, which means, we will need an exact description of all services the final client (the one that we invoice) is receiving for this price.

If we invoice a European company, we will need to know its intra-EC VAT number. As a result, invoices will be zero rated as defined by European regulations.

We know our clients personally and want to offer the best services in a 100% confidential way. All information that we retain concerning you or your clients is treated as confidential, and all of our staff are trained data protection law.

 Should I include these expatriated funds on my tax return?

We encourage our clients to act in accordance with their local fiscal legislation. All funds which are used for a personal benefit should be included in the annual tax return.

Nevertheless, in the case of a corporate bank account, all these funds belong to the company (which will be registered in a Tax free or low tax country). In this case, there is no requirement for you to make a declaration in your home country.

Of course, international cards, prepaid cards, and anonymous debit cards provided by the financial industry suggest that not all clients declare these funds! Who knows? (Anonymous card, Swiss bank accounts, Nominee Director and Shareholders, Bearer share certificates…) Everything has been thought to help you to enjoy your tax free income!

 What kind of company will invoice my clients?

It depends on your clients' country of residence. For example, for all European countries (except for United Kingdom) the invoice will be issued by an English Limited company in good standing with working staff, VAT number, annual returns made to Companies' House and Inland Revenue each year, paying taxes in England and able to provide your clients with an English taxation certificate.

Where the services for which the final client will be invoiced are provided in the UK, invoices will be issued from another European Country, or a country outside the EU where appropriate.

 Why should I use your services instead of working direct with my offshore company?

The reason is simple. If your client is outside of Europe, he might accept an invoice from your offshore company, and pay this invoice to an offshore bank account.

Unfortunately, many clients will not accept an invoice from a company established in a tax privileged jurisdiction. Most of the European countries, to avoid tax evasion, apply automatic tax on payments made for a beneficiary registered in a tax free or low-tax offshore location. Where this is the case, the benefit of the low or zero tax rate is lost.

This is precisely why it is beneficial to have a European intermediary to participate in your commercial transactions, facilitating tax free invoicing.

It is increasingly common for European companies to contract and work with UK suppliers. The result is a European commercial relationship, allowing tax free factoring thanks to the Agency Law, a major part of the Common Law which regulates the law of all Commonwealth countries.

 What happens if you exceed the initial budget of 25,000 EUR during the year?

If you need to invoice your customers through our services for less than 25,000.00 euros a year, then you do not require your own Offshore company. We can suggest a solution customized to these specific needs.

However, from the moment the amount exceeds 25,000 €, it becomes advantageous to have your company based outside EU. You can change from one option to the other whenever you require during the year. However, the expenses incurred in the set up of the offshore company and any other related fees must be paid and the initial fees will not be refunded. Although we don't recommend it for higher value clients, you can also continue to use the initial scheme. In this case you should be aware that the percentage charged for our fees will increase up to 35 %.
