Tax Advantages and Anonymity

Strategic Importance of Offshore Business

If you mainly do business in your home country, the importance of your local bank account may not be a priority. This is often considered secondary as long as you do not operate internationally.

As soon as business goes beyond national borders, you are often operating offshore. An offshore company is a legal entity that is registered in a country where it has little or no economic activity. These countries, often referred to as “offshore financial centers”, usually offer tax advantages and greater anonymity for the owners.

Demystifying the Offshore Perception: Geographical Facts, Not Moral Judgments

Offshore, however, often has an unpleasant connotation, as if there is something rotten that just won’t go away. But if you look at it closely, “offshore” simply means “in a country other than the one in which you live or work”. It’s a geographical description, not a moral one.

A good example is the US LLC. For Americans it is simply a form of company, but for others it means doing business “offshore”. So if a German or British owns a US LLC and has a bank account in the USA, he has both a foreign company and an offshore bank account – fully legal and not punishable on any way!

Untangling Offshore Banking

Clever Tax Avoidance Instead of Hasty Tax Evasion

Many see offshore banking as shady, as it is associated with tax evasion and money laundering. However, there is a big difference between tax evasion (illegal) and tax avoidance (legal means of reducing tax obligations).

Governments around the world have successfully painted a negative picture of offshore banking, ironically, while some of its biggest critics are secretly profiting from it.

Now we reveal to you the truth behind this other scam you’ve been sold.

The World Is Big. So Are Your Assets.

Maybe you think offshore banking is okay, but it just doesn’t fit your vibe right now.

“Offshore” doesn’t just refer to some remote island or something that is reserved exclusively for millionaires and billionaires.

It’s a question of perspective. What is inland for one person is “offshore” for another. And that alone makes it neither good nor bad. It is simply a business decision based on the needs and circumstances of the individual.

“Going offshore” is also a form of asset protection because it makes confiscating your money more challenging.

Why should everyone know what you own?

Keep your assets discreet and avoid prying eyes!

A variety of banks for individual needs: Why choosing the right bank is crucial and how diversification offers financial security!

Banks are not interchangeable – depending on your needs, one bank and its account offering may suit you better than another.

More is not necessarily better, but diversification is definitely worth it!

If you spread your money across bank accounts in different countries, it becomes more difficult for anyone to access it without your direct consent.

The option of holding accounts in different currencies offers additional flexibility and security.

Thanks to offshore banking, you can easily invest in foreign markets.

Well-maintained relationships between certain banks based on social, cultural and political proximity facilitate money transfers without arousing unnecessary mistrust.

Offshore Banking in the Light of the OECD

In recent years, the OECD – Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development – has increased international financial transparency in order to combat tax evasion. It has standardized the automatic exchange of information and listed non-cooperating tax havens. This has a significant impact on offshore banking. The OECD also emphasizes that companies should have genuine economic activities in their country of business, not just for tax reasons (Economic Substance Regulation).

With the right planning and advice, you can still benefit from the advantages of offshore banking while complying with all legal and tax requirements.

So there is no need to shy away from it. What counts is the correct and informed approach in order to act in a legal and tax-optimized manner.

So, is it still worth going abroad?

Transparency and Compliance

The days of “black money” are over. Offshore banks have strict KYC (Know Your Customer) and AML (Anti Money Laundering) processes. This means that customers must provide detailed information about their financial activities.

These regulations require foreign banks to share information about their account holders:

  • CRS: Common Reporting Standards
    • Multilateral exchange of information between countries
    • Current accounts, savings accounts, custody accounts, accounts of foundations and trusts, accounts of companies with predominantly passive income, etc.
  • FATCA: Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (exchange of information with the USA)
    • All foreign financial institutions (FFIs) must report the assets and identity of US persons
  • TIEAs: Tax Information Exchange Agreements
    • Individually negotiated bilateral agreement between countries
    • Primarily concluded by high-tax countries with each other and with tax havens
  • DTAs: Double Taxation Agreements
    • They regulate how much of a certain type of tax each country can levy

So is it still worth going abroad? Absolutely. Even though absolute secrecy may be a thing of the past, the benefits of asset diversification, protection and global financial opportunities absolutely remain.

All Is Not Lost Yet

There Is a Legal Escape Route Everywhere

  • “Tax haven” USA: For non-US citizens, the USA is indeed a tax haven. The USA has not signed the CRS (Common Reporting Standard), which means that it is not obliged to disclose information on bank accounts of non-US citizens to other countries.
  • No CRS exchange of existing business accounts under USD 250k: Existing accounts with a balance of less than USD 250,000 are often exempt from CRS reporting requirements.
  • Account balance is only exchanged on the reporting date: Only the balance on the reporting date (usually December 31) is exchanged. This means that financial movements that take place after this date are not reported in the current year.
