A simple setup with an acceptable minimum of services. Main advantages: low cost and direct operation. Main disadvantage: you will be seen running the offshore company from your own home. (Hint: Your domestic government may not like it.)

This package is designed for those lucky individuals, who live and work in a country where they can afford to be seen as directly owning and managing their own offshore company. This setup presumes a direct, hands-on operation of the IBC by the company owner. (!) Note - if you live in, or bear a passport of a high-tax country with an aggressive and efficient tax revenue service , this setup may be unsuitable for you.

The annual administration fees for this package, starting from the second year: $850. This includes the $350 BVI government, mandatory registered agent service and compliance fee for KYC review and update.


(!) The bank account is not included in this package. We recognize that many clients will prefer to open bank accounts with their own bankers, in geographical proximity to their area of operation. If required, our professional fee for a bank account introduction starts at $925. A number of selected offshore banks is available.

A comprehensive, "bullet-proof" package. It includes our in-house professional directorship, secretarial and business administration service, plus the shareholding service for enhanced confidentiality. The business administration service includes a BVI street address and fax number for the company, handling of commercial documents and correspondence, and a basic consultation for one year.

This package comprehensively deals with the most crucial tax planning question: "by whom, and from where is the company actually managed?"

In this setup, the company can demonstrate that it operates "at arm´s length" from its actual owner – as opposed to being technically operated from the owners´ home. This package is designed for the most demanding business engagements - for those clients, who can not afford to cut corners.

The annual management fee for this package is $2150, starting from the 2nd year. This includes the $350 government annual license fee, registered agent, compliance fee for KYC review and update, licensed director, shareholder and secretary, business administration services and basic consultation for 12 months.

Many choose to incorporate an offshore company which subsequently is owned by a foundation. Here the Belize foundation would be used to hold shares in a BVI BC. This way one can get the protection and continuity offered by the foundation and in the same time - engage in commercial activities. Useful to know, that Belize Foundation can be established having charitable or non-charitable purposes.

Why Foundation not Trust?
There are rather similar functions and reasons for establishing a Foundation or a Trust, the difference is the legal structure. The main difference is that Trusts historically originate from common law countries, e.g., England, USA and India, therefore are mainly used by these countries. While Foundation is a product predominant and understandable by the Civil law countries, e.g., France, Germany, Russia, Spain. In reality one can even say, allegorically, that Foundations are Trusts for the countries who do not understand Trusts.

For more complex structures, additional Belize, Seychelles or BVI companies can be formed under the same Foundation at additional fee.
