Offshore Trusts

Offshore Trusts are registered in offshore tax havens. These trusts are similar to normal trusts but they have the advantage of being tax free entities since there are registered in offshore tax havens. An offshore trust can be regarded as a move in which an individual places assets in the care of a trustee. The trustee becomes the person responsible for the assets and has the obligation to distribute these assets to the beneficiaries according to the terms of the offshore trusts. Offshore trusts can be registered in many offshore jurisdictions around the world; Dominica, St Kitts and Nevis, Seychelles, British Virgin Islands, Mauritius, Seychelles, Belize and many other offshore tax havens.

For the registration of offshore trusts the following parties are involved; the settlor, the trustee and the beneficiaries. The Settlor who is also called the Grantor is the person who wants to form the offshore trust and transfers assets to the trustee. The trustee is the person who manages the assets of the offshore trust. By accepting the assets from the settlor this person becomes the legal guardian of the assets. The trustee is also responsible for distributing any assets in the offshore trust to the beneficiaries and this is done according to the provisions of the offshore trusts. The beneficiaries inherit ant assets placed in the offshore trusts.

Offshore trusts are formed in the offshore tax havens for many reasons. The most popular reason or forming offshore trusts is for the asset protection which they provide for clients. All assets in a trust belong to a trust and these assets are protected by offshore legislation in the offshore jurisdiction. Offshore trusts are a great instrument to be considered for tax planning. Offshore trusts are tax free entities and will not pay any local taxes on incomes and other assets which are owned outside of the jurisdiction of incorporation. Offshore trusts are ideal because they can hold any type of asset including real estate, stocks and bonds, intellectual property, and other types of assets.

Offshore trusts are perfect for protecting wealth from forced heirship. The assets ion the offshore trust will be managed by the trustee who has instructions of how the assets should be distributed and when they should be distributed. An offshore trust can be used as a will and this will ensure the assets are shared according to the according to the wishes of the person(s) who formed the offshore trust.

For formation or incorporation of offshore trusts a registered agent has to be employ in some offshore jurisdictions. The registration of an offshore trust requires that a trustee be appointed and the beneficiaries of the trust are clearly determined. Offshore trust registration is not costly and the price for this may differ slightly in the different offshore tax havens. When registered an offshore trust may not engage in trading or other such business operations but may engage in non commercial activities as long as these actions are beneficial to the offshore trust beneficiaries.
