What are Offshore Trusts and how to use them on your Company

However, Offshore Trusts are only one of the Trust services which are provided by the Chesterfield Group company, and other types of Trusts include life interest and purpose trusts as well as accumulation and maintenance trusts.

Furthermore, our company is able to aid with the contracting of staff, property acquisitions as well as with shipping, even yacht management and crew payroll services. However, before Offshore Trusts are set up, a number of factors need to be taken into account and before these factors can be considered, the term offshore formation must be clearly understood. Basically, an offshore company is a company that is created outside the jurisdiction of the business owner's country, and there are many reasons why business owners opt to create Offshore Trusts; however, primarily the reason for setting up an Offshore Trust is because of the business laws and tax laws that govern the country where the Offshore Trusts are set up. Most countries have come to realize and welcome the advantages which are brought in by foreign investment and to this end, they are more than happy to offer zero tax or no tax for the formation of Offshore Trusts. However, in addition to the tax savings which are enjoyed by Offshore Trusts, other benefits of an Offshore formation include risk management, a stable business climate and a political climate, asset protection, less red-tape and increased privacy for many business owners.
