For many wealthy families and individuals, trusts and corporate entities form an essential component of their estate and wealth management plan. Common reasons for establishing an offshore structure include: asset protection from unforeseen potential creditors or litigation; planning for the succession of property and wealth; and preserving privacy, particularly when kidnapping or violence is a concern.
We would be pleased to discuss your estate with you and your advisors.
Its extensive treaty network has made Barbados a favoured jurisdiction for holding non-financial assets such as intellectual property, closely held private company shares and real estate. Barbados also has a very favourable tax regime while being recognized on the OECD approved list of jurisdictions that have substantially internationally agreed tax standards.
Modern trust and company laws have made the Cayman Islands the leading jurisdiction for structures designed for international corporate and estate planning. The Cayman Islands does not impose direct taxes on its residents. There are no income, capital gains or probate taxes and distributions made to non-residents are free of any form of withholding tax.
