Offshore company formation – how to decide whether you need to incorporate abroad


Offshore company formation - how to decide whether you need to incorporate abroad

Business in the modern age is truly global. It’s an amazing consequence of the digital era where communications are so instantaneous that a company can function from almost anywhere on the planet.

That being said, there are sometimes geographical issues when forming a company in a certain area. If you do a large amount of business abroad, or you have different trading needs than a UK limited company can offer – you might consider offshore company formation.

But how do you decide whether you need to incorporate abroad? Well, this little guide will make the process much simpler. Already decided? Choose an offshore company formation package now.

How Do I Decide Whether I Need To Incorporate Abroad?

The real question is, ‘Do I need to incorporate abroad?’. There are sometimes very practical reasons for forming an offshore company – for example:

  • Trading Overseas – Many companies which trade overseas have an offshore company for doing business in territories other than the UK.
  • Multinationals – If you’re a multinational business – then you’ve got to put down a base somewhere. As a result forming your company in a more flexible jurisdiction may be beneficial.
  • Regulations – There is often strong regulation in popular foreign economies which are appealing for UK business – particularly if your business has a need for things like confidentiality, asset protection, estate planning or foreign currency exchange.

It’s not just about saving tax, as there are very high rates of taxation in place for doing business in the UK, it’s also about practicality – if a substantial amount of your business occurs overseas then it makes sense to form abroad.
