I'm interested in acquiring an off-the-shelf offshore company, and wondered if any of our Arrse tycoons had any particular recommendations, or can share their advice about using such an entity? I have a number of uses in mind for the entity: 1. I'm probably going to have to do some self-employed interim management, and thus will inevitably have to set up at least a UK limited company. Although I'll be initially working and invoicing in UK, the medium term aim is to get the heck out of Dodge and move/work overseas asap. It would be handy not to have to wind up a UK entity, but simply use the continuity of an offshore entity; 2. In the medium term, I want to start a business in Russia. The optimum way to do this happens to be to open a "representative office" or "branch office" of an overseas entity (more flexibility and exchange-movement freedom than using a local "Ltd" company); 3. I wish to place an asset (my old man's Spanish house) into a non-Spanish entity for estate planning purposes - this provides a cleaner solution to the hellish Spanish personal inheritance laws (or lack of...). I'm not at the tycoon end of the wealth scale, so was really interested in hearing about any reasonably economical "packages" that anyone has come across or uses themselves - i.e. an off-the-shelf with the option of local administration & host country tax returns, etc. Any ideas, or will this thread produce the deafening silence that most of my missives generate....?
