Registration and maintenance of foreign companies

Registration of Low-Tax Companies Abroad

With more than twenty years operating on the market, K.A.C. Group has registered thousands of companies around the world. Most of them were registered in low-tax jurisdictions, i.e. offshore zones, with a number of them now subject to restrictive measures through BEPS, MLI and CRS. However, they can perform their local functions as well:

  • Classic offshores: Reliable “protectors” of corporate rights, stocks and other assets in Ukraine, created on the basis of motivated actions of the State Fiscal Service (SFS) and regulatory authorities, from raiding actions. There are indispensable for registration of yachts and ships and form a reliable part of the tandem for the confidential ownership of a bank account in an offshore bank. For such cases, we offer the jurisdictions of Cyprus, Hong Kong, Malta, BVI, Belize, the Caymans, Panama.
  • Companies with preferential taxation: Such companies are not classic offshore companies, but they have the opportunity to reduce tax losses in a legal way. They may well be used as international business companies in export-import operations.

For example, companies with an LP legal form do not pay income tax (it is levied on their participants). We register such companies in Canada, England, Scotland, and Ireland.

What is more, K.A.C. Group is engaged in the registration of companies in countries where the distributed part of income tax in the form of dividends is taxed instead of income tax as a whole (it is planned to introduce a similar tax on withdrawn capital in Ukraine). There are three such countries with a zero tax rate in Europe: Estonia, Latvia, and Georgia.

We offer our clients European jurisdictions with a low tax rate on profits (Switzerland, Hungary, Bulgaria), or with the possibility of compensating a part of the tax paid (Malta).

Financial and managerial structures: First of all, these are holdings for keeping and managing assets in Ukraine and receiving passive income, the taxation procedure of which is regulated by relevant conventions between Ukraine and such countries as the Netherlands, Switzerland, England, Malta. For the purposes of confidential investment, regulation of relations with business partners and inheritance planning, we offer foundations and trusts in Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Jersey, Cayman Islands. This service is quite specific, and clients can get more detailed information at the K.A.C. Group office.

Important Trading Companies for International Business

As a rule, international business companies are actively involved in export-import operations in the role of trade partners. Until recently, they have been generally called “offshore companies”, regardless of their tax and resident status. With the active implementation of BEPS, MLI (anti-erosion of the tax base) plans and information exchanges, companies have difficulties opening bank accounts not only through due diligence (client identification). The key task is achieving compliance, and the main requirement is to link the company’s business to the country where its bank account is located. We offer a comprehensive product called “an international business company and a bank account in one jurisdiction” (with full achievement of compliance conditions) for export-import operations in the following regions:

Northern Europe – Estonia, Central Europe – Poland, Southern Europe – Hungary, Africa and Asia – Turkey. These countries are not included in any “black lists”, they do not have high tax rates, as well as double taxation avoidance treaties with Ukraine.
