Owning Property in an Offshore Company

There are so many different things that offshore companies have to offer that it can almost be overwhelming at times. Many wonder why they should have property in their off shore company- what is all the fuss about? What are the benefits associated with it?


Offshore companies have the ability to handle many different types of property transactions. Real Estate is something that is especially suited for offshore companies. Ownership is extremely simplified and it is a great form of assets protection because it offers a buffer between the owner and the company itself. This would help relieve any sense of personal liability. An example of this would be when a person is harmed while occupying a property.


If you were selling a property, the costs of transferring the property would be much lower because the ownership of the land is still with the company. The Government Land Registry would not be involved so the share transfer would also be much easier than the alternative.


One last thing that is helpful about having your property through an offshore company is that passing this property along to children or other family members becomes simplified as well. Trusts and wills can be set up and put into place using a third person party and they can make sure your wills and trusts are seen through, especially it comes to your property and other assets.

Using Offshore Companies for Trusts

There are many reasons why people would consider using an offshore company for trusts. Two of the biggest advantages are reduced tax and increased confidentiality. Offshore companies in general are flexible, so they can be integrated into many different business arrangements.

There could be some taxes of course, but many find that they get a sizable tax break on their trusts when they take advantage of offshore jurisdictions. You will always want to make sure that you’re well educated of the process and decisions, particularly when it involves another country that you may or may not know all the laws of.

When it comes to having a trust, you want to ensure that no matter what it is you are protecting (valuables, assets, shares of a company), you are leaving it with someone you trust, and who knows the business well. The advantages of someone having property or shares of a company outside of their own county are simple: there would be many legal fees and publicity that would be avoided.

If you have property overseas, there are many difficulties and expenses that can be avoided if you were to use an offshore company to hold the title. Not to mention, if the property were to be sold in the future engaging in a company like First Anguilla Trust would make it much easier.
