Here is how to link the pieces fit together : Everyday enthusiastic entrepreneurs and companies engaging in e-commerce are looking to established, well-regulated offshore jurisdictions for complete e-commerce solutions.
By establishing carefully your jurisdiction according to your needs, lightly regulated, low direct tax offshore jurisdictions, e-commerce companies are able to gain an enormous advantage over their onshore-based competitors. This advantage extends far beyond the tax savings. A number of offshore jurisdictions, recognizing that e-commerce is still very much a fledgling industry have adopted very favorable regulatory frameworks. They are designed to allow e-commerce to develop at its own rythm, driven and shaped by the needs and demands of the industry and market itself.
In addition tax and regulatory compliance costs are substantially reduced freeing up valuable (and often limited) resources and personnel to focus on developing the company's products and services.
Company Corporate Structuring : Offshore e-commerce is naturally more than just purchasing an IBC (international business company) in a distant island.It is not one off transaction anymore,but more and more businesspeople are using their offshore Company for their e-commerce engaging in international trade and commerce on a daily basis. These e- businesses need more than just an off-the-shelf company that pays its annual yearly registered agent's fees and government license. Very taylor-made planning and structuring comes as well (often using multi jurisdictional corporate vehicles) which takes into account not just the needs of its managers,members, directors, shareholders and investors,but that is designed to host all aspects of the business, from marketing to the hosting of the web-site, from payment solutions to banking, from fulfillment to customer care, and ultimately the distribution and repatriation of profits in the most tax efficient manner.
Control of Offshore Company Management : Critical to any regulatory effective offshore structure and tax situation is the question of management and control of the company. The most sophisticated e-commerce company will very likely expose itself to corporate and income taxes, in certain high tax onshore jurisdictions, unless the company is seen not just to be incorporated offshore but also, to a substantial degree, managed and controlled from the desired offshore jurisdiction. In other words,this means more than just offshore "nominee directors". It envisages people with the requisite visions,skills and knowledge making very real commercial decisions, on behalf of the company, from offshore. Luckily,most premier offshore jurisdictions have a wealth of professionals who are able to do just this for you. With the correct offshore partners, e-commerce companies can be effectively managed and controlled from offshore.
Offshore Hosting for your Company: Due to the currently tremendous uncertainty surrounding the tax and regulatory treatment of e-commerce,an important aspect in these contentious areas is that of web-site hosting. About whether a server or a web-site constitutes a permanent establishment much has been debated and written. When national and international revenue authorities will reach consensus on this is impossible to say. Whatever the outcome, hosting offshore has significant advantages. Possibly the biggest advantage is that it adds weight to the identity and credibility of the company as a legitimate offshore e-commerce business. Thesedays, a number of offshore jurisdictions offer now complete web-site hosting on a technical parity to that available onshore, at surprisingly competitive rates.
Offshore Payment Processing And Company Banking Solutions : If your e-company has to be regarded as truly offshore, it is necessary for the payment processing and banking solution to take place offshore. Added benefits as strengthening the identity of the business offshore, in many cases, of avoiding compliance with cumbersome onshore exchange controls and other fiscal and revenue regulations. As with offshore hosting, many reputable payment processors and banks are offering extremely competitive offshore solutions (multi-currency pricing ,same day settlement, reliable online banking and security features such as 1024 bit encryption).
