Tax liabilities


Offshore Universe endeavours to deliver the most tax efficient structures to our clients. Tax liabilities incurred by most offshore companies is usually zero, however subject to the jurisdiction tax laws (please refer to the Jurisdiction pages for specific tax information).


Tax Planning
Offshore Universe’s tax advisors can help companies structure a plan to reduce and or exempt liability over particular taxes.

  • Liability for income tax in the UK will apply unless an individual/company holds non-residential or non-domicile UK status and or legitimate commercial reasons behind company formation offshore without the intention of avoiding tax (S720 ITA regulation governs the exemptions regarding income tax liability).
  • Liability for capital gain tax is set out in S13 TCGA and S731 ITA.
  • Exemption from inheritance tax is dependent on domicile status. A non-domiciliary will be exempt from UK inheritance tax provided they are not in breach of the 17 year occupancy rule. 

Filing Annual returns to Tax Authorities


Dependent on the respective jurisdiction, there may be requirements to file an annual return of profits earned by the company to the jurisdiction’s Tax Authorities. 

These may be accessible on public record, but are usually for the purpose of ensuring that all trade activity has taken place outside of the company jurisdiction.
