The principality of Liechtenstein is a small country located between Austria and Switzerland in the Alps. This state is one of the smallest in the world and has commiteed to develop its financial sector in order to get a recognized position internationally and to be able to attract foreign investments. As such, Liechtenstein has become a successful offshore destination and a lot of international companies have there a branch in order to benefit from its very tax friendly policies. For instance, there are in Liechtenstein more companies registered then working people…
There are several reasons why to open in Liechtenstein an offshore bank account or to incorporate an offshore company. First of all, as Liechtenstein is no longer listed among the tax haven by the OECD, it is now very easy and convenient to use its offshore company worldwide. Also, the very low corporate profit tax rate is one of the biggest benefits of this offshore place. This profit tax rate is directly negotiable with the local tax administration and in any case will never exceed the official one of 18%. This system is based on the Swiss one. Finally, all major international banks have a branch in the principality and are offering exclusive and high efficiency financial products and services to a very few people.
