International tax planning

"Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as
possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which best pays the
treasury. There is not even a patriotic duty to increase one's taxes.
Over and over again the Courts have said that there is nothing sinister
in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everyone
does it, rich and poor alike and all do right, for nobody owes any
public duty to pay more than the law demands."

Quote by: Learned Hand (1872-1961), Judge, U. S. Court of Appeals

Indeed, there is no obligation on individuals or corporations to structure their affairs in a way that will maximise their exposure to taxation. International tax planning is lawful. The use of structures to minimise taxation in cross-border transactions or taxation associated with trading in foreign-held assets is not only commonplace nowadays, but also continues to increase in popularity as new and less regulated economic markets emerge. An estimated 40% of global commerce is transacted in the offshore world.

Incorporate in Estonia creates structures that optimise available opportunities to minimise taxation by using Estonian companies. If you are looking to expand the geographical area of your business operations in an efficient tax manner and/or looking into professional international tax planning please contact us for more information.

The case studies provide some insight into how Estonian companies can be used to structure your affairs so as to minimise taxation and maximise your assets.
