Corporate Tax Residency
Residency governs the jurisdiction for regulation and taxation. Needless to say, location independent professionals, solo entrepreneurs, international consultants, small businesses and others operating in a virtual or cross-border setting seek the best location to manage their personal and business life. These days, the opportunities for personal and corporate establishment are endless. However, corporate tax residency may bring unfair competitive advantages and are thus covered with a layer of codes of conduct and responsibilities.
Although both corporate tax residency and personal tax residency impose tax on income, there is a crucial difference between these two assessments. This distinction finds its justification in the legal personality of the individual and the corporation. Many criticasters fail to recognize the difference between corporate income tax and personal income tax since they consider all taxes identical. To avoid public pressure and private scrutiny the corporate tax residency of a Seychelles offshore company or International Business Corporation (IBC) must be obvious.
Seychelles offshore companies and IBC’s are exempted from the double tax treaties the Republic entered into with other jurisdictions. As such, their position in the Republic must be strong and evident, whilst refraining from the supply of local commercial activities. Local substance and presence is connected with the place of effective management emphasized by the jurisdiction of incorporation. This means that Seychelles offshore companies and IBC’s must put sufficient effort in their local establishment if they wish to maximize the opportunities of the jurisdiction and avoid foreign pressure.
Corporate tax residency in the Seychelles provides for several corporate advantages that help businesses and their owners to focus on building and growing a stable corporation instead of complying with tedious administration and pesky regulation. To qualify for corporate tax residency whilst satisfying foreign authorities, beneficiaries must structure their business accordingly. The establishment of a Seychelles offshore company is therefore more than just the incorporation of the company.
The rules of corporate establishment in offshore financial centers have developed over time. Efforts to minimize abuse and mitigate risk were forced upon the Republic of the Seychelles. These days, international and offshore incorporation requires business planning, regulatory compliance and structural maintenance to utilize the advantages of the jurisdictions at the axis of international and cross-border business activities.
