Gibraltar Offshore Company
Together with the highly reputable British Isles of Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man, the crown colony of Gibraltar belongs to High Disclosure Offshore Centres which provide for greater legal certainty. It is the only British offshore centre that is part of the European Union. It is the only British offshore centre that can and will increasingly be able to provide financial institutions with passporting rights and access to the single European market for financial services.
A number of factors make Gibraltar attractive for offshore business conduct; good geographical location and bilingual (English and Spanish) territory; cost effectiveness and attractive fiscal regime for offshore investors; excellent reputation, stable government and special status within the European Union; excellent infrastructure and communications; favorable tax status for offshore banks; no exchange controls.
Gibraltar also has an attractive trust regime. Trusts created by non-residents that generate overseas income are exempt from Gibraltar income tax.
