From the perspective of our business a “Structure” is designed to organise and handle special purposes for individuals and corporations. In most cases a legal entity with a special purpose, in combination with selected services and control mechanisms, is at the centre of such a structure. Our structures are setup for Corporations, Private Individuals and Family Offices and can be used for various purposes and registered in a wide range of jurisdictions.

What are the benefits from Structures?

Along with the underlying objectives, structures can provide multiple benefits to their owners. In general, the benefits can be categorised as financial, legal or personal.

Financial benefits are mainly cost or tax savings by using internationally established procedures and attractive double tax treaties between various jurisdictions, for example domicile/resident
distinctions or Intellectual Property (IP) boxes.

An example for a legal benefit could be using legal protection afforded by certain jurisdictions with stable political environments and resilient legal frameworks for company transactions. Furthermore, the use of existing legal shelters for protecting property or ensuring a favoured succession plan are benefits from certain structures.

Personal benefits range from privacy and asset protection to a broad variety of family office services.
