THE CAYMAN'S

Just a quick 270 miles from Miami, the Commonwealth of the Cayman Islands is an independent country within the British Commonwealth of Nations. There are no income taxes, capital gains taxes, or corporate, estate, profit, sales, value added, gift, or inheritance taxes. There are also no taxation agreements with other countries and no tax treaty with the U.S.

A Bridgeway Offshore Company is everything you need to operate legally with complete Asset Protection. Offshore Protection is quick and very affordable.

TAKE STEPS TO LOWER YOUR TAXES

IncorporateCourts have ruled time and again that people can plan their affairs so as to pay the minimum amount of tax possible and the taxpayer may use any legal means to do so. Americans ventured into the world of offshore a bit late in the game, nearly forty years after the rest of the world had capitalized on the financial advantages of moving assets offshore. The fact is that it is still both legal and quite simple for U.S. citizens to shelter their wealth offshore and to accumulate tax-deferred profits.

Our accounting firm can handle your complete tax filing requirements and we will file the appropriate IRS forms with the Internal Revenue Service to make sure that you have reported all of your income abroad as is required of every U.S. citizen and U.S. corporate taxpayer.

The best way to protect your assets is not to own any...only if you own an asset is it vulnerable to attack.


SECRET SHARES PERMITTED

Stock certificates issued by an IBC may be redeemed by anyone who has them in his or her possession just like cash. The person who has possession of the shares of an IBC is legally the owner of the IBC. In addition to other safeguards, this makes it almost impossible for anyone to track down your ownership. It also means that when the shares are in someone else's possession, you can truthfully testify that you do not own the IBC or its assets. The shares of an IBC may be with or without par value. They may be registered, or they may be in the form of stock best suited to guarantee the owner's anonymity.

  • Bank Secrecy - The British Virgin and Cayman Islands, to name a few, prohibit the disclosure to a third party of information pertaining to a client's affairs without the client's express written permission under strict penalty of law.
  • Major Financial Center - The British Virgin and Cayman Islands are the largest offshore financial centers in the Caribbean, with more than 600 banks and trust companies, and the headquarters for branches and subsidiaries of many large, international financial organizations. There are no restrictions on the movement of investments, corporations, or trusts into or out of these regions.
  • Promote services and market goods world wide with virtually no restrictions using an International Business Company (IBC).
  • Be both a borrower and a lender. You may choose to borrow money from an IBC or be the mortgage holder on your house or any other real estate. The borrower can make payments directly to the offshore IBC bank account and deduct the interest as an expense. Your IBC can purchase and lease equipment to your domestic company making all lease payments tax deductible.
  • Purchase or lease real property outside the country of formation. Also lease personal property like automobiles, boats, office equipment, etc., allowing you to move these items out of your name for asset protection.
  • Operate as a trading company to set up an internet business offshore, advertise products on the web, take orders, and complete the fulfillment from the offshore locations.
  • Use your IBC as a marketing, consulting, legal, or financial services company rendering services to U.S. based businesses. Invoices from the IBC are submitted to your domestic corporation and are paid directly to the IBC's offshore bank accounts.
  • Issue multiple classes of stock with complete secrecy.
  • There is no requirement that any officer or director be a shareholder in the IBC and a nominee officer can be set up to open offshore IBC bank and stock brokerage accounts.
  • Another IBC may serve as an officer and director of an IBC.
  • Corporate books may be maintained outside the country in any place owners so choose.
  • NO taxes on any IBC if the corporation does not conduct business in the country of its incorporation, exclusive of banking or other financial transactions.

STOP BEING A TARGET FOR
MONEY-HUNGRY LAWYERS

Joel Johnson found himself under attack by several collection agencies who had succeeded in getting judgments against him and his partners in Federal Court. That U.S. federal judge had no power to seize the liquid assets of his IBC.


AN INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS COMPANY (IBC) IS THE ONLY CHOICE FOR MAXIMUM PROTECTION

For many people a Nevada LLC with three Nevada Trusts to will adequately protect their assets however, for those who desire or need the maximum in judgment-proof asset protection we recommend an International Business Company (IBC).

A GROWING FORM OF ASSET PROTECTION

An International Business Company (IBC) offers a corporate structure which is familiar and comfortable for business and professional people. Most IBCs will operate as a regular investment or trading company. It is possible, however, for a professional advisor to produce a "designer" corporation within the provisions of the Act. IBCs can be adapted so that they function as mutual funds, limited partnerships, limited liability companies, or charitable associations.



Case Story #4:
The New York Broker

Paul Winters was a successful investment banker in Manhattan. He quickly built up a large personal investment account but was worried over government interference and employment litigation due to some of his highly speculative decisions. Anything could go wrong.

He formed a Nevada Corporation, transferred his funds to Nevada, and then formed an International Business Company (IBC) and opened up brokerage and bank accounts in the Cayman Islands. He still had use of the funds and his IBC could easily make the same investments in the United States but now nothing was in his name. In addition, he transferred and re-titled all of his existing bank and brokerage accounts in New York into his offshore corporation. This allowed him the comfort of leaving funds in the United States while still having the ability to transfer his funds at a moments notice to 'safer waters.'

WHAT IF YOU ARE FACED WITH A LAWSUIT

What if you are faced with a lawsuit? Do not be fooled - even if you are innocent, that does not mean the courts are on your side. Jurors often side with the plaintiff who appears to need the funds in question rather than the defendant who they assume has money to spare.

Even a judge's own personal feelings or politics can put you in jeopardy. Read the following outrageous quote below:

"As long as I am allowed to redistribute wealth from out-of-state companies to injured in-state plaintiffs, I shall continue to do so. Not only is my sleep enhanced when I give someone else's money away, but so is my job security, because in-state plaintiffs, their families, and their friends will re-elect me."
- Chief Justice Richard Neely, West Virginia Supreme Court

If you act NOW it's not too late to shield your assets from plaintiffs and their attorneys. Clients are happy to learn that there is still a lot they can do to protect their assets.

JUDGMENT-PROOF YOUR ASSETS TO AVOID RUINOUS LAWSUITS

The first step in becoming judgment-proof is to get your assets out of your personal ownership. One of the best ways to do this is to transfer your money, investments, vehicles, property, and other assets into an LLC owned by an International Offshore LLC, also called an offshore company. This is a legal entity that you control. Lawyers for plaintiffs will only initiate litigation when they believe it will pay off, not against judgment-proof defendants. The best way of getting a plaintiff's lawyers to accept a token settlement is to convince the lawyers that your assets are truly beyond their reach outside of the U.S. When owned by a Nevada Company (LLC) and managed by a New Mexico LLC you have a powerful financial fortress for asset protection and total privacy.

By forming an International Business Company you create a legal entity to hold assets, do business and shelter the identity of the beneficial owners. None of the investigative agencies which help trial lawyers, ex-spouses, ex-business partners and creditors locate the wealth of the defendants they want to sue will be able to find your sheltered accounts and assets. This makes you a poor prospect for a lawsuit.

WITHOUT ASSET PROTECTION YOU COULD LOSE EVERYTHING

  • Nine out of ten lawsuits in the world are filed in the United States
  • If you own a business or practice a profession you have a one chance in three of being named a Defendant in a lawsuit in the next year, and it will only get worse. It is estimated that there are over 100,000 law school students in school right now.


Case Story #7:
Real Estate Owner

Sharon Baker was a real estate developer who, now being retired, had two rental properties in Colorado. Worried about the prevailing mortgage crisis, she formed two Colorado LLCs and an International Business Company.

She then transferred each property into her Colorado LLCs. Next, her two Colorado LLCs were transferred to by her IBC. However, before doing that, she formed a third LLC in Texas and placed recorded friendly liens on each property. Sharon transferred the ownership of the third LLC into the IBC making all three LLCs owned by an Offshore landowner.

Next, she opened a second IBC owned by her first IBC to hold her "H.Y.I.P.s (High Yielding Income Portfolios). Because of these highly speculative high risk investments, she did not want to mix her IBCs with high risk. Sharon was wise enough to protect her first IBC holding her safe investments.
