Fiduciary management is an approach to asset management that involves an asset owner appointing a third party to manage the total or partial assets of the asset owner on an integrated basis through a combination of advisory and delegated investment services, with a view to achieving the asset owner's overall investment objectives. In principle, the model can be applied to the investments of any asset owner.
Large international companies have always been striving to structure their business in a tax-efficient way. They can allow themselves expensive lawyers and tax consultants who help them to build multinational structures that expand across many jurisdictions.
For small and mid-sized companies the monetary and psychic costs of incorporating and running a business in low-tax jurisdictions have been much more burdensome, often too high to be compensated by achieved tax savings. Today’s growing globalization, increasing trade, high domestic taxation levels and availability of relatively cheap low-tax jurisdictions makes offshoring a viable and interesting option also for small and mid-sized companies.
However, with increasing alertness of tax authorities, it has in recent years become ever more difficult for companies incorporated in offshore jurisdictions to trade with on-shore companies. In many developed countries, tax authorities do not even allow or recognize payments remitted to companies based in offshore tax havens. This reflects the opinion that anyone entering into a transaction with an offshore company is not doing so out of genuine commercial need, but solely for reasons of tax mitigation - if not tax evasion.
Even though the image of an offshore company has taken such a battering over the years, this does not mean that an offshore company is all but useless for the international entrepreneur.
