An offshore Foundation is a separate legal entity (similar to Limited company) but with beneficiaries instead of shareholders. Assets (both movable and immoveable such as property, shares and money) can be donated to the Foundation by its Founder and becomes the legal property of the Foundation.
Incorporating a global offshore Foundation is ideal for family succession/ estate planning, asset protection and flexible taxation management. Foundations can be formed for many reasons, such as charitable, specific purpose or to protect assets as part of succession/estate planning.
