Anonymous ownership

What are good structures for anonymous ownership in Europe?
Esp UK solutions and US LLC?

I am especially thinking of control so that it would be difficult for debtors etc. to gain control of the assets of my companies

Appoint nominee director and shareholder is one of the most popular wys of doing it. If you thinking in creditor & lender protection you want to setup a Seychelles holding company, so it will be very difficult and very costly for them to get information or even access to anything. Depending on the amount 99,9% will give up.

real anonimity can only be had with a swiss ag (bearer shares), the rest is a kludge, but will work for 95% of the cases.

I'm not sure but I read about a company form in Poland that allows bearer shares too - anybody has some experience?

No bank will accept bearer shares unless they receive them (still I believe this is a old thing that don't work in 2019 anymore) and what would you use bearer shares for if that is the case?

checkout the Mentor Group if you want to be sure about what to do. In most cases if you go through the posts there you will find very useful information and if you are able to convert the knowledge into action you will have a perfect fitting solution to what you seek.

As already mentioned, Nominees are the widely used key to stay anonymous with European entities. You just have to consider that it's still mandatory to give away your passport and utility bill to a 3rd party who can identify you if required.

Better is to stay secure and find places where you can avoid to give your own KYC / DD documents.

Does someone know if nominees are still the solution to hide your identity? From what I read it is not any longer, UBO will show up on almost any registry worldwide except with US entities like Wyoming and Delaware and in Europe if there are several UBO's with max 25% ownership each.

Anything to add here?

I know of darks which I learned about the first time in the mentor group but that's a different story. Just want to add, it works great for me for years.

Wonder if this is still the case. When you are around again please shed some light on the story.
