Hi guys, I’m a newbie to this and spent the week reading through the threads –really fascinating (I read the Seychelles CSL one, the Seychelles foundation and the UBO v foundation). I am hesitating on a structure for my needs and I would love to get your feedback. The goal is to minimise tax (even if I have to pay a bit its ok) as long as I can freely use my money to buy property in the EU if my business works out in the future and cash in crypto, with little risk of being audited. Cant afford a structure that will attract attention/audit for the field I'm in. I am an EU resident (Ireland) and I work remotely as a consultant in different countries. I am not sure whether I will need a bank account, EMI might work for me. I am thinking of either: a) a combination of a Seychelles CSL and an intermediate holding company in the EU. Questions: i) Should I pick an EU country with a DTA with Seychelles for the IBC (Jersey, Guernsey, IOM, Belgium, Cyprus)? If so, which one? (I would prefer a secure bank in Jersey/Guernsey) ii) Does it matter that there is no DTA between Seychelles and my country of residence Ireland? And what does that mean for the Irish taxman -what would I declare? iii) In this scenario, the intermediary company would own the property but where should my salary go to the CSL or the holding company? iv) could I safely open a bank account with a holding company in the EU, considering my money would have been taxed already? v) if I use an EMI, would it work for large transfers to buy property? And for crypto? b) a combination of a Seychelles foundation (because it is a separate legal entity compared to a trust) that holds shares in a Seychelles IBC. Questions: i) I know the IBC could be in a different jurisdiction but Seychelles seems good as an option. Would you recommend a different country for an IBC? ii) In this scenario, which one would own the property and where should my salary go to the CSL or the holding company? iii) And what does that mean for the Irish taxman -what would I declare? iv) would the Irish taxman tax me again on the money if I get audited? v) I understand it would be hard to open a bank account with this set up, is there a chance an EMI might report me? vi) is this model higher risk than the one above? I know it’s a lot of questions but it seems like a complex structure for a newbie like me and I need to know it will work before I jump into it. Recommendations for someone to incorporate are welcome!
