We see so many threads with suggestions to make sure you have "substance" for your company!

Is there a bulleted list you could use to specify all the requirements?

And what does it cost to set it up in the most popular offshore jurisdictions?

Office and employment.

It's a very good idea, it could be called a Satellite office, for instant like this

As long as you pay rent there (it's most often cheap in such office facilities) and you find some Monkey that can sit there and do something, you are good to go.

The advantage of such "Satellite" offices is that you get phone, Internet and own address all in one cheap package.

Well this differs per jurisdictions so there is not one answer.

For example the Netherlands recently adjusted it's substance requirements because of the huge amount of shell companies registered there, the new requirements are as followed..

Pay a minimum of 100K in wages in the Netherlands and have an office at your disposal for at least 24 months.

If those criteria's are not met you will not be able to benefit from tax treaties and all kinds of other benefits the Netherlands has or used to have setting up a company there for example.

So you can just google substance requirements "your jurisdiction" and you will find out, it's not rocket science. And most tax havens don't have any substance requirements to begin with and if they have them there is a big chance they will not apply to you.

It really depends on what your company is doing, which jurisdiction you are choosing and your turnover. There's always ways in certain countries, though that varies given the nature of your business.
