Offshore Business Investment

We understand that you enjoy making great investments in your home country and now you want to invest overseas as well. Before you decide to make an investment in a foreign country, there are many factors to consider, especially when the governing laws vary from one country to another. You must therefore think about all of the following items before making a foreign investment.

This refers to a physical investment that is made to acquire an interest in an enterprise operating outside the investor’s home country. The investor could be a foreign person, company or group of entities seeking to control the foreign enterprise. You may acquire control over the enterprise by:

Incorporating a wholly owned subsidiary or company

Acquiring shares in an associated enterprise

Through a merger or an acquisition of an unrelated enterprise

Participating in an equity joint venture with another investor or enterprise

Investing offshore is a great idea for any businessperson, but there are a few key factors that you will need to consider first when evaluating the desirability of an overseas investment. These include:

What is the taxation regarding capital gains, income, dividends and interest?

Are there any incentives, such as tax holidays, preferential tariffs, special economic zones, etc?

Are there high national economic growth rates?

Is the exchange rate stable?

Is a speedy and reliable dispute settlement system available?
