Where offshore professional directors are appointed with a view to a BVI company becoming non-tax-resident in the country of residence of the shareholder or ultimate beneficial owner of the company, it is very important to ensure that the offshore director can exercise the appropriate degree of management and control of the business to substantiate the advantageous tax status of the offshore company. Jordans have considerable expertise and experience in this area.

Offshore company residence can only be achieved if the offshore directors, wherever they are located, are permitted to exercise effective management of the company.

Jordans Trust Company can provide advice and assistance in this vital area.

The concept of central management and control is a key issue in international tax planning.  Provided that offshore directors make well-informed decisions on behalf of the offshore company, and maintain adequate control over the company's affairs, achieving company residence in a low-tax area is not difficult to achieve. Case law from countries such as the UK, US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand support this view.

Jordans Trust Company can advise on relevant case law in order to implement optimum arrangements offshore, and can provide appropriate director services.
