The new Seychelles company in detail
Finally, with the introduction of international substance requirements for foreign companies, the CFC-Rules and the corresponding national changes in tax legislation and corporate law, the offshore company is now globally a relic of the ‘olden days’.
Exceptions! Corporate locations such as the Republic of Panama, UAE (United Arab Emirates) and the Republic of Seychelles recognised the signs at an early stage and with the introduction of modern, well thought through and extremely business-friendly regulations, ensured that international businesses can continue to enjoy the many valued advantages – without having to bear the stigma of an offshore company.
