We strongly advise against a company within the EU e.g. on Malta or Cyprus. Taxes, accounting and public company registers are the rule within the EU and are also available in Malta or Cyprus. By the foundation of several companies or the use of trustees, it is tried to suggest tax exemption or anonymity. In reality, there is no effective tax rate of 0% within the EU and trustees create only limited anonymity. In addition, there are substance requirements, such as an office with employees and accounting. Quite a few clients who contact us have previously worked with a Malta or Cyprus company and have underestimated the complexity and annual costs of an office with staff, accounting and trustee services.
The United Arab Emirates, and Dubai in particular, have received a lot of media attention lately, and for good reason. Dubai enjoys a central location between Europe, Africa and Asia. This makes it a prime business destination for many sectors and industries. Within a five-hour flight from Dubai, you will not find such a cosmopolitan and progressive city anywhere. The city's highly regulated environment conforms to international best practices and operates with zero rates for personal and corporate taxes. Businesses in Dubai enjoy 100% capital repatriation with no currency restrictions. This level of financial freedom is rarely found in areas with such a developed business environment. Dubai is a leading commercial center with state-of-the-art infrastructure.
