DCTS can form a company and administer a corporate structure in the Isle of Man or in the most appropriate jurisdiction to suit the individual requirements of a client.

There are many reasons and advantages for using corporate structures, especially those registered in financial centres such as the Isle of Man, can be used, for example, to mitigate taxes, to hold assets and investment portfolios.

Specific uses can be:

  • To own assets such as ships, property and works of art
  • To hold investment portfolios
  • For inheritance planning
  • For tax mitigation and planning
  • To act as an employer for international workers
  • Business structuring and re-structuring
  • To receive international earnings, commissions and royalties
  • To raise money by borrowing
  • As a vehicle to convert immovable assets, such as land, into movable assets, such as shares
  • To hold intellectual property
  • To manage a commercial ship

In addition, by using an offshore international financial centre such as the Isle of Man there are many other advantages, such as:

  • Favourable incorporation and administration costs
  • Less bureaucracy
  • More favourable taxation systems
  • Privacy
