Overview

Anyone interested in "going offshore" in terms of their finances and investments needs to understand every aspect of this process in order to succeed. No one knows this better than international tax haven and offshore financial specialist Hoyt Barber. Fifteen years have passed since Barber first published one of the most well-rounded guides to the financial benefits and pitfalls of going offshore. Since that time, much has changed, yet little has been done to help you navigate this attractive, but complex, environment—until now.

Filled with in-depth insight and expert advice, Tax Havens Today arms you with the knowledge, strategies, and contacts needed to avoid expensive mistakes and make the most of your offshore endeavors. Divided into four comprehensive parts, this timely resource will bring you completely up to speed on a variety of issues that anyone aspiring to go offshore must be familiar with.

  • Locate a diverse selection of offshore banking and investment options for any size investor as well as specific offshore tax planning and investment strategies
  • Reduce taxes, defer taxes, and invest tax-free, while simultaneously protecting your assets and planning your estate—all from offshore
  • Weigh the advantages and drawbacks of forty important tax havens
  • Use twelve proven criteria to make intelligent decisions on the best tax havens for your particular situation
  • Further pursue the exploration of tax-advantaged offshore retirement havens—and other countries with strong appeal to aspiring investors and expatriates

Tax Havens Today also contains over 500 contacts, including names, addresses, telephone and fax numbers, e-mail addresses, and Web sites of the most important investment, banking, legal, and financial advisors in the world—all divided by tax haven or other jurisdiction—and a brief description of their areas of expertise.
