The-advantages-of-setting-up-a-trust-in-Seychelles.jpgForeign investors can set up other types of structures apart from offshore companies in Seychelles. As a matter of fact, Seychelles is known for the increased protection offered to the assets of foreign investors which is why many of them come here to establish trusts.

There are several advantages which can be associated with the creation of a trust in Seychelles and which can be explained by our local consultants. We can also help those interested in setting up offshore companies in Seychelles.

The 4 most important advantages of trusts in Seychelles

The creation of an international trust in Seychelles offers the following 4 benefits:

  • -          the protection of assets which can be used as an estate planning tool;
  • -          the enhanced confidentiality of the settlor’s identity and assets held in the trust;
  • -          the possibility of using the Seychelles trust as a tax minimization solution;
  • -          international trusts benefit from several tax advantages in Seychelles.

Our company formation agents in Seychelles can help foreign citizens who want to create international or charitable trusts here.

How to protect one’s assets through a trust in Seychelles

One of the greatest advantages of setting up a trust in Seychelles is the enhanced protection of the settlor’s assets or whole estate. Through a trust registered in Seychelles, the assets of the settlor will pass on to the trusts, therefore they will no longer be part of his or her estate. This way, in case of bankruptcy, creditors will not have access to the assets held by the Seychelles trust.

The Seychelles trust, a tax minimization tool

The Trust Act in Seychelles provides for trusts established here to be exempt from all types of taxes, as long as these assets are not located in Seychelles. This is why a trust created by foreign investors in Seychelles can be a great tax minimization solution.

When it comes to the taxes an international trust can be exempt from, these are:

  • -          the income tax;
  • -          the profits tax;
  • -          the estate tax;
  • -          the gift tax;
  • -          the inheritance tax;
  • -          the succession tax.

For more information on the advantages of trusts or assistance in setting one up, please contact our company registration advisors in Seychelles. We can also help foreign investors who want to open Seychelles offshore companies.
