 Be Prepared to Get the Funding You Need                                                                                                April 2010

 

If you are seeking out business funding sources in order to raise capital for a new or ongoing business venture, startup, or other project you are undoubtedly passionate about your project.  Unfortunately it takes more than passion and commitment to secure financing.

Lenders don’t care how important your project is to you on a personal level.  They care about the bottom line.  Jumbling up your presentation with emotional details or trying to pretty or sex it up will only attract funders and middlemen who may not be very reputable and will end up costing you time and money.   Legitimate lenders prefer to have bare-bones facts presented in a professional manner.

 Estate Planning                                                                                                                                                 July 2009

It is never too late or too early to plan your estate.  Many people may think that estate planning is something needed to be done by the very wealthy people but this is far from the truth. 

No matter how small your house, property or bank account is, deciding who is going to inherit your wealth is important for many reasons.  The beneficiary or beneficiaries of your belongings or property can be your own child, spouse, relative or close friend or cat! What matters is that whatever you have earned in your life time goes to the people you wish to pass your assets to and that they are distributed according to your wishes.  

People also leave their wealth such as land or monetary donation for charitable organizations, churches, for a social cause or protection of the environment.

The global financial crisis has been making headline news for the past few months and shows no signs of abating. Around the world, government leaders are making pledges to ease the burdens of the recession for their respective country’s.

Economic Citizenship – A Global Perspective                                                                               December 2008

 

The notion of citizenship can be defined as the juridical-political nexus that attaches an individual to a sovereign state.  Citizenship grants an individual access to a number of political and legal rights and is the source of the sense of belonging that individuals feel towards a given society or country.  In short, citizenship is expressed as a personal relationship that a person shares with a country in identifying himself as a product of its culture, national identity and society.

Very often, the terms ‘citizen’ and ‘national’ tend to be applied interchangeably despite the fact their meanings may differ from each other based on a given context.  In essence, although citizens are nationals of a country, there are nationals who are not necessarily citizens but are identified accordingly due to the fact that they are protected by the state. Such as in the case of permanent residents in a country who are called nationals but are required to meet specific juridical and residential prerequisites in order to become citizens.

International Business Companies – An Opportunity to Legally Save on Taxes.                  November 2008

In introducing this discussion on the benefits that can be derived from the use of an International Business Company (IBC), I would first like to establish the distinction between two major concepts that play a critical role in understanding how IBC’s, frequently referred to as ‘Offshore Companies’, function. 

Although the use of offshore companies has become extremely widespread throughout the world, the basic misconception of how an offshore company can be used to save on taxes is still prevalent. Most people relate an offshore company or IBC with saving on taxes, and in so doing confuse the concepts of tax evasion and tax avoidance.  Tax evasion, we may define as the act of simply refusing to pay taxes due, by means that are considered illegal within the law. In contrast, tax avoidance refers to utilizing the provisions within the taxation laws of a country to one’s advantage so that savings on taxes can be made.
