Overview

The Isle of Man is a self-governing British crown dependency, located in the Irish Sea at the geographical center of the British Isles. The Isle of Man legal system is based on the English common-law model. It is a full member of the European Union but it does have associate status which is very attractive.
The Isle of Man has strong banking, investment fund and captive insurance sectors, with a well-developed advisory and financial infrastructure and good transport links. Foreign Investors are attracted by the taxation structure; there are no capital gains taxes, turnover tax or capital transfer tax, no stamp duties and low rates of income tax.

Non-Resident Company is most popular offshore financial product.

Isle of Man’s Limited Company equivalent, referred to as an Isle of man Non-Resident Company.

A non-resident company is one which is registered in the Isle of Man and governed by its company law but managed and controlled in another jurisdiction.

A limited company is run by the directors. The main advantage to a Limited company is that it does have limited liability, this means that the wealth of the company is separate from the wealth of the owner and they will not be accountable for the company’s debts unless any wrong doing can be proven. Limited companies are will often benefit from the zero percent corporation tax in the Isle of Man. Income tax is only paid if the company pays you a salary so this has much more attractive tax appeal than Sole Traders or Partnerships, which is why it is the most popular choice for incorporation.
