International Foundations and Trusts are used for asset protection, gain control as to how those assets are passed on to future generations while making them flexible, reliable and tax efficient. Should one opt for a Foundation or a Trust, depends on one’s requirement. The table below gives an indication of some of the factors one needs to consider before opting of either.

Seychelles has traditionally been a cost effective jurisdiction in terms of International Business Companies which are amongst the most competitively priced in the world and very popular in China as well. Services around trusts and foundations are also typically competitively priced with other comparable markets. This should not be confused with a low level of service however as many Seychelles firms are associated with international trust services providers, law firms and otherwise have highly competent and trained professional staff who are members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners for example. Seychelles Foundations in particular are a good value when factoring the quality of the law, low government fees and typically competitive fees from the services providers.
