What is Foundation?

Foundation is a type of entity that is a cross-breed between a trust and a corporation, however, it is neither, rather as a separate legal entity, has the capacity to execute rights and acquire obligations. It is created by a declaration of the Founder and generally has as a purpose the preservations of assets for benefit of the Founder or Beneficiaries.

Benefits of Trust & Foundation

Tax Savings

The trust can avoid inheritance tax, gift tax, wealth tax, transfer tax, and the beneficiaries can receive income and assets free of income taxes. However, U.S. taxpayers and others in countries taxing global income must report all income to their tax agencies.

Asset Protection

Trusts assets are beyond the reach of the settlor’s and beneficiaries creditors

Privacy

Since trusts are not registered with the government, there are no public records about them.

Tax Free

Foreign Owner

The settlor can be from any country along with the beneficiaries and the trust properties can also be located in other countries.

Succession & Relationship Planning

How it works
