What about incorporating a company in Gibraltar?


in Gibraltar by @nouk5yr  | 7 comments

Gibraltar is known to be home of companies for online websites related to gaming and gambling.
I wonder why there are few people talking about this option as income not derived from Gibraltar are tax-free. Furthermore, it is outside of the EU vat zone.

Are there issues related to this jurisdiction?

Have you considered Estonia with the e-Residency? I know many DNโ€™s running an Estonian company remotely with e-Residency.

It is possible to live in Malta as a fiscal resident but it is far away from everything for 0% on income tax. Moving is always complicated.

For corporate tax purposes, apart from Gibraltar, in Europe, it is very very difficult: -Jersey is overpriced and the registered agents arenโ€™t as serious as in Gibraltar. -Isle of man is in the EU VAT tax zone. -In Guernesey i havenโ€™t been able to find serious registered agents.

I had a company there until recently. Like most tax havens its increasing its transparency and declaring accounts to EU member states. At the end of the day its about permenant establishement and tax residency. If you are in another european country you are seen as owning the gib company from there and so your host country will want to tax you on it.

Gibraltar has signed many TIEA - Tax Information Exchange agreement with many European countries. They provide information to tax authorities upon request & they bill the other country for it.

In Europe, the best for sure, to be a fiscal resident live in a country with a Flat rate for incoming tax like Czech republic, Hungary or Bulgaria. For instance, in Czech Republic you pay 15% on dividends from a foreign country whatever the country where the dividends come from.

Transferring money from anywhere to anywhere in Europe without paying income tax is not impossible but i was referring to paying 0% corporate tax and living in another country of Europe where you would pay income tax.

I think you were right to leave Gibraltar. In fact, Gibraltar should leave EU because there are a Gibraltar territory. However, Gibraltar government and companies benefit from being part of the EU without getting the disadvantage of the EU (it is out of EU Vat zone and people invest because there is less taxes). If they want to be part of the EU just like Malta, they will have to raise more taxes.

For instance, incorporating the online business in Gibraltar and living in Spain.

I live in Spain. I enjoyed having my Company formed in Gibraltar. However, there is a risk that Spain will declare that the companies permanent establishement is where I live in Spain. You dont want to get into that. The ease of no vat, being part of the UK BACS system and no corp tax was great. But I still pay a fortune in Spanish income tax. I tried to find expert advice on how to setup our online business for tax purposes and could not find it. I even paid for advice but it was conflicting and every solution put forward had question marks over it. It really annoys me. Now we just pay a lot of tax until I find another way. Not prepared to move to another country just now to only save on tax. Final comment on the Gib company, you still pay income tax as you have said and you still have the problem of how to extract the Gib companies profits without getting hammered for tax. Its all very well building up a nice pot โ€ฆbut if you cant get it out.

I might re-consider HEPPS but would have to live in Gibraltar. Thereโ€™s also a gib residency status called โ€˜self sufficiencyโ€™ but i cannot find out much about it, doubt we could qualifyโ€ฆ http://theaddressmagazine.com/issue-20/gibraltar-residency/

What features would you like to see on Nomad List?


by @levelsio7mo 6 months ago | 3 comments

Hi everyone,

I would love to hear what you'd like me to build next on Nomad List, or any other product/feature feedback ideas you have.

It's been 6+ years now but I'm in this for the long term and with the boost remote work got last year it's even more exciting to work on Nomad List than ever.

Current roadmap is here: twitter.com/levelsio/status/1363204985488572417?s=20 and pbs.twimg.com/media/EusS9PKXEAUR8xp?format=jpg&name=4096x4096

The next products/features I have planned:

- ๐Ÿ›‚ Rebase: visa, residency and immigration services for remote workers

- ๐ŸŽ“Courses: learn the steps how to go remote and travel/relocate

- ๐Ÿ› Gov liaison: diplomacy services to the governments to help us lobby for nomads and for them to attract remote workers

Thanks a lot!

List of Visa/Residency Information in Table/Spreadsheet format?


by @innovatelife7mo 7 months ago | 2 comments

As part of signing up for this website I was hoping I would come across a list of Visa and/or Residency requirements by country ideally in a table format to assist with decision making. Does anybody recommend any other websites that might present the information in this format (or Google Spreadsheet)?

Most Walkable Neighborhood / City In The World ?


by @dannybooboo8mo 7 months ago | 1 comment

I love living in walkable areas of town. I can always find them. But now I'm wondering where in the world are the most walkable places? I'm imagining walk streets (no cars), zoning allowing both business and residential, parks or beaches ,etc.

Any nomads in Arizona, US?


in Netherlands by @info1328mo 7 months ago | 4 comments

Hi guys,

After the Netherlands, the Bay Area, Colorado and being on the van life for 8 months, I am now in Sedona, AZ with a few other digital nomads. We are sharing a home here and are wondering if there are more like minded people in the area.

We do a bunch of hikes and campouts in the northern of Arizona. If you would like to connect with us, please do so :)

Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of?


in Germany by @clara8mo 7 months ago | 0 comments

Hi everybody. I live and work in Germany and want to go to Canary Islands for 6 months to work from there. I'm going to keep my current job, just change the "home" in the home office part of things. Are there any tax issues I have to be aware of? I was reading about becoming a residence after 183 days, thus having to pay taxes there plus my employer having to register there. Does anybody know how it works exactly? Thanks a lot!

Winter is coming and Iโ€™m feeling the ache of travelling after being stuck in the same place since the Pandemic started. Wondering if anyone is travelling right now? If so, where are you currently located and how is the situation where you are?

Incorporating offshore for trading cryptocurrency


by @invictus_13yr 3 years ago | 3 comments

Hello everyone,

I am a resident of Canada and I just found this site. I have been involved in cryptocurrency since 2011. I have been taking a bit of profits and paying capital gains taxes on my withdrawals for the 5 years. The problem is, 2018 is going to be a big for me because I have some investments that I expect to 10x in value. If I proceed with active trading the gains are getting to be so much that they are really going to cut into my bottom line.

I would like to incorporate offshore somewhere so I can trade in a companyโ€™s name and then pay myself a wage through that company that I can pay taxes on. What would be the best location to do so?

I have looked at Hong Kong because I am in the area fairly often (living in Phuket now) but it seems that there are a lot of hidden costs to the 0% tax rate according to this thread:

Would someone be able to offer advice or point to someone who can?
