Legal Nexus to a Caribbean Tax Haven

To obtain the ultimate tax advantages of Caribbean citizenship, some supplemental measures may be necessary. Rest assured, we will assist you to get a local driver’s license, physical address, local SIM card/phone bills. Also, don’t forget your new tax identification number (TIN).

Solidifying your liberation from the global tax net may require renunciation of your original citizenship. (unavoidable if your country of origin is the US). In addition to the supplemental measures outlined above, renunciation will unequivocally establish your tax haven nexus. As a result, you are 100% free of income tax.


Government Approved Real Estate Options

Certain aspects of the real estate programs in CIP countries make them a compelling investment option. Ownership of property in one or the best tax haven countries will give you a physical address. This will be a crucial benefit for those who wish to establish tax free residency overseas.

Please note that if the investment was used to qualify for the CIP it can then be sold at the end of the holding period. Therefore, investors can recoup their capital while retaining citizenship in perpetuity.

Five of the best government approved CIP real estate developments are found in St Kitts (1), Grenada (2) and Dominica (2). Each of the three completed properties is well recognized internationally and they have all won awards from hundreds of publications such as The Economist, Forbes and Conde Nast Traveler. 

Furthermore, each property has excellent visitor reviews on the mainstream travel websites which can be independently verified. Their established client base is mostly from the United States and the European Union. Plus, the islands are a regular stop on the Caribbean cruise circuit.

Earn High Dividend Yields

Owners can participate in the profit sharing program to obtain a tax free investment yield and also visit the resort for 1-2 weeks per year free of charge (limitations apply). On average, the annual dividend payout can be as high as 3-5% depending on the property and their annual bookings. The more tourists that come per year, the higher the yield!

Importantly, each property also has an open design which makes it an ideal destination in the new age of social distancing. Social distancing was a indeed a special priority taken at Six Senses La Sagesse, Grenada. As a result, the 100 units are spread out over 28 acres featuring 30 swimming pools.

Personal Income Tax Exemptions

None of the Caribbean CIP countries impose international income tax on non residents. However, if you choose to reside locally there may be some residence based taxation imposed. For example, establishing tax residency in Dominica or St Lucia requires tax on international income sources.

Therefore, citizens should reside off the island or at least avoid meeting the physical presence requirement which is 182 days per year. Hint* don’t exceed 182 days on the island per year lest you pay income tax.

Indeed, being a tax resident somewhere usually means that you have tax liability unless, your country of citizenship and residency is a tax free jurisdiction. Rest assured, the best Caribbean tax havens are exactly what you are looking for. You have obtained the economic version of “Nirvana”.

Income tax rates imposed on international income for residents vs. non residents in the Caribbean tax havens we cover are as follows.

Acquire Citizenship in a Caribbean Tax Haven

Caribbean CIPs allow qualified applicants who have a clean background, produce a medical certificate and also make a qualified investment into the local economy to acquire lifelong citizenship.

The investment into the local economy can be in the form of a nonrefundable donation or investment into a government approved real estate project. 

Upon successful completion of due diligence it is necessary to commit to the investment. If it will be in the form of the government donation, submitting the total investment amount is only required after your application has been fully approved by the government.

In comparison, the real estate investment option will require a minimum 10% down payment to be made before the application is submitted. While the balance of the purchase price is only payable after your citizenship application is 100% approved by the government.

However, if the application is rejected for some unforeseen reason the full amount of the down payment is refundable. Please note we have a 100% approval ratio after submission.

Nevis Company with Nevis Trust

Caribbean tax havens such as St Kitts and Nevis are optimal destinations for an offshore company and asset protection trust. This is especially true since St Kitts and Nevis is already the world’s top destination for second citizenship. As a result, all three steps of the absolute best offshore tax plan are readily available for you and your family.

It all starts with acquiring second citizenship. In St Kitts and Nevis, you can have your new passports within 2 months. In addition, earn a 3-5% dividend yield on your qualifying property (see details below). As a citizen, you immediately qualify for tax residency, not only in St Kitts and Nevis but in any other participating CARICOM or OECS country.

Nevis Company

The second step in our asset protection plan is the formation of the Nevis company. Nevis is the sister island of St Kitts, together they form a twin island federation. However, Nevis has extra legal protections and tax benefits. While still part of the federation, this means that Nevis has their own banking and financial regulations. The island of Nevis has also elected to allow their companies a 0% income tax rate on all offshore income.

Nevis also has the strongest liability protection available for companies. It is virtually impossible for foreign entity to prevail against a Nevis company. This is because Nevis courts require that all actions brought against a Nevis company are done so in St Kitts and Nevis. This is a tremendous advantage for Nevis companies and their beneficial owners.

In addition, Nevis courts do not recognize foreign judgements against Nevis companies. The plaintiff graveyard in Nevis includes well funded state backed adversaries such as the IRS. They have failed when taking legal action against a Nevis company.

Nevis Asset Protection Trust

After you have completed the first two steps, it is time to consider a Nevis asset protection trust. Your citizenship will serve as the kernel for the beneficial owner of the Nevis company. It is formidable protection on its own. However, when your assets are included inside the Nevis company, the second layer of protection is implemented.

On its own, the Nevis company (with yourself serving as director/member) is nearly impossible to compromise. However, you can now put the company and yourself inside a Nevis Trust. If so, your protection becomes airtight. It is also ideal for tax free succession planning.

Caribbean Tax Havens have Strong Legal Protection

The legal framework for the Caribbean CIPs are ingrained in each country’s constitution. In contrast, tax haven benefits obtained without the backing of citizenship, are not as secure. Whereas citizenship granted under a CIP will provide the unwavering security of your new home country’s constitutional laws.

Essentially, with the backing of full citizenship you have the option to renounce your original  citizenship. On the other hand, tax residency without the backing of citizenship compels you to retain your original citizenship and the tax obligations that come with it. You will get the best of both worlds in the Caribbean tax havens if you qualify using a Caribbean passport.

As a result, exemption from global income tax is yours for a lifetime. There is no obligation to reside in the country unless it is your personal choice. The application process can be completed remotely with no requirement to visit the country. Additionally, Caribbean citizenship is hereditary. Your descendants and also their children may receive Caribbean citizenship by virtue of your investment. 

Rest assured, constitutional protection applies equally for all qualified applicants whether you are a political refugee, perpetual traveler, international businessman or you just want to renounce your current citizenship.

CARICOM & OECS Tax Benefits

Under CARICOM and the OECS, CIP allows you to reside in your Caribbean country of choice and be tax exempt on your personal income sources from overseas. Therefore, a citizen of St Kitts and Nevis can choose to reside in Grenada and be tax free for all offshore personal income sources.

However, be mindful of meeting the physical presence requirement in Dominica or St Lucia because they do impose tax on offshore income for residents. But that is only if you meet the physical presence requirement e.g. reside there for over 182 days per year.
