    Kingdom and mainland Europe.

    About Jersey

    Private Trust Companies Special Purpose Vehicles Partnerships Ordinary, Limited or

    Protected Cell Companies

    Our key aim is to have a good

    understanding of our clients requirements

    at all times to ensure that their offshore

    affairs continue to be effective.

    International PlanningOur clients have diverse cross

    border requirements and, as such,

    we have considerable expertise

    in understanding international

    structures. Working with tax specialists,

    including members of Moore Stephens

    International Limited globally, and the

    clients professional advisers, we give

    guidance on the most appropriate

    vehicles to be used in a structure.

    International tax planning also

    encompasses estate planning for

    those clients with interests in more

    than one jurisdiction.

    PartnershipsIncreasingly, partnerships are used as vehicles for structured finance transactions and we have extensive experience and knowledge in managing these entities, including acting as General Partner, providing administration and specialist accounting services and arranging

    Partnership meetings.

    TrustsAlthough as old as the British legal

    system itself, a trust and more

    particularly an offshore trust, has

    become an integral part of wealth

    and tax planning. What started as

    a simple arrangement between a

    wealthy landowner (the Settlor) and a

    trusted friend or relative (the Trustee)

    and the landowners dependents

    (the Beneficiaries), has now become

    a sophisticated estate and succession

    planning tool governed by modern

    laws tailored to meet the needs of

    international clients to structure and

    protect their family or corporate wealth.

    A trust is one of the most secure and

    flexible ways to provide for the continuity

    of family assets and preserve their wealth

    from inappropriate or unwanted use.

    Other benefits of establishing a trust

    include anonymity, freedom of choice

    and reduced political risk.

    FoundationsFoundations are particularly attractive

    to clients in jurisdictions where

    the concept of trusts is either not

    recognised or is less well known; or

    where clients are keen to maintain

    control over generated wealth, and

    personally set the rate of flow of

    information to beneficiaries.

    Foundations can also be used for family

    and/or inheritance purposes, charitable

    purposes, owners of companies

    (holding or parent), commercial

    Working closely with our clients and their professional advisers, we

    provide bespoke and comprehensive offshore Trust and Corporate services,

    including the establishment and ongoing administration and accounting

    of appropriate vehicles, dependent on the clients requirements and the

    complexity of their affairs. Typical clients comprise private individuals,

    families and corporate bodies.

    orphaned special purpose vehicle

    is required) and employee benefits


    CompaniesJersey companies can be structured

    to meet a wide variety of business

    purposes from simple asset holding,

    such as real estate and investment

    portfolios, to more complex

    arrangements including structured

    finance, corporate restructuring and

    vehicles for accessing capital markets.

    Jersey is a tax neutral jurisdiction and,

    therefore, using a Jersey company for

    structuring international financing

    transactions can be beneficial in terms

    of company law provisions and tax

    treatment. The Companies (Jersey)

    Law, 1991, is the principal piece of

    legislation governing Jersey companies,

    which is similar, yet simpler, than UK

    company law and allows for greater

    flexibility. Other key benefits of

    Jersey companies include separate

    legal identity, limited liability for

    shareholders and ease of transfer of
