Offshore companies have many benefits over their local counterparts, enjoying advantages like asset protection, tax savings, centralisation of management, financial security, and privacy, and so on.

We can help with finding an adequate company to meet the client’s requirements (in the case of a purchase) or even selecting the most satisfactory form of organisation, provision of a registered agent, and necessary administrative support in compliance with all the required statutes.

BluTrust is also committed to providing complete client support, including post incorporation assistance as well as de-registration and winding up services if necessary. Our services include helping clients meet the requirements and regulations for liquidation within their jurisdictions, as well as providing the required administrative assistance for de-registration or winding up.
