Vina's insight:

Excerpt:

To be sure, owning or managing offshore corporations or trusts in tax havens is perfectly legal in the Philippines. To defenders of offshore centers, these places are not necessarily about illicit activities but about legal and tax neutrality for international joint ventures. Compared to incorporating the joint venture in one of the investors’ home country, setting it up in an offshore haven does not give advantage to any of the investors. This also minimizes taxes on the joint venture itself, leaving it to the investors to pay taxes based on tax regulations of their respective home countries.

 

Offshore downside

Yet, offshore corporations and trusts remain controversial worldwide because they are sometimes used to hide illicit wealth and income from corruption, tax evasion, and shadowy economic activities. Many rich Western countries, under pressure to boost tax collections to curb the rapid growth in public debt from bailing out banks in recent years, have pressed offshore financial centers to share more information on rich country residents with accounts in so-called tax havens such as British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, and others.

 

In 2009, the G20 grouping of the world’s biggest economies announced its aim to bring about the “end of bank secrecy” as it stepped up moves to get offshore centers to sign up to higher standards of transparency and exchange of information on tax matters.

 

In low-income countries such as the Philippines, international experts are saying that funds kept offshore by the wealthy elite could be holding back economic development as vital financial resources are stashed abroad rather than used to build up domestic infrastructure and productive capacity.
