Offshore company registration, also known as offshore company formation or offshore business setup, is one of Tannet's registration services. Offshore companiese have become a hot topic in the international trade and investment promotion. The registration of offshore company for most enterprises are mainly out of the purpose of going public or tax avoidance, but they must not fall into the wrong place, namely, thinking that they can be completely tax-free if they register in the "tax haven". In fact, this kind of tax avoidance, fundamentally speaking, avoids the tax of the country where it is located.

Offshore Company Registration Process
Generally speaking, the registration for the overseas company includes the following four aspects, let’s take the foreign branch for example:
1.Preparation. Do the necessary preparatory work, including the understanding of the operating environment and legal and policy environment of foreign countries, the analysis on the aspects of technique, finance and personnel as well as the selection of the operating projects and business premises.
2. Approval application. Companies registered abroad must apply to the competent authorities abroad. As mentioned here, "foreign competent authorities" mainly refer to the administration organs of foreign governments concerning foreign investment. If it is the operation of a special industry, the competent authority refers to the management of the special trades.
3. Approval. After accepting the application of a foreign company, the competent authority shall examine the relevant matters and documents as soon as possible for the establishment of the branch office. Where the establishment meets the needs of the state and conforms to the provisions of the law, the approval shall be made. Otherwise, it will not be approved.
