What is the purpose of establishing companies? Money making, asset protection, plans and goals implementation. A company in one’s home country can serve a range of tasks, but cannot cover all the needs of a business. Especially if the business enters international markets.
Registering a company in another country is a smart move to cover new areas, protect your assets, and diversify your risks. In some cases it leads to direct savings on taxes, logistics and infrastructure.
