New Zealand: Look-through companies, trusts, partnerships, and business immigration opportunities

New Zealand is one of the most reputable jurisdictions in the world but it does offer many advantages to the foreign investor. This section will introduce you to various opportunities available to non-residents in New Zealand. Probably, the country is going to become the one where you want to register a foreign company or a foreign trust. No one will even call New Zealand an offshore jurisdiction but it offers some ‘offshore’ products anyway. This is the irony of the de-offshorization process: ‘clean’ countries now offer opportunities that used to be found only in small island states before, that is, in classic offshores.

Immigration to New Zealand is a separate issue. The country does not have a citizenship-by-investment program and you can become a New Zealander only via naturalization. At the same time, you can easily acquire legal residency there in a fast way by making an investment into the local economy.
