The USA is one of the strongest economies in the whole world. It is the leading economy in many sectors and besides, the USA emits the reserve currency – the US dollar.
It is not surprising that many investors from other parts of the world look for an opportunity to start a business in America or to buy an existing one. Many people would also like to relocate to the USA for good.
Even though officially the USA is an onshore (that is, high-tax) jurisdiction, many international financial experts believe that it is, in fact, the largest offshore jurisdiction in the world where billions and trillions of dollars are secretly kept.
The United States administration supports the international efforts to increase the level of transparency in classic offshore jurisdictions. At the same time, the USA has not signed the multilateral Convention on automatic exchange of fiscal information. This means that the States do not automatically share their foreign residents’ financial information with the authorities of their home countries. Acquiring such information on a direct request is not easy either.
This fact makes the USA a highly attractive jurisdiction for asset protection.
In addition, the legislation of some states still allows establishing offshore companies with zero taxation and a high level of confidentiality. Such legislation can be found in Wyoming, Nevada, Delaware, and some other states.
The United States also remains the banking center of the world. The best part of all transboundary transactions go through the country. Many American banks are large in size and they enjoy high demand on the part of foreign nationals. Some banks in the country do open accounts for non-residents of the USA.
Many people are interested in immigrating to the USA on a business visa or some other visa type. You can acquire an American Green Card or an EB-5 visa and become a full citizen of the United States after some time and under certain conditions.
Here we have to stress that all citizens and legal residents of the USA who live abroad remain tax residents of the Unite States. That means that they have to report their incomes to the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) regardless of how long they live in a foreign country.
