    Arguments of State tax departments against offshore constructions

    The following is an attempt distilled from case law by B. J. Knulst, in his book (translated) "Tax havens", Kluwer Antwerpen, 1984, p. 76, but still very valid, to systematically list arguments of State tax departments against offshore constructions:

    1. The reality behind the legal acts presented, serves another purpose than presented in these acts.

    2. No or insufficient counter value is received for the expenditures made, or the activities carried out.

    3. There are fictitious interventions by or transactions with the offshore entity.

    4. There is an identity of interests and an organisational intertwinement of parties with the offshore entity.

    5. There are unequal relationships in the transactions administrated, which would never have been entered into with third parties.

    6. Formation of the offshore entity took place shortly before the execution of transactions with the tax subject, who thereby would pay significantly less tax.

    7. The management is provided by a trust company but initiatives are taken not by this management, but in your home country.

    8. The offshore entity did not have any real activity with third parties and or has a very low net worth.

    9. There is a presence of tax motives and an absence of bona fide business motives.

    10. The offshore company in itself has no or little financial economic capacity and substance, apart from the execution of the transactions with the tax subject.

    For the definition of an offshore company, see the article of Me Thierry Pouliquen, Bonn, Steichen & Partners, Luxembourg: "
