Why You Should Consider The Jurisdiction Of Liechtenstein

The Principality of Liechtenstein is a small nation with around a 35,000 population that is situated in Central Europe between the countries of Austria and Switzerland. The economy of Liechtenstein is strong and it has the lowest external debt of any country in the world. It is a highly industrialized country and is second in the world for the highest GDP per capita, it is also second for the lowest unemployment figures and the taxes on businesses are extremely low.

The official currency of Liechtenstein is the Swiss Franc (CHF). It uses this stable currency because of its agreements and close ties with neighbors Switzerland. The Principality is socially and politically stable and Liechtenstein has an AAA rating from Standard & Poors because it has a national budget that is debt free. It is one of the most secure financial markets in the world, and the economy of the country is well diversified. This is a very safe jurisdiction for your assets.

The government has been hard at work over the past few years, as it wants Liechtenstein to be seen as one of the world’s foremost and legitimate international banking centers. It has come to an agreement with the United States of America to provide full information about accounts that are held by citizens of the USA. It has also agreed with the OECD to be a lot more financially transparent.

In an agreement with the European Union (EU) in 2015, the Principality will make it impossible for citizens of the EU to hide their money in Liechtenstein banks. This means that the various tax administrators from EU member states will be able to identify their citizens that should be paying tax and impose their tax laws on these Liechtenstein bank account holders. This started from 1 January 2016. You cannot hide money in Liechtenstein any more but you can protect, grow and diversify your assets there.

Liechtenstein has also signed an agreement in October 2014 to fully participate in the Automatic Exchange of Information (AEoI) program and this means that starting in 2017 they will be gathering relevant details from financial institutions in the Principality annually which includes reportable income, financial institutions, due diligence procedures and reportable accounts.

As Liechtenstein is a member of the EU it has initiated the Deposit Guarantee Scheme. This scheme aims to cover deposits in Liechtenstein banks and provide a level of protection for the investors. In the unlikely event that the bank was unable to meet its payment obligations and ends up in default, the scheme will aim to cover client deposits up to 100,000 CHF. For more details about the Deposit Guarantee Scheme please contact your Offshore Pro Group international banking consultant.
