    Hello. I an looking into setting up a company in an overseas location such as seychelles, Belize, Nevis, BVI, etc.

    Is it possible to do this - AND - have some form of payment gateway also? The company revolves around subscriptions/membership - so transactions are small - but in multiples.

    I am trying to get my head around how to sort this out - but it's seems (right now) like a difficult subject to gain full understanding of (and clearly, I need to go in with my eyes open!!).

    I might be able to help you out. It's not difficult if you know the right people. And have a little bit of cash.

    I'm taking it you are wanting a high risk merchant account as well? Where you run free trial offers into memberships?

    Yes, that's correct.
    Ok - that sounds of interest - would be keen to know more. Not sure if I can pm you (last time I tried to do so on this board, I think I couldn't as I had not had enough posts).

    superaff1984 - Have just tried to p_m you - but not possible as I have less than 15 posts. Maybe you could send me a p_m if you don't mind?


    CompanyServiceDir - thanks for your post. I may well get back in contact with you. I just need to find out a bit more about the subject first as I'm sure you can appreciate.

    this is very interesting, cos i have been thinking along the same lines as the OP. offering something , cos my niche is a high risk niche and hard to find a merchant wholl do all i ask.

    i look forward to see where this goes. thx.

    Hi YingYang - please let me know how you get on. Perhaps we can exchange notes as regards building up our understanding of how all this works (as I don't think it's something that anyone can afford to make a mistake with).

    Unfortunately, as I have less than 15 posts, I can't pm anyone...very frustrating. Would you mind sending a pm to superaff1984 - referencing this thread - as I would be keen to chat with him some more on how to go about this?

    Likewise, your more than welcome to pm me an email address - so that maybe we could compare notes on what our understanding is - and in this way, avoid falling into a big hole in the process of setting this up!)


    Regards,


    Borderfox.

    This is something you need to get right from the start. Depending on your industry there are some countries that are better suited than others. If your dealing with a bank in the same country they can often assist with incorporation at a reduced rate. Let me know your industry and processing volumes and I can point you in the right direction.

    I am not sure what the benefit of off-shore is nowadays.
    The anti-terror laws of the US basically brought everyone in line to report any income etc.
    Just think about it, any international wire transfer over 10k is reported to the US government (via the friendly people at SWIFT who for all intents and purposes reside in Belgium). Switzerland, Panama, Cayman islands, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein... all report to the INS...

    Also, US international tax laws are a mess. Even if you do not pay yourself any money from your corporation you are going to be taxed on dividend income since you should have paid yourself !!!

    Insane and not worth the trouble in my experience.

    I'm looking to do the same myself so if anyone can help me out I'd be greatly appreciative.
    I don't have 15 posts so you'll need to message me too.

    I'm interested in some help with this. I own a very lucrative cash cow and need an offshore business to base it?

    Could someone get in touch with more info!

    Alternatively, if someone owns an offshore business with a working bank and merchant account and would like a share in a $3000/day business - get in touch.

    Completely legit!
