    I wonder why a Russian business (aeza.ru) creates a €1 UK company (aeza.net) using a straw man from Kazakhstan as CEO and creates a free service for abusers.

    But there are plenty of resources to abuse for 15 minutes.

    yeah, it isn't. But it is really really easy and still looks pretty legit (e.g. one might see a company from cyprus as more suspicious than a "well-known" UK company, especially those not so versed with the topic)

    Probably but formation is still very cheap. I mean sure, you could also setup a Seychelles or Belize IBC but that would easily come at 100x the formation costs.

    Also time. They couldn’t accept card payments at all nearly. That’s super harmful for a digital online business, any countries tax rate would be preferable to be able to do that again. Espeically since (AFAIK) they still run clients from their home countries through their original company at Aeza.ru.

    Yeah they do, they just separated their Russian assets to a different ASN, different website (aeza.ru, which you can't register unless you have a .ru mail), and different company than their non-Russian assets.

    Though they still allow to top up with Russian CCs on aeza.net for some reason.

    Yeah, UK company formation is probably the most streamlined of all formation processes in general. The practically nonexistent capital requirements are just the icing on the cake. Opening an UK Limited company is hardly more complicated than ordering a VPS.

    Personally i've thought about it a couple of times (i mean, hey, locally i'd have to put up 20k€ for a comparable company) but then i'm not very keen of dealing with yet another tax system, so if i've ever get to the point where such a move makes some serious sense i'll probably put in the tiny bit of extra effort/money to settle in some flat tax (or obviously ideally zero tax) jurisdiction.

    I doubt there are any zero tax jurisdictions existing. Probably there are some government programs for local business development in the region but this is not something suitable for the most IT companies if you are not a resident there I think.

    Well, yeah, there's probably always some kind of recurring fees, which practically don't make a ton of difference in comparison to a flat tax but at least the usual suspects more or less work on the principle that everything not rendered locally is fair game and when you count your Seychelles, Belize, St. Kitts & Nevis, ... customers you probably see what that means ;)

    I don't think incorporating in those places would be (usually) worth it though. It's complicated (or at least requires a ton of research to avoid shady offers) and expensive, while there's also quite interesting options in various US states and such, which in general are probably way more realistic unless there's some very specific requirements. Still, you can't deny that the idea of not having to write annoying tax statements is a pretty relaxing thought.

  • edited March 3

    @tentor Some random examples (i have no idea if these formation companies are trustworthy and i haven't looked into the topic in years but in general there's quite some options for company formation even beyond the usual island tax havens and their IBCs):

    https://wyomingllcattorney.com/Form-a-Wyoming-LLC
    https://sterlingoffshore.com/knowledge-base/offshore-company/international-business-company-ibc/
    https://elegantservices.ae/ibc-company-formation/

    There's literally 100s of companies offering these kind of services and dozens of places that are quite happy to let you form your company without any connection to the country at all, while providing favorable conditions in return. It doesn't get as cheap as an UK Ltd but locations like Wyoming are still pretty affordable.

  • tentortentor Member, Patron Provider

    @totally_not_banned thanks but I am not that interested in this topic :D

    I have already established company in Estonia. The hardest part is not a company establishment but actually using it (opening account in the bank at least). It is not as straightforward as I thought, and it is even harder due to geopolitical tensions around Ukraine. But this is too much offtopic for this thread.

    Yeah, that's what i've been hearing too. Especially when one settled for some fishy (pun intended) island location. The general recommendation seems to be to throw money at the problem and let the formation company handle the opening of the account.

    But this is too much offtopic for this thread.

    Well, i think this thread is about dead anyways, so... ;)

    It is not something most startups are able to. In this case I handled almost all stuff myself. It took longer because of that but is significantly cheaper in both initial investments and long run.

    Absolutely. Being able to show up in person (i wouldn't even call booking a flight to the US overly practical - let alone to some random rock in the middle of nowhere) is a huge upside in this regard.

    In any case that's likely the point where people should pay the most attention to (even in cases where the formation company says they'll take care of it as the fine print often times states that the payment is for a recommendation with no guarantee that the bank will actually accept it...). I've more than once read about people opening companies just to find out those were about useless as they weren't able to get a bank account or it was just too expensive to have the matter handled.

    This is exactly one of the reasons why I have chosen Estonia - you don't have to travel abroad to Estonia (for establishing company), this is a good side of e-Residency. The bad part is that banks don't give a fuck about any restrictions and why e-Residency is so popular and require you to visit bank branch there...

    @totally_not_banned said: the fine print often times states that the payment is for a recommendation with no guarantee that the bank will actually accept it...

    I think all of them actually do so in this exact way.

    Ah, never had to look into any of that. Previously, to start the equivalent of an LLC in Sweden, you had to put about 5k (USD) into the stocks on formation. Now, it's about 2.5k, and you also just have to keep 50 % of it in assets once the company is formed.
