Tax Structuring Advice - US

Discussion in 'Chit Chat' started by GreenTreeFrog, Apr 6, 2009.

  1. I am after a little preliminary info regarding tax structure in the US for an Aussie.

    I will be moving to NY to take up work contracting and want to set up a company to paid into.

    I have previously worked in the UK and Vanuatu, using structures that minimized tax obligations.

    If I am contracting in the US, can I use an company in an offshore entity (Bahamas?) to minimize my tax obligation?

    Any advice or where I can ask these questions greatly appreciated... thanks!!
  2. No one?

    I also meant to add I need the structure to manage trading of US Equities and Hang Seng Futures trades.

    I read somewhere I can set up a company in the Bahamas to minimize (not avoid!) tax on income derived in the US.

    Can anyone clarify or point me in the right direction to find more info?
