Taxation and Economic Substance Requirements

With the introduction of economic substance requirements in a number of offshore jurisdictions, economic substance and local taxation matters have become increasingly important in Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey.

To help businesses ensure compliance with economic substance requirements, our teams conduct substance audits on existing structures, procedures and documents to help identify any issues both in terms of an initial audit of compliance and on an ongoing basis.

We work closely with businesses to provide practical and privileged advice and tailored solutions to help remedy any gaps or other issues that could prevent compliance with economic substance requirements.

We have also developed a set of tools for clients to ascertain whether the economic substance requirements could apply to their businesses. To access these tools and our jurisdictional-specific substance resources or to learn more about our taxation and economic substance services, please select the relevant jurisdiction from the panel below.

As well as providing substance guidance, our lawyers also deliver practical and privileged advice to clients on a range of other taxation matters, including tax residence, income tax, FATCA, the OECD’s Common Reporting Standard (CRS) and tax disputes.

To find out more about how we can help, please contact one of our taxation and economic substance lawyers.
