    As more and more jurisdictions open to foreign trade, companies can gain access to large pool of resources abroad. They can establish relationships with foreign partners and move their production to foreign locations or simply export their products to new markets. IT and software development businesses also seek to benefit from moving the production to foreign jurisdictions.

    Generally, the main benefit for moving the software development abroad is lower costs in comparison to the home-country. For example, the cost of developing exactly the same software is 50% less in India if compared to the US. The savings generally come from lower labour costs, but moving the IT and software production abroad can also broaden company’s access to a wider pool of labour with higher skills and expertise. This might explain why 50% of American Fortune 500 businesses are using offshore IT and software development. Let us look at some of the jurisdictions where opening a software development business might be more beneficial in comparison to others and discuss the reasons why.

    India has long been one of the preferred outsourcing software development destinations for leading multinational companies around the world. This means that one of the biggest benefits of choosing India for your IT and software development business would be a multinational demand for outsourced software development services. Meanwhile, the company would enjoy relatively lower labour costs, wide pool of skilled labour and business-friendly environment with the government that promotes start-ups and small businesses. Additionally, due to favourable policy and economic initiatives by the Indian government, IT industry is expected to grow in early to mid-teens for the next few years.

    United Kingdom
    London was recently described as the city that offers the most opportunities to businesses and ranked first for technology readiness. While low labour costs will not be one of the benefits of setting up a software development company in London, there are several other benefits that might compensate for relatively higher wages. Numerous hubs and incubators offer an environment for new start-ups and small businesses with all the necessary functions and support for less than 300 GBP per month. Also the government is committed to support software development and technology sector with such organizations as Tech City UK and Innovate UK with an aim to accelerate the growth of IT businesses. Meanwhile, various tax benefits are available to IT and software development companies in London. Other benefits to consider are skilled workforce and high-speed internet access.

    Eastern Europe is becoming increasingly attractive for IT and software development companies with Poland ranking as the number one Eastern European country. While Poland cannot offer as low labour costs as those in India, it can offer other benefits such as proximity to Western Europe and ability to find common working hours with the rest of the world. Poland also shares a cultural affinity with the Western world as well as other Eastern countries. It is also believed to provide better product quality and business environment in comparison to lower-cost destinations for software development businesses.

    More jurisdictions to consider for registering an IT business can be found on each continent – each with their own benefits and peculiarities:

    Americas: Brazil, Argentina and Chile;
    Asia/Pacific: China;
    Europe: Romania, Belarus and Ukraine.
    Above countries have large enough populations to have wide labour pool and good education systems to produce skilled software developers. Business risks in these countries are manageable and costs are reasonable in comparison to US, Canada and Western Europe.

    It is important to remember, that while a particular jurisdiction can be considered to be the best place for incorporating an IT company for one entrepreneur, it may be unsuitable for another one. Consider the necessities that your business is most interested in. It can be a language, geographical location, regulation of particular activities, skilled workforce or costs.

  • Shelf company acquisition in LatviaDatum27.12.2022 10:06
    Thema von MartinRoberts im Forum Dies ist ein Forum in...

    A company in Latvia is a great alternative to offshore companies as numerous changes in regulations and laws have been passed by the Latvian government in recent years. Companies in Latvia attract foreign entrepreneurs and investors who are looking for a sustainable and developing business structure and an opportunity to use multiple tax optimization options for their companies.

    While there is an option to start your own business, there is another alternative - you can buy an already existing business. A company that was established some time ago and is currently inactive is known as a shelf or readymade company. Shelf companies are either 'clean', meaning there has never been a transaction in that company since inception, or a company with its own history, meaning it has an operational and financial history.

    Advantages of acquiring a shelf company
    Clean businesses are usually formed for a single purpose, only to be sold after some time. The key advantage of such a shelf company is that the new owner of the company can be absolutely sure that he has no debts or other liabilities to the previous owners. Meanwhile, companies that have previously operated may have some liabilities, and investors should conduct their own due diligence to ensure they are not buying a shelf company with high levels of debt. Still, even companies with an operational history have their own advantages. For example, a ready-made business with a pre-existing history is more credible and easier to get a loan or even open a bank account. Some manufacturers, as well as governments, prefer to do business with a company that excels in durability.

    Compared to an opportunity to start your own business, the shelf company might be the right strategy for the following reasons:

    Urgency – Starting a new business requires time and resources. If you want to start trading as quickly as possible, a shelf company allows you to start trading almost immediately after purchasing the shares.
    Image and Credibility - Recently registered companies often seem unreliable to do business with. A shelf company that was registered some time ago now helps to create a reliable image.
    Compliance with formal requirements - in some cases, a company must be of a certain age in order to acquire certain business projects.
    Process of a shelf company acquisition
    The process of acquiring a shelf company in Latvia is a relatively straightforward process and is usually taken care of by the service provider you have chosen to purchase a shelf company from. The limited liability company is the most common legal form in Latvia, as its shareholders do not assume any personal liability for the company's debts other than from the invested capital. In general, shelf companies in Latvia are provided with an active registration number, a VAT number, no previous activity and an already registered share capital of EUR 2,800. The latter can vary with different service providers and you should be aware of this before choosing your shelf company.

    The acquisition of the Latvian shelf company can be carried out either by arranging a notary appointment or by remote issuance of a power of attorney digitally signed with an electronic signature. As a rule, all documents are created by the service provider and the client only needs copies of the partners’ passports, the residential addresses and the new company name (if desired) and contact details. When all the documents are ready and signed by the service provider, they submit the application to the Trade Register, where it takes up to 5 business days to process all the changes. For an additional fee it is possible to speed up the process to 1 business day. After the commercial register has processed the changes, the service provider forwards all legal documents to the new shareholders and your company can start operations.
