The British Virgin Islands is a Tax Haven dream!

The Best Tax Haven Property Investment Is?

Tax is, quite simply, one of those things that the vast majority of us have to deal with as we grow older. Though it may not be the most enjoyable thing to deal with, it simply must be done. Failure to deal with tax can have some quite serious consequences, therefore making it really quite important. As investors, quite often we look for tax havens. A tax haven can be defined as a place with low effective rates of taxation for foreign investors. These sorts of places allow us to maximise profits and revenue, thus allowing us to earn more. Finding a tax haven can be quite difficult sometimes, so let us briefly have a look at some of the best tax havens for property investment.

One place that is often labeled as a tax haven is the British Virgin Islands. These islands have no personal tax on personal income, meaning that you needn’t lose money. What is more, taxation on property is relatively good; foreign investors must simply pay a 12 per cent tax when aiming to purchase or sell a property. For these reasons, the British Virgin Islands can be considered as a tax haven.

The Channel Islands are also considered to be a tax haven by some experts. This largely due to the fact that new buyers are given a reduced income tax cap upon their first four years of purchasing a property. This is really helpful for investors, and so the Channel Islands truly deserve the label of a tax haven.

These are just two examples of tax havens across the globe. If you are looking for a tax haven, make sure you look thoroughly so that you can benefit as much as possible from your investment.

The Dubai real estate market is booming!

Dubai Property Investment Massively on the Rise

Dubai is a place of extreme beauty and immense wealth. It is home to some of the world’s most famous buildings and attractions – the Burj Khalifa and the Burj Al Arab to name but a few. With this in mind, I think it is fair to say that a trip to Dubai is going to be high up on some of your lists. Naturally, you want to visit this place, in order to experience the mesmerizing things that it has to offer. This does not mean, however, that you will want to live there. Living in Dubai seems expensive. In spite of this, property investment in Dubai seems to be on the rise in some cases. Let us, therefore, briefly explore cases in which property investment is on the rise and potential reasons behind the rise(s) in property investment.

According to some sources, property transactions in Dubai have risen as of late. Between June and August, there were 8833 property transaction sales, which is most certainly higher than in previous years. One reason for this increase was that more people could afford to live in Dubai due to the provision of more affordable houses. In addition, new payment schemes have meant that investors and consumers can pay for their property over a longer period of time, therefore making it more affordable.

Despite these increases in property investment, we must naturally ask a few questions. Firstly, we must question whether or not this increase in property investment is sustainable. If it is not, then the consequences on the economy and housing market could be quite destructive. What is more, we must also ask whether these are the best offers across the globe. If they are not, investors may look for other more lucrative opportunities.

In summary, it is good news that the Dubai property market is booming, and that investment is on the rise. We must, however, ensure that this investment is going to be long-term, in order to maintain the strength of the economy of Dubai.
