An ever increasing number of Americans are convinced that our country is no longer the land of safety or opportunity when it comes to their money and investments. These people recommend transferring your money to offshore tax havens in such countries as Dubai, Hong Kong, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and Panama. In fact, it has recently been estimated that nearly 60 percent of the world s money is located in offshore accounts. Legal Off Shore Tax Havens will show you how to protect your money and remain legal while doing so. Off shore tax havens are sovereign nations that have laws in place that protect people s financial privacy, assets, and cash. In this new, exhaustively researched book, you will find out how to take advantage of this system. You will learn how the system works, how to develop business opportunities, how to avoid excessive taxation and regulation, how to bank and invest off shore, how to find the tax haven that is right for you, and how to avoid scams. In addition, you will learn about the safest, most private nations, the best off shore banks and tax havens, what is and what is not legal, the best haven for your specific purposes, mistakes to avoid, legal issues, and basic off shore entities. You will also learn how sophisticated tax avoiders use countries such as Ireland, Austria, and the Netherlands to avoid suspicion; how to use residential tax havens, including Argentina and Costa Rica; and how to use Greece, the Phillipines, and Jordan as completely tax-free havens.

The Politics of the Common Law

Perspectives, Rights, Processes, Institutions

Author: Adam Gearey,Wayne Morrison,Robert Jago

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1135097879

Category: Law

Page: 376

View: 3077

The Politics of the Common Law offers a critical introduction to the legal system of England and Wales. Unlike other conventional accounts, this revised and updated second edition presents a coherent argument, organised around the central claim that contemporary postcolonial common law must be understood as an articulation of human rights and open justice. The book examines the impact of the European Convention and European Union law on the structures and ideologies of the common law and engages with the politics of the rule of law. These themes are read into normative accounts of civil and criminal procedure that stress the importance of due process. The final sections of the book address the reality of civil and criminal procedure in the light of recent civil unrest in the UK and the growing privatisation of public services. The book questions whether it is possible to find a balance between the requirements of economics and the demands of justice.
