Why Delaware?

Delaware is known for its corporate law or corporate tax haven due to its corporate legislation. Only due to the convention to exclude double taxation, certain tax deductions are implemented. Otherwise, with the discovery of the undeclared funds stored offshore, the tax authorities will initiate tax evasion proceedings. Therefore, US citizens are more likely to benefit from favorable tax areas in their own country, such as Delaware, where only one- fifth of their income is generated from franchise taxes (fixed annual fee). Delaware, although not a classic in terms of understanding the offshore province or jurisdiction, but a number of tax exemptions allow states to classify as either one of the largest corporate tax havens around the world. 

The tax on the income of a company actually operating in Delaware is 8.7%.

Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) Corporations (corporations- C-corporation and S-corporation) Partnerships – in particular it is closer to a Limited Liability Company.

For example, a trademark holder registers a company in Delaware, gives companies in other states the right to use their trademark for a fee, and receives fees or royalties for which they do not pay any taxes.

Franchise tax (not to be confused with franchising) – taxes levied, unlike some other states, are quite high in Delaware, which accounts for 1/5 of the state budget. The franchise tax is not calculated from the company’s profit, but is calculated from net income – that is, tax liabilities are calculated on the positive difference that arises after all deductions are applied to both companies and individuals. This type of tax also determines the absence of profit tax. In states with high-profit taxes, franchise tax rates are usually lower.

The Delaware tax system has been widely criticized even in the United States, especially for its many shell companies, due to weak legal regulations in identifying the real or real owner (beneficiary) when registering a company in the USA, which has been linked to several scandals. However, it continues to be a favorable and effective area for business development.
