The offshore industry in Cayman” says a distinguished commentator, “is feeling poor and beaten down.” You would not think so from the assembly of offshore top brass assembling at The Ritz-Carlton on the 6 – 8 December for the meeting of the International Tax Planning Association – the first of its kind in the Cayman Islands.
From the local speakers – Timothy Ridley, Nicholas Butcher, Justin Appleyard and Andrew Miller, visitors are to have an overview of (and local attendees a revision course on) the specially attractive offshore facilities on offer.
These are examined from the point of view of United States and Latin-American taxpayers by Florida attorneys Rahul Ranadive and Steven L Cantor.
The well-known lecturer and international tax specialist Marshall Langer discusses how the IRS gets information from Caribbean jurisdictions, and Milton Grundy, the President of the Association, concludes the meeting with a talk on tax-saving opportunities (and tax pitfalls) for the Cayman company or trust engaged in making investments or doing business abroad.
Members of the ITPA will be coming from Anguilla, Austria, Bahamas, Belgium, Canada, Hong Kong, Hungary, Malta, Netherlands, St. Lucia, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States. Proceedings begin with a reception at the Ritz Carlton at 6.30pm on Sunday, 6 December, and continue for the next two days.
