The World's Best Tax Havens
by Lee Hadnum

This book provides a fascinating insight into the glamorous world of tax havens.

The first half contains indispensable information on 25 of the world's best tax havens – from the exotic Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands and Monaco, to less well-known but highly attractive tax havens like Cyprus, Malta and the Isle of Man.


Inside you'll find out how you can:

  • Obtain residence in a number of beautiful countries which have 0% tax.

  • Invest in property hotspots which have no income tax, capital gains tax or inheritance tax.

  • Run a successful business from a country which has 0% corporation tax.

The second half of the book explores how big companies and the rich use tax havens and how, with proper planning, you too could legally enjoy some of these benefits. You'll find out how to go about setting up offshore companies, trusts and foundations and how these useful structures could help you lower your taxes or protect your hard-earned money from the outside world.


This is the only book of its kind and, as with all Taxcafe guides, The World's Best Tax Havens is written in clear English with plenty of examples and tax planning tips. You'll find out all about:

  • How tax havens can help you pay less of the four 'Big Taxes': income tax, capital gains tax, inheritance tax and corporation tax.

  • The best European tax havens, including one just 80 miles from the UK which has no capital gains tax, inheritance tax or company tax and is opening its arms to UK residents.

  • A Mediterranean tax haven where property is booming, the cost of living is low and there is no capital gains tax or tax on investment income.

  • Two beautiful Mediterranean islands where UK pensions are taxed at just 5% and 15% respectively.
