Offshore company in Canada

December 9, 2020

Canada is a country with a fairly strict taxation system. The income of ordinary Canadian companies is taxed worldwide. Accordingly, they do not have any signs related to tax or offshore structures, and in any case they are prestigious. However, the laws of Canada offer the possibility of registering and using Canadian businesses with a zero tax rate. They are known as LP companies.

LP is a Limited Liability Partnership managed by at least 2 partners: General Partner and others – Limited Partners. If a Canadian LP with non-resident members does not conduct business in Canada and does not receive income in Canada, then it is not taxed in Canada, in fact, it is equivalent to an offshore company

Canadian tax law does not treat LP as a separate subject of taxation. Founders (“Partners”) must pay taxes on the profits received by the LP company at their place of residence, in proportion to their shares in LP, if this is provided for by the legislation of that particular country.

Brief information about offshore company registration in Canada

Canadian LP Corporate Taxation

Companies with non-resident partners that do not do business in Canada, do not receive any income from sources in Canada, and that are managed and controlled outside of Canada are exempt from federal and provincial taxes.

Canada Tax Treaties

Offshore LP companies are not considered residents for tax purposes in Canada and therefore are not eligible to use the treaties for the avoidance of double taxation between Canada and other countries.
