Tax optimization for properties with low book value

We will help you to optimize the IIT or CIT
Digital technologies are one of the priority areas of the AIFC.
In construction, cash payments prevail and due to the lack of closing accounting documents, not all cash costs were borne by the book value of the property. Accordingly, on sale, a difference arises between the book and market value. How to optimize the IIT or CIT in such cases?

AIFC participants are exempt from value-added tax on shares and dividends from AIFC participants. This approach allows you to optimize taxes on assets and real estate, where the book and market values can differ greatly. In Western countries, Special Project Companies have a single activity similar to a holding activity, i.e. ownership of assets. It is easier and more profitable for owners to sell shares in the SPC than to sell the rights to real estate, the movement of which may result in various taxes.
SPC Taxation
SPCs are not taxed, as they have the purpose of owning assets, i.e. they cannot engage in any other commercial activity. It is much easier to sell shares in SPC than all real estate. Since SPC does not have a director and a physical address, the administration is carried out by licensed consulting companies (Company service providers). Our company has such a license and we are ready to optimize your taxes.
