Captive Management

DOMICILES

Choice of domicile impacts many things including types of captive business plans allowable, minimum start-up capital and surplus required, the level of regulatory compliance requirements and supervision, frequency and costs of regulatory examinations, and varying levels of fees, costs and applicable taxes.

However, among the primary reasons noted by many captive owners is the major advantage that relates to legislative requirements which typically are far less onerous than those of onshore competitors when it comes to the margin of solvency and initial capitalization. Other advantages include flexibility, ease and speed of entry, established infrastructure, cost savings and potential tax advantages.
