Protect your assets - own a Dominican Company

Like any other strategy to protect your assets and gain tax advantages, the main goal of asset protection is
the separation of personal property from the benefical owner. As your assets are not in your name, they cannot
be taken away from you if a lawsuit arises or if someone wishes to attach your property for some reason.
In essence you do not own the property, a completely separate entity does.  Dominican civil law often provides for
a stronger legal backing when it comes to certain types of possible assaults on your assets.  Investors faced with
a Divorce action, or other types of civil suits, will certainly find better protection under the Dominican Civil Law
Court system. But this is not the only real benefit of a Dominican Company.
Owning your Dominican Republic Vacation property, real estate or investments via an incorporated company
also provides huge tax advantages. Title transfer tax can be reduced using certain strategies with a
Dominican  Company as the owner of your property.  In addition, when it come time to sell your property,
a savings on capital gains is also possible.
