Offshore jurisdictions are located all over the world, often their status is reduced to the fact that the business taken out to offshores is distanced from the Ukrainian authorities, and the tax expenses are kept to minimum. There are many advantages of "offshores": the use as intermediary companies in withdrawing funds for tax optimization, fast and free disposal of foreign currency without the control of "domestic" supervisory authorities, protection of assets located in Ukraine and contracts concluded by international law, confidentiality of information about real owners, business structuring, etc.
At the same time, respective jurisdictions are often recognized by international organizations and individual states as those that do not meet their defined criteria for transparent taxation, anti-money laundering, terrorist financing and even pose a threat to the international financial system. This lays the appropriate risks of cooperation with entities from these jurisdictions, and in some cases with related parties and their counterparties as well. First of all, it is so from the point of view of national and international restrictive policies that can be applied to such subjects and/or their partners.
