What is New Zealand like as a country to set-up a Trust and Look Through Company in?

Asked in Company Formation for New Zealand

Interested in setting up a trust and IBC in New Zealand.

Our preferred jurisdiction should not only be safeguarding its Trusts and IBCs (in terms of confidentiality etc.) in the short-term, but have the express intention of doing so rigorously in the medium term as well.

Does anybody have any feedback on New Zealand versus more popular jurisdictions in the region such as Hong Kong, Singapore and Labuan please?

My thinking is that New Zealand may have more of an "onshore" mindset and the current privacy laws etc. may be chipped away at over the coming years?

New Zealand is NOT your best choice. Has MLAT and TIEA with specially USA and UK, and direct FINCEN information exchanges.You can use nominees, but they are legislated to identify you. And given the increasing daily borrowings from the world bank-even more control is to be complied with. As a country it may look good because of the geographic isolation-yet in fact is and always has been a second rate player in the 'world' financial system.
Nice place for a holiday-not the worst in the world to live in, definitely not a place to establish your financial centre, or in fact a subsidiary( CFC) laws.

BEWARE: Do not use most of all these Private Money Lender here, there are not genuine and trustworthy mostly if they have a free email account i.e. yahoo, gmail, hotmail, live etc, that should arose your suspicion and be very cautious. If they have telephone number with international dialing codes from Nigeria (Africa ) & India then you have to beware. A genuine lender would have a legitimate website, personalized email address/account and not a free email account. I recommend anyone looking for a trusted/relaible lender to visit: CHESHIRE LOAN COMPANY LTD BASED IN THE UK & USA their credibility speaks for them far more in the industry than other lenders whom put up advertisement here to lure loan seekers out of their hard earned money.
