Trusts and Foundations
In recent years, there has been a growing need to take proactive steps to protect personal, business and family wealth from the impact of business ventures breakdown, succession disputes and misappropriation of assets. This is often done through the use of trusts and similar asset holding vehicles such as foundations. The choice of both vehicle and jurisdiction is vital, as is a deep understanding of the family and the governance issues involved. Having said that, Labuan trusts and foundations are getting more popular as a structure for families to use but it is important to make the trust or the foundation work for you and your personal circumstances. Equally, your interests may suit a more commercial structure such as a Labuan partnership or Labuan company. In some complex cases a tailor made structure might combine all of these elements.
In a landscape of ever-increasing regulation and complexity due various risks, the impact is that the Labuan regulators are tightening the laws and regulations on financial business services in order to meet the international standards, and impose reporting obligations to all Labuan licensed entities. This is vital in order to safeguard the business ecology, to show greater tax transparency, keep repute of Labuan as a safe destination for international financial services and protect Malaysia's reputation as a whole.

We offer back-office processing support, data input and deliver the reports to you for submission on time to Labuan FSA as well as the IRB. We keep all sensitive information confidential at all times in accordance with the data protection laws in Malaysia.
