Benefits of companies
Companies are useful tools in estate and tax planning and can be used for a wide range of purposes, for example, as investment and holding vehicles for real estate, investment portfolios, intellectual property rights and other assets. No matter where assets are situated, they can all be held by a single legal entity, which can continue in existence for an unlimited period.
