Purchasing property and other assets through offshore companies is an attractive solution for many due to the financial and fiscal advantages it may offer the buyer. However, the use of offshore company structures, particularly those domiciled in grey or black-listed jurisdictions, has been a cause of concern for regulatory authorities due to the associated risks and implications.

At the Gibro Group, we understand the risks and implications of holding assets, including property, in companies domiciled in grey or blacklisted jurisdictions.

Grey and blacklisted jurisdictions are territories identified as having weak or non-existent regulatory frameworks, making them attractive for money laundering, tax evasion, and other illicit activities. 

Companies with links to these territories could face higher fees, more regulatory scrutiny and potential sanctions.
