I've read NR's writings and to be honest know little about companies/trusts etc. During the Asset Accumulation Phase of one's lifetime, would it make sense to register a company in a no or low tax country and buy assets in that companies' name? As far as I see it, if early retirement is your goal you are better off deferring the tax for the future when you need the income. For the next x years while you are still working, your person doesn't want to see the income from your investments at all as you will be taxed on that income. Am I barking up the wrong tree or is this worth looking into?
