GOLDEN VISA SERVICES

INTERNATIONAL TAX PLANNING

GAMING CONSULTANCY

  • Providing adequate advice on the gaming legal and regulatory framework in several jurisdictions, in particular:

  • in Macau - our Founding Partner and CEO, Jorge Costa Oliveira, is one of the foremost world experts on Gaming Law, having planned and implemented the strategy that transformed Macau into the world's main gaming center.

  • in several Asian jurisdictions where we have been working for years.

  • in Brazil, where we may assist companies that are considering  operating in this new emerging market. 

  • Assisting companies in their International Fiscal Planing, in particular:

  • Advising on the advantages of specific jurisdictions such as: (i) The Netherlands for holdings income; (ii) Luxembourg for financial services; (iii) the Madeira International Business Centre (MIBC); and (iv) Macau as alternative or complementary jurisdictions for inputting services.

  • We may provide expert assistance for companies that are interested in using Macau as their corporate hub; Macau is a free city with no restrictions in the flows of capital and services, no customs levies (except on cars, alcohol, tobacco) and low taxation, both on corporations and on physical persons; moreover, it is one of the few jurisdictions on the planet where the government enjoys an affluent  revenue (mainly from gaming taxes) with reiterated surplus on public finances;thus the Macau Government is quite complacent on tax matters, particularly as concerns SMEs.
