The first is that China’s rich has a natural sense of trust in China’s professional service providers, such as trust companies, private banks, and lawyers, and therefore, they are more willing to entrust their asset management to onshore trust companies. Moreover, they often lack trust in and feel uneasy when allocating trust assets with foreign companies because of differences in language, culture and laws.
The second factor is that onshore trusts can be set up quite simply with lower establishment and management costs, and without involving the selection of offshore territories and application of offshore laws.
The third factor is that onshore trusts also have the function of asset isolation and wealth inheritance. There are no explicit regulations on family trusts (private trusts) within Chinese law. This also means that the legal effects of this trust structure is not denied by Chinese law and an onshore trust established under the guidance of professional lawyers will also have the same effects on asset isolation and inheritance.
ambien 10 mg in women The most significant relationship principle is an important reference criterion for establishing family trusts.
Which should China’s rich choose, an offshore trust or an onshore trust? The one that best suits your needs is best for you, and China’s HNWIs should make their decision according to their own situations and demands.
The most significant relationship principle is the most important reference point in choosing whether to establish an offshore or an onshore trust. For example, if the assets you plan to place within your trust are in Singapore and the nationality of your beneficiaries (children, spouse and others) is also Singaporean, then it is a good idea to set up your trust in Singapore; or if you are desperate for asset isolation and wealth inheritance and can bear the costly establishment and maintenance expenses of offshore trusts, offshore trusts may be a better choice. (An OIL in Shanghai specializing in offshore trusts stated that the establishment of an offshore trust costs USD 10,000, and management cost for trusts below USD 20 million was USD 10,000. Maybe you don’t think it’s high, but the management cost is not a once-off, and needs to be paid every year for 20-50 years or longer.)
Similarly, if you have a lot of money in China, and both you and your beneficiary's nationality is Chinese, then it is recommended that you set up an onshore trust.
