How It Works 

HFS makes the process of going offshore simple and convenient, minimizing your legwork and maximizing HFS’s expertise. This is how it works:

Step 1. Create your offshore plan. HFS's Offshore Planning Center makes it easy.

In minutes, and completely anonymously, you may create an offshore plan tailored specifically to your needs. The customized plan may then be saved and reviewed later or purchased online or offline. You may also contact HFS and we will be happy to suggest a plan to suit your needs and answer any questions that you may have.

Step 2. Place your order.

Once you have decided on an offshore plan you may place an order online. If you prefer to fax or mail in an order you may download a printable order form. You may also contact HFS directly and place an order over the phone.

Step 3. Sit back and relax.

HFS now goes to work forming your offshore structure. HFS incorporates the offshore company, forms the trust, assembles the bank account application papers (and brokerage, if applicable) and assigns an offshore address. The order is then shipped via Federal Express and an email shipment notification, including the tracking information, is sent to you. The package will contain the original IBC and trust documents and the IBC’s offshore mail forwarding address. All of these are yours to keep.

Step 4. Complete the bank application, and return it to HFS.

The package sent by HFS will also contain a bank account application (and brokerage, if applicable) that is partially completed. The application comes with instructions and will need to be completed, signed and returned to HFS. The application is highlighted in each place that needs to be filled in (e.g. with the client’s address) or signed. This makes the forms simple to complete. Feel free to contact HFS with any questions that arise when completing the application.

Step 5. Sit back and relax.

After receiving the completed application(s) back from the client, HFS prepares the corporate documents required by the offshore bank (and brokerage, if applicable). The application and corporate documents are then sent to the bank via Federal Express and an email shipment notification, including the tracking information, is sent to you.

Step 6. Place your assets offshore.

When the offshore bank (and brokerage, if applicable) receives the package from HFS, the account will be opened. The bank will notify you via an email or phone call (depending on the bank and the client’s preference) that the account has been opened. You may then move money into the offshore account(s). The process is now complete; your assets are secure.
