Avoiding income tax on worldwide sales - The double Irish?


Does anyone know more about the "Double Irish" Structure to avoid paying income tax for worldwide profits. 100% of the revenues of my company are made oversees. I export physical products oversees. I am referring to the same structure used by Google and other multinational companies that made the news a while back. How do I set one up for myself?

  • Yes, Google works fine, but the question was how to set one up... Which I hope the answer (for this site) is: you are too small. – Alain Raynaud 12 years ago
  • No, the question wa whether anyone knows more than the name, NOT how to set it up. That was an end point. As you can read in my link this is mostly for non physical goods, so it does not apply to you at all. – Net Tecture 12 years ago
  • Well the reason I came here was to get more than a google search or a wikipedia link. I have in fact, read the first 25 pages of google results regarding this. And yes, the question was for more information about the subject... more that can readily be found online. – Alexandre H. Tremblay 12 years ago
  • Then ask a lawyer and an accountnat.. The wikipedial ink gave ME all the information to make a decision to use it or not - nice little sheme. – Net Tecture 12 years ago
