SET UP AND MANAGEMENT OF A FOUNDATION OR FOUNDATION FUND
Foundation or foundation fund is considered as an association of assets, namely movable, immovable, financial and intangible for a specific purpose. A foundation is registered and regulated by the Charity Commision for England and Wales. A foundation fund is not established for the purpose of business and the use of the assets must be governed by the conditions laid down in the social contract or the founding charter. A foundation can be set up with assets value of at least £5000. The endowment may include movable and immovable assets, securities and money. Revenues from those assets are exempt from tax and the foundation may participate in the business of joint stock companies.
Foundations are part of the tax planning of each responsible holder and asset administrator. It depends very much on a properly chosen jurisdiction, where you can have a foundation.
Foundations are usually not subject to tax, however all depends on each indivual jurisdiction’s rules and regulations. It is necessary to monitor tax and legal framework of each jurisdiction to ensure you are kept informed about any changes within them.
A foundation is an excellent asset management tool, it has a legal personality, and assets embedded in a foundation are protected by investment treaties. With a foundation, you will separate assets from the original founder, but you can manage them. Another interesting advantage is also privacy protection. Assets embedded in a foundation fund are separate from the depositor. As the owner of the assets, the foundation is mentioned, also in all registers. The specific conditions for managing a foundation may vary, but in general the foundation's profits are not subject to taxation, and the tax liability does not apply to the transfer of assets to a foundation. However, once you place your asset into the foundation's wealth, it will forever be an asset of the foundation and will not be returned to the depositor even if the foundation is cancelled.
