A limited liability company or a company with limited liability (abbreviated L.L.C. or LLC or W.L.L) in the law of the vast majority of United States jurisdictions is a legal form of business company that provides limited liability * to its owners. Often incorrectly called a “limited liability corporation” (instead of a company), it is a hybrid business entity having certain characteristics of both a corporation and a partnership or sole proprietorship (depending on how many owners there are). An LLC, although a business entity, is a type of unincorporated association and is not a corporation. The primary characteristic an LLC shares with a corporation is a limited liability, and the primary characteristic it shares with a partnership is the availability of pass-through income taxation. It is often more flexible than a corporation and it is well-suited for companies with a single owner.
It is important to understand that limited liability does not imply owners are always fully protected from personal liabilities.

The term Tax Haven is generally used to refer to a jurisdiction: where there are no relevant taxes; where taxes are levied only on internal taxable events, but not at all, or at low tax rates, on profits from foreign sources; or where special tax privileges are granted to certain types of taxable persons or events. Such special tax privileges may be accorded by the domestic internal tax system or may derive from a combination of domestic and treaty provisions. (Where tax benefits are part of an economic development program the term tax incentives is usually used). Simply stated, a tax haven is any country whose laws, regulations, traditions, and, in some cases, treaty arrangements make it possible for one to reduce his overall burden. Tax havens of the world can be broadly classified into six separate categories: no-tax havens (e.g., Anguilla, Bahamas, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Nevis, Turks and Caicos, St. Vincent and Vanuatu); countries taxing only local income (e.g., Costa Rica, Liberia, Panama, Gibraltar, and Hong Kong); low-tax havens with treaty benefits (e.g., the Netherlands, the Netherlands Antilles, British Virgin Islands, Luxembourg, and Singapore); countries offering special privileges (e.g., the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man); tax havens for individuals (e.g., Andorra, Sark, Campione d’Italia and Monaco; tax havens for International Business Companies (e.g., Antigua, Barbados, Grenada, Jamaica, and Montserrat).
Fraudulent or illegal arrangements made with the intention of evading tax, e.g. by failure to make full disclosure to the revenue authorities. The term denotes those activities deliberately undertaken by a taxpayer to attempt to free himself in an illegal manner from the tax to which he is subject. Tax evasion embraces such activities as sham transactions and the falsification of tax returns or of books and accounts. The element of illegality distinguishes tax evasion from tax avoidance.
