There are several basic forms of ‘Captive’ insurance company involving different capital requirements, set up costs and ongoing management input. The appropriateness of each will vary according to the financial tolerances and objectives of the sponsoring business.
The captive must be able to demonstrate that it functions as an Insurer, rather than simply a vehicle for avoiding Tax, so it must be seen to be assuming tangible elements of risk.
It is crucial that a Captive Feasibility Study is undertaken to identify which, if any, format will give you the optimum results.
Whatever type of captive solution is being considered, speak to AIM Risk Services to ensure that it will be Tax efficient and meet your objectives without unforeseen pitfalls.
