Spitz & Clarke Offshore Service

This content is unique to LexisNexis


This service provides detailed commentary on each of the major offshore jurisdictions and brings together relevant legislation, as well as texts and summaries of relevant cases. Practitioners from leading law firms within each jurisdiction have contributed to the work.

It also covers all material necessary to enable the tax practitioner to assess the relative advantages and disadvantages of various tax havens.

Organised alphabetically for ease of reference, the Offshore Service is updated five times per annum ensuring the most current information is always to hand.
