Shell Company Research

July 2, 2013

This artice, Terrorists Inc., published in the BYU Today magazine in the Spring 2013 issue was just brought to my attention. While I am not a fan of current legislative proposals to deal with the abuse of shell companies, the problem does need to be addressed, especially before over-reactions result in laws the unduly interfere with the legitimate uses of shell companies and privacy. The best way to be sure that your business model or structure doesn’t look like a criminal enterprise is to consult an attorney, and to be sure that someone (be it the attorney, registered agent or the state) has access to information about the beneficial owners.
