The countries of the European Union usually maintain anti-double taxation agreements with many other countries in the world; there are many tax savings which can be found here. Brand recognition and prestige are other factors to consider a non-resident company in Europe.
Under special conditions, a company established in various countries in the European Union offer low tax arrangements and confidentiality.
Some European countries also offer wonderful immigration options and tax incentives. Sure, the ubber rich celebrities may choose Switzerland or Monaco but there are also options for 'normal' people.
