What is offshore company? 

Offshore companies are legal entities registered in countries or territories with favorable tax regimes outside the residence of the shareholders and directors of this company. 

Depending on the fiscal policy of each country an offshore company registered on its territory might be a subject to 0 or very low income tax duties. Usually this type of companies is not obliged to submit annual accounting records or hold shareholders meetings. 

Registering an offshore company is 100% legal and this term should be used when we speak about tax saving and not tax evasion. We live in a competitive world where each company tries to produce and sell more, but at the same time trying to minimize the costs and expenses related to the business activity. Personal tax planning that can be created for an offshore company helps to reduce tax obligations significantly and as a result helps to create a competitive advantage. The most common examples of offshore jurisdictions are Panama, Belize, Anguilla, Vanuatu, Bahrain, Costa Rica and Seychelles.  

However, not all individuals choose tax havens for setting up a company for its future commercial activities. Searching for a better reputation for its business some entrepreneurs choose onshore company registration.

Also, you have mentioned the possibility to deposit cash on your corporate account.
