A big reason for choosing offshore stock brokers over your average brokerage down the road is the potential savings on taxes. If you make a lot of money trading stocks, you will have to pay your appropriate taxman. If you trade overseas as an ex-pat, it may be possible to benefit from different tax laws.

Because there is money to be made trading with offshore stock brokers, sometimes you will find the commissions higher. It is easy to justify a higher commission if you are saving a lot of money on taxes. Everybody likes to win when they trade; nobody likes to pay the taxes on the winnings. Some might say they hope it's your biggest problem!

Another benefit of offshore stock brokers is that they have the knowledge about international markets. They have licenses to trade in markets your local broker may not be able to trade in. Even if your local broker is able to trade abroad, he may not have the knowledge and experience to be effective. Offshore stockbrokers are used to trading in many different countries on behalf of their clients.

Choosing Offshore Stock Brokers

Speak with an expert in the field of offshore brokerage services. You must understand the laws regarding trading abroad and taxation. There are plenty of experts familiar with counseling ex-pats who want to benefit from lower taxes when trading. Remember that what you save in taxes when you win, you lose in the write off when you lose!
