The OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) CRS is a big step towards a globally coordinated approach to disclosure of income earned by individuals and organizations. As a measure to counter tax evasion, it builds upon other information sharing legislation, such as FATCA (the US Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) and the European Union (EU) Savings Directive.
Mauritius, and without any doubt, is now positioned as a leading international business centre. This is the result of a combination of factors: the vision of our leaders, constant investment and effort over the years and implementing a well defined national strategy. From an agriculture based economy, the island has successfully transformed itself into a…
Foreigners who work in Mauritius need to abide by the Immigration Act as far as their residence is concerned. The employer has the responsibility of ensuring that all required Laws are respected. Work and residence can be considered as two separate things and both call for distinct procedures to be followed. Basically one needs to get approval to work (through a work permit for example) and based on this approval, you are then allowed to stay and work in Mauritius. This permission to stay comes in the form of a residence permit. The work permit scheme is regulated under the labour law and the Immigration Act. The scheme caters for employees with a salary not exceeding Rs45,000 a month.
Penguin Random House, the largest book publisher in the world, is chopping off its self-publishing arm. The company said Tuesday (Jan. 5) that it has sold Author Solutions—the self-publishing author-tools platform that it bought in 2012—to an unnamed affiliate of US private equity firm Najafi Companies for an undisclosed sum. "With this sale, we reaffirm our focus on consumer book publishing through...
Why? By the numbers, self-publishing should be a lucrative endeavor.In 2015, author-published books accounted for 18% of the entire book market in the US; the industry’s growth is staggering, and some firms predict the business could eventually get as big as $52 billion.
Publishing companies have been having a hard time lately, though. Despite steady book sales, there has not been much growth in the industry recently—and running self-publishing services like Author Solutions doesn’t yield as much profit as signing traditional contracts with writers. Analysts told the Financial Times that Penguin Random House likely sold the company for a fraction of the $116 million it paid in 2012.

One fund company that I like for my clients is Vanguard. Vanguard is the world’s largest fund company, with about $2.4 trillion (yes, that’s trillion) invested in the U.S. across more than 170 different funds. One Vanguard fund I like in particular for my clients is the Vanguard REIT ETF. This ETF (exchange-traded fund) invests in US real estate investment trusts that own office buildings, hotels and other properties. The Vanguard REIT ETF was formed in 2004 and today has $44.1 billion in assets. Had you invested $10k at inception in 2004, you would be sitting on $23,978 today. That’s an annual return of 9.29% over the past ten years. Currently this fund pays a dividend of 3.7%. I called Vanguard yesterday and asked them how many of their funds in the past 10 years have gone out of business, they said, “zero”!

Company making a killing from the 'hound pound’ @digitalnapoleon
According to Euromonitor International’s World Travel Market global trends report, British hotels could increase revenues by 30% per year if they allowed people to bring their pets.

There are many reasons to admire Iceland, but here is another one: it has just sentenced five senior bankers and one prominent investor to prison for crimes relating to the economic meltdown in 2008. And with these two separate rulings made last month in the Supreme Court and Reykjavik district court, the nation that gambled so heavily on the markets and lost so disastrously in the consequent crash has sent 26 financiers to jail for combined sentences of 74 years.

This 18k gold perpetual calendar Patek Philippe 2497 is one such watch. Offered in the Important Watches auction on 9 November at Christie’s Geneva, it is the one and only known example of this reference bearing a previously never before seen military-style black dial with luminous Arabic numerals and luminous Alpha hands — all these features being unrestored and in original condition.
BDO admitted wrongdoing. It disgorged to the SEC its audit fees and interest totaling $600,000, and paid a $1.5 million penalty.
The five partners also agreed to settle the charges against them.
Two former CEOs of General Employment agreed to settle separate charges. The SEC's litigation against Pence is ongoing.

Judge Donald Middlebrooks of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida ordered the racketeering, influenced and corrupt organizations, or RICO, case to head to trial January 20, 2016.

Klayman, who has filed dozens of lawsuits against the Clintons and other prominent politicians, suggested the former first couple and their family philanthropy used their political clout to drum up foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation and lavish diplomatic favors for contributors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.
“the awarding of a World Cup shouldn't depend on who pays the highest bribes”
Richard Weber, the United States Internal Revenue Service's (IRS) leader of criminal investigations, told The New York Times he was fairly confident that there would be another round of indictments, following on the 14 FIFA officials accused of racketeering and accepting $150 million in bribes to rig marketing contracts and the selection of the host country for the 2010 World Cup.

They showed shareholders a scary chart revealing that leverage levels in debt-funded companies have been edging back up towards 2007 levels. On average, the first lien debt is about 4.5x Ebitda and the second lien about 0.4x Ebitda, just as it was in 2007, only the next tier of ‘other debt’ is lower so that total debt/Ebitda ratios are about 5.3x vs close to 6x in 2007.
That is the biggest worry for me, despite five years of austerity and recovery, the basic cause of the problems in 2008/09 – excessive borrowing – has not been addressed. If anything, the situation seems to be worse now that every major central bank’s balance sheet is stuffed full of government and corporate debt.

'I’m going to share something personal with you: I feel like a complete idiot.
Back in December, my team and I made an investment recommendation to members of our premium service, Sovereign Man: Confidential (SMC).
Our view was that China’s economy is in for serious trouble, and we devised a clever way to profit from China’s decline while at the same time limiting our downside risk.
Now, lucrative investment recommendations are a regular part of SMC (in addition to boots on the ground offshore intelligence). And we’ve had plenty of home runs for our members.
But this one takes the cake. Our recommendation is up over 300% in less than three months.
This is great news for our members. But there’s just one problem:
I missed it.
I didn’t invest in my own recommendation.
I honestly have no excuse. I just got busy… it was December, family came in for the holidays, mom broke her arm, dog died... the whole nine yards.
LIFE got in the way. I know you’ve been there before.
But here’s the good news.
My team and I have poured over this, and we’re convinced that this trade has only just begun.
It’s pretty clear that China is going to be the world’s dominant economic power over the long-term. But right now the Chinese economy is in a world of pain.
That pain is just getting started, and there’s a lot more in store.
We’ve done the calculations. If China’s economy (and currency) get anywhere close to the levels that their own government is predicting, our trade can easily double from here.
Bottom line, there’s plenty of room to still make money on this trade. So I’m getting in… especially since we’re about to release a brand new way to profit from this trend.
But before I do that, I want to give you a head start. I figure that there are a lot of other people in the same boat as me.
You’re currently not a member of SMC. I understand. Again, maybe life got in the way. Or maybe you just felt like SMC wasn’t right for you at the time.
Given what’s on the table, though, I urge you to let me put this research in your hands.
That’s why I’ve decided to wait one more week before making the trade myself.
I want to ensure that others who haven’t joined us yet have the opportunity to get a copy of this research and make the trade before I do.
(And yes, SMC members will also know well in advance if I sell, so you’ll have a head start to get out as well.)
To make this a no-brainer decision for you, we’ve put together an extremely compelling offer for you to join us.
But just like our investment recommendation, this special offer is time sensitive.
Don’t let life get in the way this time—you’re not going to want to miss out on this one.
Find out more about how high I think this recommendation can go.
P.S. My priority right now is making sure that all of our new and existing members have the chance to invest ahead of me.
That’s why I need to close out this special offer ASAP, so that my team can start sending out the updated recommendation right away.
Please don’t get left behind—this promotion will end tomorrow. '
