[Trust Your Children!]
What can you do to protect all your hard-earned wealth and property? The answer? "Trust" yourself!
What that means is that you can construct a series of offshore trusts and companies into an impregnable wall of defense for your hard-earned assets.
It can be reasonably proven that, in the United States of America, as soon as possible, as soon as a person does any business with a designated "commercial" entity, or as soon as a person becomes designated as a "commercial" entity, an implicit statutory "trust" entity is established for that person, by the title of their capitalized full name, using their Social Security Number as a numerical identifier, and under the jurisdiction of the Uniform Commercial Code (U.C.C.) and
Admiralty Law upon the land: a trust that is legally a fictional, artificial, statutory, de facto entity which has been established by the commercial business industry and which is a legal person/subject that can adhere a private person to obedience of the laws of the jurisdiction under which the trust falls.
This is why the mail that some people receive from commercial entities is often addressed to a commercial capitalized full name, and not a private combined uppercase and lowercase name. Personal and economic sovereignty from the commercial statutory entity can be established by doing all that is possible to close out all activity transacted under that statutory entity, and by establishing other entities under the appropriate jurisdictional venues which better protect a private person and their commercial ventures, and which limit their liability to the jurisdiction of the U.C.C. and Admiralty Law.
The common law of Great Britain and the United States of America has historically afforded an excellent jurisdiction for the establishment of personal sovereignty, through many ground-breaking legal documents such as the Magna Carta, the British Constitution, the American Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and the Constitution for the united States of America and the Bill of Rights. The use of common law (de jure) "trust" instruments which are still available in the United States and in some of the nations of the British Commonwealth, is one of the best methods in the world for people to use as a method of establishing personal economic sovereignty and closing out the statutory "commercial" trust entity that has been established for them.
Tyrannical conditions in the United States of America make the use of "onshore" common law pure trusts a more tenuous effort every day, and American legal trends towards the imposition of statutory jurisdiction onto these trusts threaten the benefits which they once provided. There are some other nations in the world that have better laws in place right now to protect the integrity of their common law and/or commercial entities, and it is within those "offshore" nations that can be found the best common law trust instruments still available to help people lawfully protect their hard-earned assets.
The nation of Belize, located in Central America, and the nation of Grenada, located off the northern coast of South America, are two of the nations with the best laws in the world for the protection of the classic English common law trust and other international business corporation entities, and it must be recommended that people perform the appropriate research to discover if establishing a series of "offshore" trusts and/or international business corporations in Belize and/or Grenada will be able to provide them with the benefits necessary in establishing their own personal economic sovereignty.
Sometimes, when people try to establish their own personal economic sovereignty, they discover that it can take a seemingly unreasonable effort simply to get to a point where they can confidently begin to do what they always expected they could do in life, which sometimes ends up putting well-meaning people into situations that can sometimes be alleged by uninformed people as somehow being the commission of a crime, when it was really an attempt to exercise their rights in the manner which they saw fit without harming anybody else.
Trust; a right of property, a contract between three parties where property is transferred into a named contractual entity by the creator of the trust for the purpose of multiplying, protecting, and distributing the assets of the trust for the benefit of the "beneficiary."
Settlor; the creator of the trust contract and relationship, after transferring property into the trust and providing initial direction regarding its operation, can become removed from the daily activities of the trust and can in the future make requests of the trust through the expression of their "wishes" to the "trustee(s)."
Trustee; the person or people who have been entrusted with the property of the settlor, and who will act on behalf of the "beneficiary" of the trust.
Beneficiary; the person or people or entities that will benefit from the activity and assets of the trust.
Managing Director/General Trust Manager/General Director; the person who manages the day-to-day affairs of the trust. It can be a trustee, or someone appointed by the trustee, or someone requested by the settlor or the beneficiary.
The following is an entity structure that can be used as an ideal solution towards the establishment of personal economic sovereignty and towards the protection of hard-earned assets:
1) Three entities are required; an "operating" entity, a "property" entity, and a "charitable" entity. Preferably, those entities would be an offshore international business corporation (IBC), an offshore spendthrift/protective trust (SPT), and an offshore charitable trust foundation (TF).
2) To protect wealth in the most efficient way possible, the structure can be established by one entity, which creates the next entity, which then creates the next entity, and in the end, all three entities can be sequential trading partners with each other, in both directions, which means that all entities can do business with each other in any manner they choose.
This trinity structure can best be started with an IBC as the first entity in the trinity or with an SPT that is settled by a "foreign grantor" ( a non "U.S. citizen"), and which then becomes the settlor of the next entity, either an SPT or an IBC, the opposite of the first settling entity, and with this newly created SPT/IBC receiving capital benefit from the settling entity. The newly created SPT/IBC then becomes the settlor of a new TF, and the TF is the beneficiary of the previously created SPT/IBC. The TF is settled by the SPT/IBC, and anyone that the TF chooses, including the public and the first entity in the trinity, can be the beneficiaries.
There are many other ways to establish a structure and have it be as effective as any other way, however, this trinity structure features a minimal number of entities to operate, compared to some other plans that require additional entities and thus a greater investment in order to establish and operate.
3) Since no "U.S. citizen" or United States "person" is involved, this structure will be unrecognizable to the jurisdiction of the "United States."
4) The settlor transfers the initial property into the appropriate entity, and additional property can be transferred into the entities through the authorized purchase of assets in concert with the wishes of the settlor and/or the beneficiaries, under the responsibility of the trustee(s), or by the director of the international business corporation.
5) The structure can work best when the settlor, trustee(s), beneficiary, and managing director, are all different "persons." However, in the above structure, it can be beneficial if the person who was responsible for the property involved in the creation of the trusts, was appointed the managing director of the trusts by the trustee(s), upon request of the settlor of the trusts, and the same person can also be appointed as the director of the international business corporation that is created.
6) Once a structure is established, it can spin off additional property-specific protective trusts (SPT) from the SPT in the structure, while at the same time maintaining the structural integrity of the original trinity structure.
The above structure, containing a sequentially connected "operating" entity (IBC), "property" entity (SPT), and "charitable" entity (TF), has been very familiar to some people for many years. It is apparently efficient and effective, legal and lawful, outside of the jurisdiction of the "United States" if done properly, simple to defend in any legal environment under any rules it can be proven it is required to honor, and anyone who would choose to use such a structure would both explicitly and implicitly be belligerently asserting their right to use these contractual instruments in the same manner that the some of richest people in the world have done.
The operating entity can operate at a low profit or even at a loss, and can be mainly a business trading partner with the property entity and the charitable entity. The structural pattern can be used over and over again to create additional trinity structures, and the entities created will be sequentially linked together in their own trinity while existing independently from the other trinity structures, and in this manner, multiple fortresses of protection can be established that will operate independently within their own structure, and be separate from the other structures. And this structural pattern can also be used with entities of many different natures, if used lawfully, correctly, and consistently.
The entities within each structure are sequential trading partners in both directions, and for most efficient operation and security, different structures can best interface with each other through the vehicles of standard business transactions of trading partner relationships established between an IBC within one trinity structure, and an IBC within another trinity structure.

If the above method and structure is too complicated for you to comprehend and/or implement, here's another simpler solution that you might be able to put together after a minimum of 5-10 hours research into the subject matter, and which might help you lawfully and legally avoid all forms of inheritance taxes on your family property:
If you are married with children, you can transfer your family property into a property protective trust, with your children as the trustees, and with you and your spouse as co-managing directors. In this effort, the use of a pure common law trust settled in your state of domicile may be appropriate, and is still mostly protected in English-speaking nations, because this method is used by some of the richest and most powerful families in the world.
That's the entire solution in it's most simplest form, and it will be further developed with more details in this article and as time goes by.
The first step you should take in such a process, besides researching at least 5-10 hours in to the subject matter, is to estimate/project how much inheritance taxes would be owed on your property should the bill from probate court come due today. Then, compare the amount of your estimates/projections to what it will cost you to set up the trust and make it operational today (gleaned from your minimum 5-10 hours of research). After that comparison, if you are not convinced, then you should probably check your work because you have probably done something wrong. Otherwise, more suggestions follow.
In setting up the trust, you would be well-advised to wait until the youngest of your children is of legal age, if that is convenient and/or possible; if not, then set up the trust as soon as it is appropriate for you. Each and every one of your children would be appointed as trustees, and then the children would logically elect their parents as co-managing directors. The beneficiary of the trust could be specified as your entire family, or even your grand-children, or both, or otherwise.
There are several ways in which you may transfer your property from present title to the trust, and the transfer must be reflected in the title itself; in other words, you have to sell, or give, or transfer the mortgage of the property, to the trust, and that may require a certain type of monetary exchange, the quantity depending on the method you use and the imaginative alternatives you may discover otherwise. The bottom line is to remove the name of human beings (who may die and whose estate may be subject to probate) from the "title" and title of the property, and to place it in a financial instrument that would control the property for you, but still allow you the benefit of it usage.
Once the trust is set up, you may find that the trust itself is a good vehicle through which to manage your household, or you may decide to spin off another business trust out of which to run your household, and this is fully lawful and legal. At that point, you may find yourself putting together a structure similar to the trinity structure suggested herein, so in the long run it may be even better for you to do all the research and work necessary so you may start off with the trinity trust structure and work from that.
One of the negative aspects of this plan is the possibility of divorce, and the messy details that come along with it. Perhaps the trust itself may spur the married couple on to seek a solution to their marital problems other than divorce, and perhaps, for the sake of the children, it would be better if the married couple stayed together in the first place and worked things out, with a little help from their children, of course.
