Hello Fools,

Judging from the standard posts on this board, I think this one is a little out of the ordinary. Nevertheless, I couldn't think of a better place to go...

I am looking for advice concerning tax avoidance. Are there any viable strategies to pay minimal/ zero capital gains tax on securities transactions that can be implemented by the individual investor?

In theory, you can create an offshore vehicle for buying and selling securities and the capital gains resulting from trading through this vehicle may be non-taxable. Ultimately, though, it seems you are left with the problem of how to access those funds without these funds falling under 'any and all worldwide income'.

Any Foolish ideas/ resources?

Thanks, AD.
