Delaware Holding Companies

Delaware corporate tax statute provides significant savings for passive investments held in the state of Delaware. A Delaware Holding Company (DHC) is a legal entity incorporated in Delaware which limits its activities in Delaware to the maintenance and management of intangible assets. The passive income produced by those assets are entirely exempt from Delaware state income tax. 30 Del. C. §1902(b)(8). (*see footnote)

The passive income of which we speak are such things as dividend income, interest on notes receivable, capital gains, trademark payments, rents and royalties. Delaware permits a corporation to establish a wholly-owned Delaware subsidiary to own and manage the parent company's intangible assets.

We can provide you with a wide variety of DHC services. These include the following:
