Myself and a few others have been looking at offshore company formation for
a while now. What type of company are you thinking of starting? Lesser
developed nations will often waive tariffs and give large tax breaks to
high-tech companies that want to operate in their country. I have stacks
of papers from the State Department as well as a couple overseas
governments regarding the issue of overseas company formation. You don't
realize how easy it is to start a company in the U.S. until you try and do
it in another country.

I am hoping to get an overseas venture going within a couple years.
