  • Talk to Al Jazeera - Peter Dutton: Behind Australia's tough border policies

    The small pacific island nations of Papua New Guinea and Nauru host what many call Australia's offshore prisons for refugees. Labelled "regional processing centres" by the Australian government, bilateral arrangements enable Australia's government to maintain power and control, but assume less responsibility for the refugees who are forced to live there. These offshore detention centres are home to around 1,500 asylum seekers who were taken into custody after entering Australian waters without visas. Many of them have been stuck there in limbo for more than three years. Both centres are run under secrecy, off-limits to the media and to NGOs like Amnesty International. So what's going on inside? Are these prisons Australia's Guantanamo Bay? Or a necessary deterrent, which helps to sav...

    http://www.nomadcapitalist.com/offshore-banking/ Offshore banking isn't always as simple as opening an account at any foreign bank. In fact, many banks overseas offer terrible customer service and a lack of stability. However, one bank stands out as the absolute worst around the world: HSBC. Blogs will tell you that HSBC Premier is an easy way to move money around the world. Don't believe it. HSBC US is just as incompetent as HSBC Hong Kong. Global View doesn't work as promised. Premier benefits aren't offered in other countries, regardless of what is promised. If you love endless bureaucracy, employees who don't know their own policies, hours waiting on hold, and being made an unpaid employee of your bank, then HSBC is for you.

He said: "You're describing the way taxes work globally. And the fact of the matter is these are the way taxes are done globally. The same is true for British firms operating in the US, for example."

My Guest post: http://www.h1bwiki.com/offshore-and-onsite-review/ Off Shore: 1.One has to give importance or must follow company policies and process next. 2.Offshore is like home where you have freedom and flexibility of work hours, but long hours and tasks need be completed by EOD (end of the day). 3.50% of the projects might be outsourced from Europe and other nations not just USA so you may be adjusted to work in different time zones. 4.Any guy working in offshore can work onsite easily without much difficulty (in terms of technical aspects but not travel or logistics). 5.We may use same email id(company email id) for multiple purposes (There is no exception to any one while working but we may focus much on company rules). 6.Travel may not be an issue as company vehicle may take care of it. 7.We may work Monday through Saturdays and even if needed on Sundays also. 8.Due to the nature of company business, Sometimes we may be expected to work minimum 14 hours a day 9.We may or may not know what is comp off or over time here. 10.You may have lots of leaves and can avail provided less or no work. 11.Sometimes your vacation may be interrupted with work, because of the deadlines. On Site: 1.One has to give importance to client process but not company policies 2.If the Client Company is from offshore (India) and as an H1B consultant you may land up in conflict between offshore company policies and US client policies. Hence one must be well equipped to handle both (off shore company policies and US client policies). Solution is: Try to have a conference call and bring all of them on to it and make sure both parties either agree to disagree or disagree to agree and follow up on emails. Thumb rule of WORK in USA is 8 hours a day and 40 hrs a week 160hrs a month 4.If supervisor ask you to stay late and work with out client permission or hours paid off, as per local labor laws you can immediately complain about it to respective authorities 5.At least once in a week, one can opt for work from home, but people call this as “work for home” :). This is not a BOOK RULE but it depends upon nature of work. 6.If weather is bad and nature of job is not production or non critical then also can opt to work from home. 7.100% of the projects to be at onsites, hence you can work only 8 hours and no one pressurize if work is not completed by COB(closing of business hours). 8.If you have already worked offshore, it should relatively be the same to work onsite. (in terms of technical aspects). 9.We may work Monday to Friday. Saturday and Sunday is a holiday and probably 11 unpaid holidays in every year US calendar. 10.Based upon nature of job and manager’s approval one can accumulate lots of comp offs and avail it. 11.Vacation means Vacation here at on sites and no one will disturb you. 12.Over Time: This is where many H1Bs have issues in USA and very few Indian consulting Incs release over time money to consultants and cannot help it. Over Time means: It need not be approved by end client and it must be paid by Prime vendor irrespective of Client paid to him or not. 13.Travel: As per business rules, Layer 1 to employer is a client. So apart from his office address, where ever you go, it must come under the travel expenses. The second part of the article details on how different the reality is and Mr. Sreenivas shared his own experiences. The second part will be posted later this week. I would sincerely thank Mr. Sreenivas Kumar Pandruvada for the efforts he put in to write this guest post. He is a also writing a book on H1B Journey to the USA.

We first set up our home on the Island in 1991 and today RL360° is one of the fastest growing international life companies. DAVID KNEESHAW, RL360° CHIEF EXECUTIVE: We have offices around the world in Asia, Africa and Middle East - that allows us to build closer relationships with our stakeholders, customers and advisers. DENZIL WILLIAMS, RL360° DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS: Customer service is vital. We have customers in around 170 different countries and being remote from us they have to have confidence that we are looking after them at all times. NARRATOR: RL360° is proud to call the Isle of Man our permanent home. The Island enjoys OECD white list status and an AA1 sovereign rating from Moody’s, and has been praised by the IMF as a well-regulated financial centre of excellence. Not only that, but investments into Isle of Man life companies are protected by law, guaranteeing investors will get back 90% of the value of their policy in the unlikely event of a life company being unable to meet its liabilities. DAVID KNEESHAW: The Isle of Man is the world’s oldest continuous democracy and one of the benefits of being a crown dependency and the history of the Island and its proximity to the United Kingdom is that it has very strong consumer protection laws which in today’s environment is extremely important. NARRATOR: The Isle of Man’s stability, financial strength and continuous growth means we can offer clients from around the world the best possible security and a wider choice of investment options. DAVID KNEESHAW: RL360° is backed by FCA regulated shareholders in London. The ownership structure makes us a more focused business - a more dynamic business and a more committed business to the sector in which we want to operate. DENZIL WILLIAMS: We are very lucky in the Isle of Man in that because we are a specialist centre for financial services, there are a great number of people with the relevant kind of expertise and experience. NARRATOR: Our 300 dedicated staff take care of 60,000 policy holders in across the world, managing funds worth over $10 billion. But for us, success isn’t just about numbers, it’s about our deep commitment to our existing clients. DENZIL WILLIAMS: We understand all of our customers have their own financial objectives and that their relationship with us is very important to them and we treat it with the same degree of importance. DAVID KNEESHAW: Trust is an important part of any offering in financial services, when customers come to a company such as RL360° they’re really looking for a safe haven for their money. NARRATOR: We are constantly consulting with independent financial advisers and listen to our policyholders’ needs. We’ve even designed portable policies, so you can enjoy our continued care and investment benefits if you move to a different country. DAVID KNEESHAW: RL360° has a very clearly defined future, we want to continue with our organic growth by being good at what we do. To look for new areas to do business outside of where we have been before so we are in the process of opening regulated offices in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur and Latin America. DENZIL WILLIAMS: RL360° is probably the most innovative company in our marketplace. We put a lot of time, energy and investment into our technology. The app is a great example of our innovation. DAVID KNEESHAW: What you’re trying to achieve in the business is a sense of balance but the key is to say let’s concentrate on being a good business - good products good service good relationships and if we keep doing that then we are more likely to have a good future. RL360°. Count on us.

They can wait in the detention facilities to be processed for up to years, deprived of many basic human rights, including the right to engage in work and education, social and personal security, privacy, welfare, physical and mental health, freedom from cruel treatment, housing and privacy, and freedom of movement. Every year, approximately 1 million people seek asylum internationally for many reasons including: fleeing from violence, religious, political, and ethnic conflicts [1]. Seeking asylum is a basic human right under the UN Refugee Convention. It is not illegal for someone to seek asylum. We are advocating for policy change of the Migration Act 1958 (Commonwealth) stating that asylum seekers who arrive on the mainland without a valid visa must be held in immigration or community detention, or transferred to an offshore processing facility. We are advocating for: 1. Transfer of asylum seekers from offshore processing facilities to appropriate onshore facilities while they await resettlement in an alternative country or provision of temporary protection visa. Supported by reallocation of funding currently intended for operational costs of offshore facilities. 2. Implementation of apprenticeship/vocational programs for asylum seekers awaiting resettlement while they await resettlement in an alternative country or provision of temporary protection visa. Supported by reallocation of funding currently intended for operational costs of offshore facilities. It is anticipated that implementation of the above strategies would result in greater quality of life for these asylum seekers given evidence supporting onshore processing measures and the provision of employment and training incentives for improved health outcomes for this population group. The transfer from offshore processing facilities is also likely to yield significant cost savings when considering the significant expenditure required for establishing and maintaining facilities for asylum seekers and staff ($316.9 million annually) [2]. We acknowledge that transferring to onshore processing facilities does not fix the issues faced by asylum seekers entirely. However this change will mean the Australian Government will be taking responsibility for the individuals and upholding their human rights. Onshore processing will ensure housing and facilities for asylum seekers reflects the occupational health and safety standards of Australia. And the introduction of an apprenticeship mentoring program will allow for opportunity to engage in meaningful activities, increases in skill acquisition, and an increase in employability once they are processed. This is particularly important as most asylum seekers are processed as refugees: at May 31st, 2016, 77% of Nauru Island and 98% of Papua New Guinea asylum seekers had refugee claims approved [3]. We also acknowledge that transferring to onshore processing facilities and provision of a more supportive physical environment will support the mental health of this population group, where currently those in offshore processing facilities feel unsafe, and a sense of hopelessness. The transfer will allow for improved safety and freedom of violence as the Australian Government will be liable to take responsibility for upholding their human rights within the onshore facilities, as they currently are not in offshore facilities. As global citizens it is our responsibility to support the human rights of all other people, locally and internationally. Let's support those who are fleeing from violence and death in their own countries, and advocate for their rights to be met. References: [1] Asylum-Seekers. (2016). UNHCR.

http://www.nomadcapitalist.com/offshore-banking/ Offshore banking isn't always as simple as opening an account at any foreign bank. In fact, many banks overseas offer terrible customer service and a lack of stability. However, one bank stands out as the absolute worst around the world: HSBC. Blogs will tell you that HSBC Premier is an easy way to move money around the world. Don't believe it. HSBC US is just as incompetent as HSBC Hong Kong. Global View doesn't work as promised. Premier benefits aren't offered in other countries, regardless of what is promised. If you love endless bureaucracy, employees who don't know their own policies, hours waiting on hold, and being made an unpaid employee of your bank, then HSBC is for you. For the rest of us, avoid HSBC. ----- ABOUT NOMAD CAPITALIST Andrew Henderson travels to nearly 30 countries every year to stay up to date on the latest legal strategies for entrepreneurs and investors to pay less tax, grow their money faster, and build their personal freedom.

As a result, they get stuck and keep paying a fortune in taxes and never get the lifestyle they deserve.

Hong Kong IFC is the Key for China With the rising economic power, China has been gradually undergoing slow but steady financial modernization. The economic success of Hong Kong is the indicator to it. The territory has established itself as strong financial sector in the last two decades. Hong Kong yearly incomes have been one of the highest levels in the world. The financial GDP share has increased from 12% from the year 2003 to close to 20% in the last year enabling the movement of finance to all sections of the markets. This rise in economy has been crucial in counterbalancing the gradual movement of the industry of Hong Kong and reach mainland over the same period. In this regard, you can say that the success of being a major international financial sector is because of their strong and rigid banking and financial laws. The basic law of Hong Kong provides that the government of HKSAR (Hong Kong Special Administrative Region) will give right economic and legal environment for maintaining the status of Hong Kong as international financial centre. More importantly Article 110 states that the administrative body of HKSAR can formulate monetary and financial policies on their own to safeguard the operation of the financial markets and maintain them in accordance with the law. Hong Kong has an organized system of financial institutions which provides wide range of flexible financial services and products to local and international investors. Hong Kong has ranked as top financial centre and came third among 75 participating financial centers including London and New York. The success in Hong King Equity market has been quite impressive. The equity market capitalization and trading turnover is estimated to have reached US$21,077 billion in 2010 making it seventh largest in the world. Today Hong Kong can boast about 152 approved banks. The foreign exchange market of Hong Kong is the largest and free market in the world. Hong Kong insurance and gold future market has been rapidly growing since then. Another interesting development in Hong Kong financial market is the steady growth and internationalization of the Renminbi (RNB) .This has resulted in the movement of the economic magnitude from the west to the east of the mainland. Hong Kong has the advantage of having skilled labor and strong regulatory financial body with high quality of business services to provide financial support to China. The advantage of "One country, Two Systems" principle has made Hong Kong a testing ground for internationalization of RNB. The year 2004 has been pivotal for RMB growth as credit cards and deposits were introduced in that year. Gradually gold trading, bond insurance and other settlement services were extended under RNB making Hong Kong offshore investment in Asia and beyond. Today Hong Kong has emerged to be Asia's No 1 City. While helping China to improve their financial business activities and administrative efficiency, it has outnumbered Japan to be the first largest economy and financial hub. Hong Kong stands as an important part in the growth of China in the present times. http://www.investoffshore.com/hong-kong-ifc-is-the-key-for-china/

Google's chairman, Eric Schmidt, has defended the search engine's tax avoidance policies, saying "we fully comply with the law" after paying just £6m in corporation tax in the UK. In an interview with the BBC, Schmidt defended the fact that Google paid corporation tax of £6m in 2011 despite recording annual revenues of £2.5bn in Britain. He said: "You're describing the way taxes work globally. And the fact of the matter is these are the way taxes are done globally. The same is true for British firms operating in the US, for example."
