Real Estate Listings from England: Silly-Saturday Reading

Browsing current property auctions is a part of covering investment news and information in markets both domestic and abroad. The ones below did not provide too much in the way of usable information but they were quite hilarious and, thus, still sort of a good read. Let’s go ahead and hire a real j-A-rk then — preferably to be a real estate agent (and come up with things like in the next listing pictured below). It appears that Anglian Water Services Ltd are auctioning off their family silver. Indeed — good to know: the listing particulars state that the site...

Asset Protection: Company Formation and Investing in Norway Eased Another Step Further

Norway has lowered its statutory capital requirement for the country’s variant of the private limited company or AS (Aksjeselskab) for a second time in just over a year.

Further Improvements in Private Limited Company Registration

The United Kingdom is one of the world’s most popular domiciles for establishing private companies limited by shares (often called “Limited Companies” or Ltd).

UN Working to Cease Your Private Property and Freedom

Unelected officials, i e bureaucrats running a tyranny you cannot even influence via democratic elections, are planning to cease private property worldwide. Sounds crazy? Yes, it does. Don’t believe it? Then do just two things to check whether or not it could be true: (1) watch developments around controlling the internet. The ITU (International Telecommunications Union at the UN)  will try to force usage fees for “international” internet connections out of everyone of us (tell me, if you can make a non-international connection using existing HTTP technologies and network infrastructure). This will be a sectional preview of what’s to come...

Saving Tax Legally: Bullion and Coins Online or for Local Pickup

Apart from the EEC, there is also EFTA (the European Free Trade Agreement including Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland), resulting in a greater EEA (European Economic Area) subject to bilateral agreements extending most EEC common market...

U. K. Property Prices Taking a Nosedive

Property prices in the U. K. have now confirmed to be in another nosedive. This even includes the agricultural properties market, a market segment that has been hawked as the “last bastion of attractive price increases” by most property agents lately in an attempt to secure what remains of their commissions. Shopping for investment (cashflow, rather than “capital appreciation”) properties, this is the kind of response potential investors with good money to spend are receiving lately, according to Financial Newsroom sources: “Dear Markie *) Thank you for your email. The land at […] has been withdrawn from the market. Kind...
