The IRS doesnt always get its way. In a big setback to the IRS’s juggernaut against tax evasion and offshore accounts, a former top UBS banker has been acquitted of tax evasion. The U.S. charged Raoul Weil with conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government. The former exec was facing five years in prison and a $250,000 fine, and is the highest-ranking Swiss banker prosecuted in the U.S. crackdown. But now he gets to go home to Switzerland.

What exactly is “offshore”?
For such an exotic term, it’s actually quite a simple concept.
Going offshore means doing business in any country that isn’t the one in which you live.
For some people, that means banking internationally. For others, it’s about setting up a business in another country. And for others, it might involve more formal asset protection strategies, such as trusts.
Another way to think about it: For everyone else in the world, the United States is offshore. It’s all a matter of perspective.
