Transactions completed within the State of Florida that involve promissory notes or othe runconditional obligations are charged document stamp fees. Consider the rate (which is $0.35 for every $100 of indebtedness) and you can understand how much money this adds up to – particularly on transactions involving multi-millions of dollars.
This money can be saved. Our Clearwater Fishing Charters frequently transport people into international waters for bank and document signing in the Clearwater area. Our fishing boats are clean, fast, reliable and air-conditioned - which makes them perfect for offshore document signing. Chartering a fishing boat in Clearwater is considerably cheaper than hiring other types of craft, such as private yachts and airplanes. Of course, the money that you can save is the biggest advantage.
We advise consulting a lawyer, accountant or appropriate counsel regarding offshore bank signing in the Clearwater area. This is why:
When you travel a few miles offshore into the Gulf of Mexico, you can avoid document stamp fees because the transaction is taking place outside the jurisdiction of the State of Florida. This needs to be made official however, and your counsel will need to prepare legal affidavits for this purpose. These will be signed by our Clearwater fishing captain and other parties onboard - in order to document your transaction as having legally occurred offshore.
