Paymaster Services

PAYMASTER

Paymaster  is a cash account a business relies on to pay for small, routine expenses. Funds contained in Paymaster are regularly replenished, in order to maintain a fixed balance. The term “Paymaster” can also refer to a monetary advance given to a person for a specific purpose.

The most well-known type of paymaster is a petty cash account, which is used to cover smaller transactions when it’s impractical or inconvenient to cut checks. Such accounts maintain a set amount of cash on-site, which can be used to reimburse employees and pay for small expenses. Petty cash funds are typically handled by custodians.

Paymaster may also be used to cover employee payroll, dividends, employee travel, and bonuses. After these outgoing expenses are paid, the fund is typically reimbursed by capital from the company's primary bank account.

Offshore Banking

OFFSHORE BANKING

The term offshore refers to a location outside of one's national boundaries, whether or not that location is land- or water-based. The term may be used to describe foreign banks, corporations, investments, and deposits.

 

A company may legitimately move offshore for the purpose of tax avoidance or to enjoy relaxed regulations. Offshore financial institutions can also be used for illicit purposes such as money laundering and tax evasion.

In the terms of business activities, offshoring is often referred to as outsourcing—the act of establishing certain business functions, such as manufacturing or call centers, in a nation other than the one in which the business most often does business. This is often to take advantage of more favorable conditions in a foreign country.

Your world is constantly expanding. You deserve a bank that can keep up. Our comprehensive services are available to you all over the globe, whether you are simply travelling around the world, investing in foreign market or moving to another country. Each offshore bank and foreign jurisdiction has its own requirements, so you'll have to do some research to find the specifics relevant to your situation. The following is an overview of what you can expect if you decide to open an offshore bank account.

Cash
Fund Receiver

Wire transfer, bank transfer or credit transfer, is a method of electronic funds transfer from one person or entity to another. A wire transfer can be made from one bank account to another bank account, or through a transfer of cash at a cash office.

One important way ACH transfers differ from wire transfer is that the recipient can initiate it. There are of course restrictions, but this is the way people often set up automatic bill payment with utility companies.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • A money market fund is a type of mutual fund that invests in high-quality, short-term debt instruments, cash, and cash equivalents.

  • Though not quite as safe as cash, money market funds are considered extremely low-risk on the investment spectrum.

  • A money market fund generates income (taxable or tax-free, depending on its portfolio), but little capital appreciation.

  • Money market funds should be used as a place to park money temporarily before investing elsewhere or making an anticipated cash outlay; they are not suitable as long-term investments.

Citizenship

Getting a second passport is an asset that most people can only dream of. It brings freedom, stability, and immeasurable opportunities for those who have them.

 

AMERICA

The EB-5 visa gives permanent U.S. residency to those investing into government-approved projects across the United States of America.

 

The USA EB5 investment visa can be beneficial as it grants access to the U.S. education system, the right to live, retire, work and study in the USA, the ability to receive investment back upon the completion of the project and residency for the investor, any children (under 21) and their spouse.

The main applicant must reside in the USA for 6 months per year.

UNITED KINGDOM

The UK has been issuing Investor Visa (Tier 1) since 2008. To obtain it, an investor buys shares in British companies. The minimum amount of investment is £2 million.

An application is to be submitted no earlier than 3 months before the expected entry date. The applicant must have an amount not less than £2 million. Also, the investor opens an account in a British bank, where he transfers the money to invest.

Legislation of Great Britain provides for 3 investment options for obtaining an investor visa. They differ in the minimum amount of investment, which determines the period of application for permanent residence and citizenship.

CYPRUS

Cyprus offers two types of Golden Visas, one of which leads to citizenship, whereas the other to permanent residence. The difference comes down to the required amount of investment.

To get Cyprus citizenship by investment, the applicant must purchase real estate property worth at least €2 million. For permanent residence, the investment requirement is less, standing at €300,000.

The Cyprus Golden Visa program is the quickest route to citizenship of all European countries – you can become a Cypriot citizen (and thus an EU citizen) within six months.

WEALTH MANAGEMENT

Planning for a time when you’re no longer around may seem daunting. It doesn’t have to be. We’re here to take the uncertainty out of preparing for the future. All it takes is an open conversation about what you want for your family. Of course, you’ll have questions. But together we can find the answers. And the earlier you start planning, the earlier you’ll be ready.

 

Questions to ask yourself

It’s a good idea to start early to make your financial plan as effective as possible. But there’s a lot to consider. Begin by asking yourself these three questions:

 

Am I setting my family up for success?

It’s never too early to talk to your children about money: how it was made, how you should manage it, and why it doesn’t define you. Does your family have the right perspective on wealth?
 

How do I start the conversation?

It may seem like an uncomfortable topic to discuss. But simply starting to talk through your plans is half the battle. And the more honest you are about how you’d like to pass on your wealth, the easier the discussion becomes.

 

How do I want to pass on my wealth?

You want to give your children access to the best opportunities in life. But you also understand that the challenges you faced helped to get you where you are. How do you leave a legacy which serves their best interests?

 

How can wealth management help?

Very simply, we help you put a wealth plan in place for the future. Think of it like a buffer that aims to cushion any financial shocks and helps you stay on track to meet your goals.

And when you choose Aura Wealth Management, you get a trusted partner who can guide your financial decisions for years to come.

Forensic Services

Globalisation, technological innovation and the rise of emerging economies have placed corporations in an increasingly complex business environment. This means that companies need to respond to increasingly rapid changes in corporate governance trends. For companies with a strong legacy culture, breaking with the status quo and responding to these changes can be a challenge. Negligence leading to non-compliance in the field or at the management level, declining business performance due to a failure to keep up with trends, and accidents or natural disasters can all lead to a sudden drop in business performance. This can lead to a crisis for the company.

A company’s or organization’s handling of fraud and crises can mean the difference between failure and survival. What’s more, as companies expand their areas of business, cross-border and cross-industry alliances and competition can lead to increasingly complex interests.

The mission of our forensic services practice is to contribute to the growth of our clients. To do so, we provide advice to help you prevent damage to your corporate value, clarify facts when problems arise, and resolve fundamental problems through investigation and remediation.

 

Fraud investigation

Accounting fraud, the falsification of quality data and other similar incidents have become major issues for society. And if such an incident occurs at your company, society will be closely watching to see how you handle it.

To make sure that your response reflects positively on your company, you’ll need to provide a great deal of information to your stakeholders in an extremely short period of time. This information includes not only your findings but also detailed information on the root causes, potential damages and impacts, and your investigative approach and measures to prevent recurrence.

What’s more, this information needs to be disclosed not only to shareholders and business partners, but also to foreign institutional investors, authorities, the media and other entities. An appropriate initial response can help keep the indirect economic impact of the fraud (such as the impact on your stock price, penalties imposed by regulatory authorities, and damage to your corporate credibility and social reputation) from greatly exceeding the direct financial burden.

Our forensic services team has extensive experience in helping clients through disruptive events both inside and outside Japan. We provide support tailored to the details and context of each individual case, including support for clarifying the facts and formulating subsequent remedial and preventive measures.

Our fraud investigation services include

  • accounting fraud investigations,

  • product quality and data falsification investigations,

  • asset misappropriation and breach of trust investigations,

  • bribery and corruption investigations and

  • fraud risk management.

 

Accounting fraud investigations

Inflated and fictitious sales. Window dressing. Round-trip and unauthorized off-the-book transactions. Fraudulent accounting methods vary widely and are becoming more sophisticated and complex, making them difficult to prevent and detect. The number of cases occurring at overseas subsidiaries is also on the rise.

Our team has extensive knowledge and experience in identifying accounting fraud through combinations of document reviews, forensic data analysis, interviews with concerned parties (including business partners) and digital forensics.

 

We can help you investigate

  • intentional deviations from standard sales recording practices,

  • advance recording of sales or deferral of expenses,

  • manipulation of sales and sales costs through inappropriate application of the percentage-of-completion method,

  • round-trip transactions,

  • manipulation of production costs to increase profits,

  • falsification of inventory quality and/or quantity,

  • off-book assets and transactions

  • inappropriate disclosure of related-party transactions,

  • diversion of assets and inappropriate financial reporting at overseas subsidiaries, and more.

Data security: The key to financial wellness

When employees worry about their finances, they bring their stress to work. Research shows that employees with high levels of financial stress are more likely to have depression, anxiety and fatigue that will affect their health and productivity. In response, employers are increasingly turning to financial wellness programs to support their workers. 

 Aura recently sponsored an executive roundtable to discuss how leading providers are using data to improve outcomes from financial wellness programs, and the issues around such data usage. The executives agreed on three key conclusions:

  • Regulatory guidance is vague, so using data to support financial wellness is challenging.

  • Successful programs communicate with transparency about using and protecting data.

  • Good program governance is important, regardless of program structure.

Though COVID-19 ravaged many organisations, family businesses proved robust and adaptable amid the pandemic. Through a people-first approach that prioritised the well-being of their employees and communities, 80% enabled staff to work from home and 25% repurposed production to meet pandemic-related demand. Only one-third of family businesses had to cut dividends, and only 20% needed access to extra capital. Such resilience also extends into the outlook for the future, as 80% of family businesses plan to diversify or expand into new products or markets, and 86% believe they will be back to pre-pandemic growth rates by 2022.
