HALIBURTON: Moving to Dubai

Rate this topic

36 posts in this topic

Halliburton Co. will soon shift its corporate headquarters from

Houston to the United Arab Emirates.

Check their website.

 

Does that make Haliburton a USA or UAE corporation?

 

Could someone please explain how corporations

headquartered overseas are held accountable for tax liability?

 

Will they pay taxes in the US for their work,

which by the way is largely funded by US taxpayers?

 

Are they going to avoid paying US taxes?

 

Is it like a Bahamas headquartered corporation?

OMG, that's such a great tip!

I was planning to attend the Abu Dabi Val Tudo Championship next year.

Hopefully the shareholder meeting will coincide with the tournament.

Talk about exciting, money, violence, and sex slavery.

chachacha can't wait to cash in.

What does that say about our government's hideous tax policies that it is better to base in some hideous place like Dubai than here?

Good for them. Anyone get clue here?

shocking aint' it?

that companies fair better in banana Republics and corrupt nations.....

I guess if you don't care what conditions the populous lives in,

you don't need to raise much tax revenue,

beyond the amount you plan on lining your pockets with.

I'm buying. Just like George Soros.

You can hang with the winners, you can hang with the losers. Don't bother me either way.

Dubai makes sense for a company like Haliburton. Very international. Purely commercial with very little politics getting in the way. It has almost no native population, and it's far more like a business center than an Arab emirate. High-end glass buildings sticking out of the sand. I wouldn't want to live there, but for a company like Haliburton that largely fills services contracts with imported labor and isn't tied down to manufacturing plants, it seems like a smart move no matter US tax laws. Unless there's an Arab/Persian conflict in the Gulf, you're going to see the gulf nations attract a LOT more of these business than they have already. The Gulf is a mall. One stop shopping for huge ventures and governments looking to do business. Dubai has been brilliant in their economic strategy, but Bahrain and Qatar are joining the fray as well.

Don't be too fooled by the pictures though. That tropical paradise look disappears six feet from the watering system at that hotel. The place is a dustbowl. And frankly you could pay me to swim in the Persian Gulf. Fly over it enough and you see too much of what they all dump into it.

wades moaning reminded me of why I like protective tariffs,

American businesses move out.....

because they don't want to contribute to our way of life,

we should reward the companies who DO stay, by giving them an edge in our fabulous consumer economy.

i am at a loss as to all the fuss here. if you think about what this company does (onsite oil and gas exploration and production SERVICES) and who its primary customers are (oilfield and gas producers, amongst others), it makes all the sense in the world to be closer to your customers.

More like leftists grabbing whatever they can get their hands on through the use of force and fraud.

They are gone they now owe you no more than some seamstress in Hong Kong-zippo.

 

These people have put billions in the coffers for the pigs in Washington.

How about a "thanks for the business, sorry we couldn't keep it"? Thats what they should get.
