Does it mater?

Is it diferent to place a website in russia or china than it is to place it in europe europe or US?

Recently a gambling company lauched a huge sports betting site in europe, i think they are paying like 2% of taxes cause they manage to place the server in gibraltar.
Is it really like that?

Like... lets say i have an hosting company and i want to host adult websites, do i get rid of any taxes by renting a space in russian datacenter and run the servers there?

This is something you'll have to take up with an attorney/accountant.

But yes, the laws & taxes are different in different countries. But there are often requirements that you must meet in order to establish a business in a particular country.

Yep, Axe is right, tread carefully. Afterdawn.com had (has?) a bunch of guides related to video, including information on backing up DVDs and stuff. Well, they're based in Finland, and as of 1 Jan this year, there are new copyright laws in place that make much of the information they present illegal. Their legal counsel advised them that simply moving the site and its contents to a server elsewhere wouldn't do the trick, the company and its employees would have to physically relocate for that to work. Not that this has anything directly to with taxes, but it does illustrate that you've gotta respect the laws of the land. =]

The following response are not intended as a substitute for legal counsel.

Basically there are two governing jurisdictions that may have concurrent jurisdiction. The state, province and/or country the server is physically located in and the state, province and/or country the responsible parties are located in. Circumventing the later would require you to meet the requirements of the state, province and/or country you wish to establish residency and/or business in.

So, bascally, i wont get any benifits by simply mooving a server. If the responsible party stays whereever it is than it wont get any diferent treatment just by changing server's physical location. Right?

You can get benefits, like I said though, you'll need to seek the advice of an attorney and/or accountant. They will have experience with something like this.

You need LEGAL advice. We can't provide that here.
