Tips on How to Evade Sanctions from Iran

Iran has been hit by massive sanctions from the West so much so that it has nearly crippled the economy. The effects have been far- reaching leading to: devaluing of the currency, high unemployment rates, sanctions on the financial and banking system, sanctions on technology in the energy sector, sanctions on oil produced in the country, lack of insurance on Iranian cargo and even the freezing of assets.

However, as the saying goes, tough times call for tough measures. Iran has developed mechanisms to go around these sanctions and forge on ahead with their nuclear program. One of the ingenious ways has been to set up subsidiary companies in foreign countries. One of these companies is setup in one the technological cities in Germany that makes world class technology shipped all over the globe. The city is the ideal place to go buy dual use components that are needed for the manufacture of nuclear weapons but can also be used for other civilian projects thus giving the buyer plausible deniability.

Iran also has many shell companies in Germany and because these companies are opened and closed within months there is little or no paper trail left behind thus no one can tell what these companies do. For the companies that last for a while they operate covertly and are in most cases based in the homes of their managers with very little information about them being in the public domain. However, most of them are involved in industrial procurement for Iran's ballistic and nuclear missile
projects. Learn more by getting to know  Mark Dubowitz.

Due to sanctions on the financial sector the banks in the country are so constrained such that they have been rendered impotent. This has necessitated Iran to come up with ingenious ways to finance their procurement activities. There are two companies that have been popular for investing in Iranian money in Germany. Both ae fronts of an Iranian company that has also faced sanctions. The main aim of the parent company is to use oil revenues to deal with the ups and downs that have impacted the Iranian oil market. This is because Iranian oil is a distressed asset which means that it must be sold below the current global price due to sanctions. Even though the parent company has been facing sanctions its subsidiaries in Germany have a portfolio of millions of dollars. The parent company also owns 4.5% of a huge German conglomerate and a minority share in a factory that creates energy products. Check out more info at
