Offshore Company - FAQs

What is an offshore company?

Offshore companies are companies that do not conduct a substantial volume of business within their jurisdiction of incorporation. Offshore companies should be registered as an entity in the country of incorporation, the ‘incorporators’ should be based outside of the country of incorporation and should transact the majority of business outside of the country of incorporation.

Which jurisdiction should I choose?

Most offshore jurisdictions have no foreign exchange controls and have little or no tax on companies and individuals. Most jurisdictions have different legislation including double taxation agreements to serve the needs of cross border business. It is important to select the correct jurisdiction that is most suited to your specific needs. Please feel free to contact us for further information on your choice of jurisdiction.

What are ‘off-the-shelf’ companies?

An ‘off-the-shelf’ company is an already incorporated business that has no present activity. They are unused corporations that are set up to meet client’s specific needs.

How are the costs structured?

Incorporation fees, maintenance fees and additional service costs all vary between each jurisdiction. Contact us for Full Price.
