In most cases, International Business Companies (IBCs) are established in tax havens. It is a company usually governed by a special law, which is intended for business outside the territory of the state where it is registered. The advantage is the minimum taxation of this company's income and non-public business register. In addition to these advantages, business in a tax haven in the Seychelles is also characterized by other positive features.
Seychelles IBC (International Business Company) - This is the universal and most popular type of offshore company in the Seychelles. As with most conventional offshore companies, the Seychelles IBCs are not liable to corporation tax when doing business in all forms of international trade. The minimum accounting requirements as well as the high confidentiality are common denominators of the Seychelles IBC.
The Seychelles IBC is similar to the most popular international trading companies and in some respects even exceeds the offshore model standard. Since the introduction of the Seychelles International Business Companies Act in 1994, more than 30,000 companies have been established and more than 600 new offshore companies are registered each month.
For several years our company has been offering the establishment of an offshore company in the Republic of Seychelles. The main reason for choosing this jurisdiction is a stable legal environment with a high degree of flexibility for the requirements of offshore founders.
As part of the services, we offer several possibilities of establishing an offshore company, whether using the classic form of incorporation, where the company is based on the persons listed by you as well as your appointed director, or using the services of nominated owners and directors, a company that retains your influence on the company's future operations.
In assessing the legal and fiscal reasons for setting up offshore companies, it is important that the management and control of the company be officially exercised in the Republic of Seychelles. It is advisable that you consult with an accountant and tax advisor before using an offshore company to optimize tax costs, as the application of tax regulations depends on the specific business conditions. The traditional role of the company director is to oversee the running of the company. For this reason, clients normally request to do this task directly on the island. This usually means that some documents should be signed on behalf of the company and the necessary general meetings from Seychelles should be convened. Of course, such director will perform and fulfill his task in accordance with your requirements. The name of the director will not be accessible in any public document, as information about the director is confidential.
