How to set up an offshore company
More often, we receive a number of queries from our clients in regards to setting up an onshore company. Some wonder if they might need a Bachelor Degree, others are curious if they’d need to travel to an offshore jurisdiction such as BVI for the formation. Here at Sinda Corporation , we will answer some of the asked questions by our clients.
- Choose the best jurisdiction of incorporation
First, of course, you will need to decide which jurisdiction suits your business the most. Much is down to what your business does and where you live. If you intend to set up an offshore company as the parent company controlling a number of firms, then both BVI and Cayman would suffice. However, if your intention is to do business with China, using Hong Kong as a gateway to the Chinese market, then an HK company would best serve your needs
- Choose a name for the proposed company
Second, choosing a name for your proposed company offshore can be time-consuming and frustrating. You might be worried if the name was chosen might have been taken, or, in some cases, is not allowed due to legal issues. In the case of BVI, for example, the use of some words is prohibited, including trust, banking, fund, unless you have a regulated financial license. Also, some words, which might imply official recognition, are not allowed. Take, for example, words, such as government, royal, are not allowed in the incorporation.
- Who can incorporate an offshore company
Anyone with a valid passport can incorporate an offshore company, however, this is not the case for nationals of a number of countries which have been designated by FATF as high risk. FATF stands for Financial Action Task Force, is an organization founded by the G7 in 1989 aimed at ridding the world of money laundering. The currently updated list of FATF high-risk countries includes the following:•
If you are a national of the above-mentioned countries, regrettably it is unlikely that any business providers would allow you to purchase their services nor would they assist you with any forms of offshore activities.
4. Provide due diligence documents
In order to comply with the relevant regulation for offshore activities, clients are required to present the following documents upon application:
- A certified copy of your passport
- A certified copy of a document proving your residential address
- Details of the company’s proposed business activities
