Background to Seychelles Company Registration

Seychelles offshore company formation/registration

A1 Global Formations is able to incorporate a Seychelles International Business Company (IBC). The offshore company registration process usually takes one to two days. If your requirements are more immediate, off-the-shelf Seychelles companies are also available.

Anonymity in a Seychelles offshore company formation/registration

A Seychelles International Business Company (IBC) offers total anonymity and confidentiality and the country itself has not entered any information-sharing agreements with foreign organisations or countries in exchange for financial aid.

The Registrar of Companies does not require information on the beneficial owner and details of the directors and shareholders are not part of the public record. This information is only known by the licensed registered agent of the company and is strictly confidential. Internal files such as the Register of Members, Register of Directors and minutes and resolutions are kept at the offices of the registered agent and also confidential.

The Memorandum of Association and the Articles of Association are the only documents belonging to a Seychelles International Business Company (IBC) held on public record, although these contain no information on the shareholders or beneficial owners.

The offshore financial services sector in particular contributes significantly to the Seychelles’ gross domestic product (GDP) and the government and general public have an interest to maintain and develop the Seychelles’ status as a competitive offshore financial centre.

Disclosure in a Seychelles offshore company formation/registration

There is no requirement for Seychelles International Business Companies (IBCs) to file financial accounts of any kind. The owners of the company can simply arrange the accounts in the best way they feel establishes the financial position with reasonable accuracy.

Shares in a Seychelles offshore company formation

The standard authorised share capital for a Seychelles International Business Company (IBC) is US$ 100,000 with par value and the minimum issued capital is either one share of par value or one share of no par value.

Shares of no par value, bearer shares, registered shares, preference shares, redeemable shares and shares with/without voting rights are all permitted in Seychelles and the authorised share capital may be expressed in any currency.

Tax benefits of a Seychelles offshore company formation

The Seychelles Islands is one of the world’s most popular locations for a low cost offshore company registration. The territorial taxation system means only locally earned income is taxable and income from foreign sources is tax-free. There’s also no income tax, capital gains tax or estate taxes.

To qualify as a Seychelles International Business Company (IBC), the company must not conduct business in Seychelles or own real estate in Seychelles. A special licence is also required for all insurance, banking and registered agent businesses.

Tax liability of a Seychelles offshore company

Providing it does not carry on business in the Seychelles Islands, a Seychelles International Business Company (IBC) is not liable for any taxation. Seychelles International Business Companies (IBCs) are not subject to any duty/tax on income or profits and similarly, shareholders are not subject to tax on income derived from the company.

Seychelles International Business Companies (IBCs) are also exempt from stamp duties on all business-related transactions, including shares, property, debt obligations and other securities.

From the date of incorporation, the exemptions for a Seychelles International Business Company (IBC) hold for 20 years.
