A basic setup with an acceptable minimum of services. Main advantages: low cost and direct operation. The catch: you will be seen managing the offshore company from your own home. Your national tax office may not take it kindly.

This package is designed for those lucky individuals, who live and work in a country where they can afford to be seen as directly owning and managing their own offshore company. This configuration presumes a direct, hands-on operation of the IBC by the company owner.

The annual administration fees for this package, starting from the second year: $410. This includes the Seychelles government fee and the mandatory registered agent service.


(!) Important - if you live in, or hold a passport of a high-tax country with an aggressive and efficient tax office, this is a highly risky setup for you.

(!) The bank account is not included in this package. We recognize that many clients will prefer to open bank accounts with their own bankers, in geographical proximity to their home or business. If required, our professional fee for a bank account introduction starts at $600. A number of selected offshore banks is available.

This package is designed to deal with a critical offshore tax-planning question:

“Where, and by whom is the offshore company actually managed?”

A proper offshore company must be able to demonstrate that it functions “at arms length” from its actual owner. It is not enough to merely register a company in an IBC jurisdiction. To be considered seriously for any tax purposes, the IBC must also be managed from an offshore location!

This package features our in-house professional directorship and business administration service, plus the shareholding service for added confidentiality. The business administration service includes an office (street) address in Seychelles, handling of faxes and business correspondence, execution of contracts and commercial documents, and basic consulting and advice.

This package is designed for those individuals, who live and do business in highly-regulated, high-tax countries. It is for those clients, who prefer not to cut corners.

The annual management fee for this package is $1300, starting from the 2nd year. This includes the Government license fee, registered agent, shareholder service, director and business administration.

(!) The bank account introduction is not included in this package. We recognize that many clients will prefer to open bank accounts with their own bankers, in jurisdictions of their own choice. Our professional fee for a bank account introduction starts at $600. A number of selected offshore banks is available.

Many choose to incorporate an offshore company which subsequently is owned by a foundation. Here the Belize foundation would be used to hold shares in a Seychelles IBC. This way one can get the protection and continuity offered by the foundation and in the same time - engage in commercial activities. Useful to know, that Belize Foundation can be established having charitable or non-charitable purposes.

Why Foundation not Trust?
There are rather similar functions and reasons for establishing a Foundation or a Trust, the difference is the legal structure. The main difference is that Trusts historically originate from common law countries, e.g., England, USA and India, therefore are mainly used by these countries. While Foundation is a product predominant and understandable by the Civil law countries, e.g., France, Germany, Russia, Spain. In reality one can even say, allegorically, that Foundations are Trusts for the countries who do not understand Trusts.

For more complex structures, additional Belize, Seychelles or BVI companies can be formed under the same Foundation at additional fee.

(!) The bank account introduction is not included in this package. We recognize that many clients will prefer to open bank accounts with their own bankers, in jurisdictions of their own choice. Our professional fee for a bank account introduction is USD 600.
