The Benefits of Incorporating in Seychelles.

Seychelles is a popular offshore financial center and a growing international company formation market which provides lots of benefits for companies. Companies formed in Seychelles are governed by the International Business Companies Act of 1994, and employ a mixed common and civil law system.

Moreover, Seychelles boasts one of the world’s fastest corporate formations which can be done within 3 days. Only 1 director and 1 shareholder are required to form a company (which can be a person or legal entity) and they do not have to be residents of Seychelles.

Seychelles also has perhaps one of the lowest annual government fees. It also has 0% offshore tax and bilateral tax treaties with 28 countries. International Business Companies which do not derive income from Seychelles are not required to pay taxes in Seychelles or to report their financials or file an annual return with the Seychelles tax authorities. This makes it popular for such offshore companies to be used for estate planning, wealth management, holding companies and to conduct trading globally.

Furthermore, details of the corporate members are not divulged on a public registry which ensures privacy and confidentiality.
