IBC in the Marshall Islands and an account with the Global Bank of Commerce Ltd, Antigua and Barbuda from 5,999 EUR
We will assist you in getting an international business company (corporation) registered in the Marshall Islands and in opening a corporate bank account in the Cook Islands with the Global Bank of Commerce. The whole procedure is carried out remotely. This is of special importance since the current pandemic announcement.
The Marshall Islands can be considered the last old-school offshore. The jurisdiction offers zero taxation, a high degree of data privacy, remote and fast registration, flexible legislation.
How can such a small country provide such a spectrum in the times of deoffshorization? This is most likely due to the fact that the Marshalls are associated with the United States, actually being a part of this state, as well as Puerto Rico. Loosening is obvious.
At the same time, this connection causes certain fears for those who seek to protect their information. As practice shows, as soon as the U.S. want any information about something, they can put pressure on any country. And on the associated state even more so. Therefore, if your task is to hide the data from the U.S., you should not expect this. According to the law, personal information should be stored and provided at the request of the authorities or the registration agent.
Also, the Marshalls will not work for those who are looking for a jurisdiction to register a bank, an insurance company or a gambling business. Please do not hesitate to write us to email@example.com and we will tell you where opening such businesses is appropriate and useful.
Otherwise, it is an extremely interesting, beneficial and accessible jurisdiction.
Register an IBC in the Marshall Islands
An international business company in the Marshall Islands is a great instrument for strategically minded businessmen. It is especially advantageous to use an IBC corporation for those who plan to attract investments and need a simple instrument for selling their business shares.
It is IBCs in the Marshall Islands that are used to attract several rounds of investment, to enter the IPO. Dozens of companies have taken advantage of the jurisdiction and entered large and internationally recognized exchanges.
When choosing a name for your IBC, you should know that it can be in any language, provided it is written in Latin letters. Of course, it should not repeat the names of other companies.
It is allowed to use almost any word in the name to refer to a company: Limited, Ltd., A.G., Corporation, Corp, S.A., Incorporated, Inc.
There are words that cannot be used since they can be misleading: Bank, Insurance, Assurance, Re-Insurance, Trust, Foundation, Charity.
The company must have an authorized capital. Most often it is declared in the amount of 50,000 dollars, but paid in the amount of just 1 dollar. Should you decide to make your authorized capital more than USD 50,000 (and if there would be more than 500 shares without par value), you would have to pay an additional tax.
You will need the following papers to register a company:
- Copies of passports of the founders and directors (if they are individuals), notarized;
- Proof of the address of residence, i.e. utility bills no older than 2 months with the name (get it translated and certified) or a copy of your internal passport with the address of residence;
- Company’s documents is case you use a corporate director and secretary;
- Permit that gives us the right to use your personal information within 5 years. This will allow us to provide you those services remotely.
Allow us to remind you that despite the fact that the registers of beneficiaries and directors are closed for public access, companies are committed to keeping them up-to-date and truthful. Every year from the date of your company’s registration or from November 9, 2018 (for companies registered earlier), it is necessary to check that the existing list of directors, beneficiaries, managers and other officials, as well as their addresses, is relevant.
Moreover, since October 2019, the Marshall Islands has left the blacklist of the EU offshores. The country is implementing all the requirements put forward by the European Union in the area of information sharing. As a result, the reputation of the jurisdiction and its companies improved and immediately attracted the attention of new businessmen.
