Free Transfers In
Ask about our FREE TRANSFERS IN special offer.
Do you have an existing NEVIS, BVI, SEYCHELLES, BELIZE or PANAMA company? If it is in good standing, you have the right to transfer it to our registered agent service in those locations.
With our Free Transfer In Service all you normally have to do is sign a power of attorney to us, and we will take care of arranging all the paperwork to change the registered agent. Of course, you should also inform your previous registered agent directly of this change, and if you owe them money they will not agree to the transfer. Offshore Pro Group will pay all the government transfer fees.
If you transfer nominee director and shareholder service to us as well, we will also provide you with a free power of attorney or free declaration of trust as appropriate.
Normally we charge no fee for the transfer in.
How do we get paid? At the time we accept the order we will bill you for the first year of service with us at our normal annual rates. However we will apply that as an advance payment for your next renewal date.
For example: Your company renewal with your old registered agent is due in January 2015, but in February 2014 you decide to transfer the company to us. We will bill you in February 2014 for one year’s service and you should pay this before we complete the process. However, we will apply this one year payment to start in January 2015, so your next renewal will not be due until January 2016.
Please note: the Free Transfer In offer does NOT include any non-essential extras you might request, for example Certificate of Good Standing, Certificate of Incumbency, Apostilles, Courier Fees etc. If you need any of these we will be happy to provide a detailed quotation. Sometimes, although it is against the law and ethical codes, some company managers or registered agents may try to charge exit fees or release fees. Our fee also does not include legal work necessary in extraordinary situations, for example where there are disputes or the previous registered agent has gone out of business etc: for this see our Problem Solver service instead.
Continuation or Redomiciliation from Other Jurisdictions
This is a similar concept to transfers in, but refers to changing not just the registered agent but also the jurisdiction. For example, let’s say you have an existing BVI company but you are no longer comfortable with the fact that BVI is a British territory and is exchanging tax information with the European Union… so you would prefer to move your company elsewhere. Belize would be a great location to move to because its law is almost identical to the BVI.
Provided the jurisdiction of origin allows for redomiciliation in its laws (most do) then we can arrange to transfer your existing company FREE to Belize, Nevis or Seychelles (your choice)
We can accept inbound companies from almost any jurisdiction, including onshore tax planning countries like UK, Cyprus, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore and Switzerland, and also most classic offshore jurisdictions such as Antigua, BVI, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Cook Islands, Costa Rica, Gibraltar, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey, Labuan, Liberia, Marshall Islands, Mauritius, RAK, St Kitts, St Vincent and Grenadines, etc etc.
In this case we also charge no fee for normal transfers, even though you are changing jurisdiction. We just ask you to pay one year’s annual fees up front at the time of the transfer. The main difference is that you will have an extra cost with your old registered agent, because you will need to provide us with up to date certificates from the jurisdiction of origin, and they must be apostilled. In some cases we can help you better by transferring nominee and registered agent first, and then the jurisdiction as a second step. Please contact us for further details on the exact procedure and documentation requirements, as it varies depending on the jurisdiction.
Please note: this free service also does NOT include any non-essential extras you might request once the transfer is completed, for example Certificate of Good Standing, Certificate of Incumbency, Apostilles, Courier Fees etc. If you need any of these we will be happy to provide a detailed quotation. It also does not include any extraordinary fees charged in the jurisdiction of origin. If documents are not in English they must be translated into English (except for Panama, where they must be translated into Spanish) Our fee also does not include legal work necessary in extraordinary situations, for example where there are disputes or the previous registered agent has gone out of business etc: for this see our Problem Solver service instead.
