Process

1. While many offshore jurisdictions offer similar advantages and benefits, there are no one-jurisdiction-fits all. Our advisors will discuss your needs and goals and ask you the right questions to help determine which jurisdictions are right for you.

2. Defining the objectives of the corporation will help establish which legal structure is right for you. Our advisors will assist in setting up the corporation along with any related services.

3. Choosing a local resident agent is key in establishing a well-defined foundation that adheres to local laws and offers the corporation the most protection and privacy. As this is an ongoing relationship, it is advisable to set up an offshore foundation with a reputable and trusted firm.

4. Each jurisdiction will have its own setup process and set of due diligence processes. Anguilla requires clients to fulfill KYC (Know Your Client) by proving their identity with proof of address, as well as completing a simple form to provide the necessary information to set the corporation up.

5. Once the required documentation is received, the provider can then file the corporation deed, creating a legal entity in the registry.

6. After the corporation is set up, clients can request any additional services such as business licenses, permits, banking, etc.

7. Annual fees including resident agent and tax/maintenance fee must be paid in order to keep the corporation in good standing with the tax offices in Anguilla. Financial statements are required to be maintained, though filing of the statements is not required.
