The Seychelles International Business Company is a useful alternatives to offshore companies established in jurisdictions such as the British Virgin Islands.
In December 1994 the Seychelles enacted legislation enabling the registration of International Business Companies, International Trusts and the licensing of International (free) Trade Zone Companies. More recent legislation covers the licensing of offshore banks, offshore Insurance, mutual funds activities and the regulating of a securities industry. The new laws were a result of intensive studies of long established offshore jurisdictions and world-wide trust legislation.
Although not dissimilar to those of the well-established offshore jurisdictions such as the Cayman, the laws take a most comprehensive, modern and attractive approach to the establishment and operation of offshore companies, mutual funds, offshore banking, offshore insurance and free port activities.
Seychelles is one of the fastest IBC registrars in the world. The International Business Companies Act, 1994, governs the operations of offshore companies. The registration process in Seychelles is straightforward.
As an independent nation, the Seychelles is able to legislate based on what is best for the business community and the nation rather than be forced to adhere to the dictates of a mother country which has an agenda different from its own, a situation which now plagues jurisdictions such as the British Virgin Islands, the Isle of Man, etc.
