A guide to incorporating a business
The right way to properly meet all your needs

Choosing where to base your business is an important decision no longer based simply on where you pay the least amount of tax.

There is a whole host of things to consider:

Jurisdiction

Choose your jurisdiction carefully. There are so many things to be taken into consideration when deciding where to incorporate a company.

Take professional advice
Once you have found a jurisdiction you like, you should not proceed any further until you have taken legal and/or tax advice to ensure what you are planning to do is achievable both inside and outside of the jurisdiction.

Understanding your business

It is important the service provider you select understands your business and what you are looking to achieve. Find out what expertise or experience they have in your sector. Are there licensing requirements they can help you with? Do they understand operating a business globally? Do they have expertise in other jurisdictions if required? They understand your goals and are able to communicate with you are essential to a long-term relationship.

The right business structure

A properly structured and managed company can provide substantial tax benefits, protect assets, improve business efficiency, reduce costs and maintain confidentiality.

An improperly configured company is a recipe for disaster for the owner and his business.

The necessity for some or all of the optional services will always depend on the actual circumstances of each individual client, and his business. These options should best be considered before placing an order for incorporation, although their integration at a later stage is also possible.

What will it cost?

Fees will vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and from provider to provider and will also depend on exactly what services you require. Most providers will agree a fixed fee for the provision of certain services such as the provision of a registered office, annual director’s fees and opening a bank account. It might be difficult to work out exactly what administration services will cost particularly for a new company and some providers might offer a fixed fee for the first period to assist with budgeting, however, a ‘pay as you go’ arrangement can often be more cost effective with work being charged on a ‘time spent’ basis.

Establish a permanent presence

Setting up a company which has its registered office on a brass plate in a low-cost jurisdiction is highly unlikely to be enough to convince anyone it has been set up to do anything other than avoid paying tax. It is therefore essential to establish a real presence by conducting as much business activity in the jurisdiction as possible. This might include, but is not limited to, having local directors, maintaining an office, employing local staff, hosting your website or having a local bank account.

Opening and running a bank account

Generally, it has become more difficult to open bank accounts globally, but your provider should have a range of options they will be able to offer you. In many instances the bank will insist a bank account is operated and controlled locally by your provider. Again, this can sometimes be difficult for the client to understand but viewing access can be granted and they will be able to authorise payments before they are made by the provider if required. In well-regulated jurisdictions staff responsible for operating client bank accounts are integrity checked by the local financial services regulator which provides a great level of comfort.
