Company formation Marshall Islands

Non-resident domestic corporation

The biggest advantages of the non-resident domestic corporation, apart from complete exemption from taxation, is high level of confidentiality – one of the highest in the world. The registration authority does not have information on company shareholders. The data is solely in the hands of a licenced registration agent who is legally obliged not to disclose it. Information on shareholders and later board members is not collected and processed by state administration. To put it shortly, there are no official documents or registers based on which it would be possible to identify company shareholders.

Non-resident domestic corporations have flexible structure, in the basic scenario, the company may have one director and one shareholder as well as a secretary but more complex structures are also possible. The shareholder, director and secretary may be a private person or a company, including foreign companies. Using nominee services is permitted here as well.

Non-resident domestic corporations are very easy to manage, as there is no obligation to prepare annual financial reports, and accountancy is required only on a basil level and is not subject to audit. There is also no obligation to hold shareholders’ meetings or board meetings, and if need be they make take place anywhere in the world, also via phone.

Companies in the Marshall Islands are set up incredibly fast, it is possible within one day.

Non-resident domestic corporations are most often used for managing and protecting assets, tax optimisation, real estate management, as bank account and securities account holders, patent and trademark holders, ship holders, consultancy and marketing companies, and also for international trade.
