International Company Formation

Stanley Davis Group has over 50 years’ experience in forming international companies. Our team of consultants are on hand to find out about your specific requirements and take you through the process from start to finish. Once your offshore company is set up in your chosen jurisdiction we can also provide a range of expert services to help you in company maintenance.

Incorporating outside the UK with offshore company formation can provide the following benefits:

  •   Tax efficiency and minimisation – it can be advantageous to utilise the low or fixed corporation tax levels of some jurisdictions
  •   Protection of assets – assets held by a non-UK company can enjoy additional anonymity and an enhanced separation of ownership from the beneficiaries
  •   Confidentiality – banks and the registering authorities are understanding of the sensitivity of the international market place and competition, and respect the confidentiality of the corporate structures
  •   Global status – incorporation in the international arena raises the profile of the company to customers and competitors
  •   Trading worldwide – the international company facilitates worldwide trade

Choosing the right jurisdiction

Our in-house international consultants can help with your particular requirements and offer information on:

  •   Company formation and annual renewal fees
  •   Domiciliation requirements in respect of resident officers
  •   Ongoing compliance requirements
  •   Local services, including company administration
  •   Banking facilities and services
  •   Communications internationally
