Incorporate in Vanuatu
Set up a Vanuatu Company
Vanuatu is a pure tax haven; there are no direct taxes both for individuals and corporations.
Company law in Vanuatu is based in English Common Law. Companies in Vanuatu are governed by the Companies Act, except International Companies, the most common offshore entity, which are governed by the International Companies Act. This type of company offers more flexibility and easier administration.
Companies registered under the International Companies Act are entitled to do international business and may have restrictions to trade within Vanuatu, own a real estate interest within the territory, except the lease of an office where it conducts its management, and hold banking, trust or insurance licenses.
The name of the company must include a word or abbreviation that denotes limited liability, such as Ltd., Corp., Inc., S.A., S.R.L., B.V., Sdn Bhd, GmbH, … etc. The name can be in any language.
A Vanuatu international company is commonly used for holding tangible and intangible assets, asset protection and confidentiality, gaming, estate planning, trading, securities dealer, holding vessels, among others.
