Establish-an-offshore-company-in-LiechtensteinOne of the most sought types of companies by foreign investors all over the world is the offshore company. Liechtenstein is one of the European countries allowing foreign companies and enterprisers to set up this type of company.

The Liechtenstein offshore company falls under the same regulation as any other business form agreed by the Principality’s government: the Civil and Commercial Laws. Most of the times, offshore companies are also known as International Business Companies (IBCs). Our company registration consultants in Liechtenstein can offer a broad definition of the offshore company.

Requirements to set up an offshore company in Liechtenstein

According to the Commercial Law, the offshore company may only take the form an establishment (Anstalt) in Liechtenstein. The minimum share capital required to establish an offshore company is 30,000 CHF and must be deposited in a Liechtenstein bank account upon the registration of the company. The company must also have at least one resident director and a registered address in Liechtenstein.

The interesting fact about the Liechtenstein establishment is that is has no correspondent in other European countries which is what makes this country appealing for foreign investors seeking to set up offshore companies.

The main documents to be prepared when registering an offshore company with the Trade Register in Liechtenstein are the formation deed and the articles of association. Our company formation agents in Liechtenstein can prepare these documents.
