Companies

Companies can be incorporated under two Isle of Man Companies Acts, 1931 Companies Act (akin to UK companies) or 2006 Companies Act (based on the International Business Company Model used in other international centres).

Types of companies that can be incorporated under these Acts include:

  • Limited companies
  • LLCs
  • Unlimited companies
  • Companies limited by guarantee
  • Hybrid companies
  • Protected cell companies

Administration of 2006 Act companies is undertaken by licensed corporate service providers. Compared to 1931 Act companies the 2006 Act company has fewer filing and administrative requirements making the 2006 Act company an attractive and flexible solution.

Key advantages of 2006 Act companies:

  • Privacy
  • Single director
  • Flexible accounting requirements
  • No statutory audit requirement
  • Shares can be issued with or without a par value
  • Reduced capital maintenance requirements
  • Flexible share structuring

Foundations

A Foundation is a separate legal entity in its own right, without members or shareholders, and is usually established to reflect the Founder’s wishes, who may be an individual or a corporate entity. Foundations are often regarded as a cross between a company and a Trust as they have characteristics of both.

There are many reasons for setting up a Foundation, such as wealth protection, inheritance tax planning, or avoidance of forced heirship rules. A Foundation can be the equivalent of a Family Trust, used to benefit successive generations of family members; or as a charitable Foundation operating similarly to a charitable Trust. Foundations have the benefit of being recognised in both common law and civil law jurisdictions.

Our Foundation services include:

  • Establishing foundation
  • Provision of council members
  • Provision of enforcer, if required
  • Registered office
  • Administration services
  • Statutory maintenance
  • Banking arrangements and cash management
  • Accounting
  • Tax and VAT Services
