Company Formation

We can help you register companies in Cyprus and in many other onshore and offshore jurisdictions, such as, Belize, Seychelles, British Virgin Islands (BVI), UK, UAE and Luxemburg.

Alternatively, to save time, you may choose to purchase one of our previously registered companies. These companies, which are known as “Shelf Companies”, are companies registered by us and left with no activity, assets or liabilities. Consequently, you can purchase one of these companies and start using it immediately without going through all the procedures of registering a new one. Our portfolio of shelf companies includes both Cyprus and offshore companies registered in a number of offshore jurisdictions.

For inquiries about registering your own Cyprus or offshore company and for the list of the available already registered shelf companies please contact us.

Company formation process

Company formation, which is often called company incorporation or registration, is a very straight forward process.

In order to register your own company, or to purchase one of our already registered Cyprus or offshore shelf companies, all you have to do is to complete some simple forms and send us the documents required to comply with our Due Diligence / Know Your Client requirements.

If you purchase one of our already registered shelf companies you will be able to start using it as soon as we receive and review the documents that you will send us. On the other hand, if you wish to register a new company we will submit the company formation application form to the Registrar of Companies of the relevant jurisdiction. The company formation process can take anything from two to thirty days depending on the jurisdiction. Therefore, should time be of the essence it is strongly recommended to purchase one of our already registered shelf companies. Typically, the time required to register a company in Cyprus is about twenty-one days, whereas, to register an offshore company in Belize two.


Information required for company formation

The relevant company formation forms, as well as those required to purchase one of our already registered Cyprus or offshore shelf companies, include information about the company, its activities, any related companies and the people behind it.
