  • Together we come up with the best solution (i.e. products/entities + services).
  • Once agreed we begin working with the client to set up the Seychelles company and any related entities (e.g. private foundation, offshore trust, etc.).

Preparation of Seychelles company formation documents

Sterling's professional team then prepares all of the necessary documents required to complete the Seychelles company formation depending on the type of company and according to requirements of each client.  The basic documents relating to a Seychelles company formation include the following:

  • Memorandum of Association
  • Articles of Association
  • Resolution appointing the directors
  • First resolutions of the directors (organisational)
  • Share register
  • Register of directors
  • Share certificates (optional)
  • Declaration of Trust (where nominee shareholder services provided)
  • Power of Attorney (where professional director services are requested)

Seychelles company incorporation

The next step in the Seychelles company setup process is to register the necessary company documents with the relevant Seychelles company registrar. Seychelles is a bit unique in that there are two Seychelles company registries (i.e. equivalent to UK Companies House) depending on the type of Seychelles formation.  The Seychelles Financial Services Authority is the Seychelles offshore company registry (i.e. for Seychelles IBCs) and the Registrar General, Companies Division is the Seychelles company registry for all other Seychelles companies.

The following are the procedures for Seychelles company incorporation for each of the two Seychelles company registries:

Seychelles offshore  company incorporation (i.e. Seychelles IBC) procedures

  • The documents required to be filed for a Seychelles offshore company incorporation (i.e. Seychelles IBC) include the following:
    • Memorandum of Association
    • Articles of Association
  • Note that the details of the directors and shareholders are not filed with the Seychelles offshore company registry.
  • Upon lodging the above company documents, it takes 1 day or less to complete the Seychelles company incorporation process and Sterling then collects the stamped documents and Certificate of Incorporation.

Seychelles company incorporation procedures for other Seychelles companies (i.e. Seychelles CSL and Seychelles PCC)

  • An application form must be completed and provided to the Seychelles Financial Services Authority along with the company documents to be registered:
    • Seychelles CSL Application Procedures
    • Seychelles PCC Application Procedures
  • Once the Seychelles FSA is satisfied that all of the application requirements of the relevant Act have been met, the company documents are then delivered and registered with the Registrar General, Companies Division to complete the incorporation.  The company documents include the following:
    • Memorandum of Association
    • Articles of Association
    • Particulars of Directors and Secretary
    • Notice of Place of Registered Office
  • Thereafter it usually takes 5 days to complete the Seychelles company incorporation process.
