The parent documents are necessary at the time or branch registration in this jurisdiction, and furthermore, a local representative must be appointed. Entrepreneurs should consider the following conditions when opening a branch in Seychelles:
•    offer complete details about the parent company, the representative, the business address, the share capital;

All the documents of the company must be translated into the English language and then notarized. We can offer comprehensive support and guidelines for foreigners who want to register a company in Seychelles, including branches.

How branches work in Seychelles

Branches are normally subject to lower expenses and are seen as permanent establishments from a taxation point of few, remembering the fact that such entities are not considered separate legal structures. Likewise, branches in Seychelles must obtain approvals from the parent company for all the operations in the insular state. As for the annual financial statements of a branch in Seychelles, these must be submitted to the Trade Register, alongside with the ones of the parent company. It is good to know that branches are considered reasonable entities which present low risks and have fewer obligations compared to separate legal entities.
