Set-up-a-subsidiary-in-Seychelles.jpgBoth foreign investors and companies have the possibility of doing business in Seychelles through various business forms. Even if the international business company (IBC) is the most employed type of structure used by foreign investors, companies have several choices. Among these are the branch office, the subsidiary, and the representative office.

Our company registration agents in Seychelles can explain the differences between the types of structures available for foreign companies interested in setting up a presence in this country.

What is a Seychelles subsidiary?

First of all, a subsidiary is one of the best forms of doing business in Seychelles, as it enables a foreign company to have an independent presence on of the islands of this country. Even coordinated by the parent company, the subsidiary is also allowed to conduct other activities apart from those of the foreign business.

The most employed type of structure used for setting up a subsidiary in Seychelles is the limited liability company, also known as the proprietary company. There is no need for a local partner when creating a Seychelles subsidiary company.

Our company formation consultants in Seychelles can assist with the registration of a limited liability company.
