International Business Company

Seychelles International Business Company (IBC) is the most versatile type of all offshore corporate entities available in Seychelles. It is very similar to other widely known offshore corporate vehicles, especially the British Virgin Islands IBC. Currently, there are over 20,000 IBC's registered in the Republic of Seychelles. About 600 new companies are registered every month.

Seychelles International Business Company is simple and cost-effective form of offshore corporation. The IBC pays lower government and administration fees, it is not subject to the requirement of filing accounts and returns and does not require a complicated management structure, therefore it is easy to have and maintain. It is a good choice for customers whose business is merely international and not tied-up to particular home country, - like many Internet businesses are.

The Seychelles IBC is a completely tax-free corporation, insofar as it complies with a few simple rules of operation, the main of which is non-operating within the Seychelles. By definition of the law, a Seychelles IBC is not subject to any tax or duty on income or profits. It is exempt from stamp duties on transfer of property and from exchange control. The law provides that all exemptions for a Seychelles IBC shall remain in force for a period of twenty years from the date of incorporation of an IBC.

Apart from being completely tax-free, Seychelles IBC provides one of the fastest incorporations in the world, low maintenance costs, no reporting, no need to file accounts or annual returns, no requirement to file records of directors and shareholders, the availability of bearer shares, no information-sharing agreements, strict confidentiality provisions protected by law and court system.

The minimum annual license fee payable by an IBC to the Seychelles Government is $100, which is among the most competitive IBC fees in the world.

The offshore company formation, taxation and structure of a Seychelles IBC is regulated by the Seychelles International Business Companies Act 1994. You can download the full text of the Seychelles IBC Act 1994 from our Download section.
