Offshore Company Formation Providers

Offshore company formation providers are trained professionals that are appointed and licensed in a jurisdiction to provide offshore company formation services.  These professionals are often referred to as offshore corporate service providers or offshore agents, but are all offshore company formation providers, most of whom are involved in offshore company related services.

Offshore company formation providers are regulated by specific laws that dictate offshore business codes and ethics for providing offshore services.  Jurisdictions require that registered agents are resident and in some cases offshore company formation providers are required along with secretaries who provide registered office for offshore companies registered in the territory.  This means that offshore jurisdictions require registered agents to be residents so that offshore companies can be tracked, maintained within reach and establish a form of physical presence in the jurisdiction.  This is important for reminding offshore companies through resident registered offshore company formation providers of upcoming or passed dates for the payment of annual maintenance fees, important notices, court orders and other correspondence that are received at the registered office. 

Offshore company formation providers work via the internet and are therefore expected to possess the necessary technical and professional skills and resources for the upkeep and execution of their services.  Nowadays, different online programmes and services provided by telecommunication companies make it possible to speak to anyone anywhere in the world for free or at very low rates.  In this way, offshore company formation providers are able to provide their services and keep in contact with their customers without being a significant source of expense to the customer.  Via email, text messages or online chat forum, customers can send and submit messages to their agents or offshore company formation providers to request information regarding their services.

It is important to shop around before picking any particular offshore company formation provider to incorporate an offshore company or to obtain any other offshore service like offshore insurance, investment and brokerage services or trustee services.  Asking friends of close family members about their experience with offshore company services and the agents they have worked with could be a way to obtain references and information for company formation providers offshore.  Before incorporating or signing up for any other offshore company service, it is always  wise to be informed, ask questions and obtain detailed responses on matters that are new or unknown regarding offshore company formation, the use of offshore companies and additional services or facilities that are available to offshore companies to assist with carrying out their operations.

An offshore company formation provider must always be reliable and professional. Most legislation have provisions that enable customers to change their offshore company formation provider and for the offshore company formation provider to present a statement of no longer wanting to represent a particular company if for any reason, the offshore company or the service provider is difficult to work with or offers unsatisfactory services.  Likewise, an offshore company may locate to another jurisdiction if disappointed or dissatisfied with the jurisdiction in which it is currently registered and incorporated through a process known as redomiciliation or continuation.  Once an offshore company has successfully continued to another jurisdiction, it is no longer governed by the laws of the former jurisdiction.
