1. What types of IBC's are allowed?

All IBC's that conduct their businesses outside Seychelles are allowed, provided their business is not banking, insurance, re-insurance or trust. Limited Life Companies are allowed.

2. How do I register an IBC?

  • You would need to do this through a locally licensed registered agent.
  • You would normally submit the name of the desired IBC to the agent who would seek a name approval. This is granted instantly. Once the Memorandum & Articles of Association of the company are presented to the Registrar and these comply with the law, a certificate of incorporation may be issued.
  • The Registrar's office is automated, which enables incorporation to be done within 24 hours.

3. Who are the agents?

The list of the agents is contained separately, link at bottom of page.

4. How much will it cost to incorporate an IBC?

  • The registered agents have their own fees to incorporate a company and these will depend on what level of services are required. What is legislated, however is that of the incorporation fees for the Registrar. These are fixed as follows:
    • US$ 100 if authorised share capital is less that US$ 5,000
    • US$ 300 if the authorised share capital does not exceed US$ 50.000
    • US$ 1,000 if the authorised share capital exceeds US$ 50.000
  • The annual renewal fee is the same as above.
  • There is no minimum share capital required and any currency may denominate the share capital.
  • An important feature of the Seychelles IBC Act is that the incorporation fees are fixed for life. In other words, even if the annual renewal fees are increased in the future, a company incorporated before such an increase came into effect will not be affected adversely. If the fees were decreased, however, the same company would be entitled to pay according to the decrease in fees.
  • All IBC's are subject to zero taxation in Seychelles.

  • Yes, provided the office is used for making or maintaining professional contact with counsel and attorneys, accountants, bookkeepers, trust companies, management companies, investment advisers or other similar persons carrying on business within Seychelles or to prepare or maintain books and records of the company within Seychelles.
  • Yes. All IBC's have automatic access to a foreign exchange account in Seychelles should they wish to have one.

9. Is confidentiality granted to IBC's and what information is public?

  • Yes. All proceedings in respect of civil matter involving an IBC shall be heard by a Judge in Chambers.
