Marshall Islands Offshore (IBC) Company Formation

Marshall Islands Non-Resident Domestic Corporation

Overview of a Marshall Islands International Business Company (IBC)

A Marshall Islands International Business Company (IBC), known as a Non-Resident Domestic Corporation, is the country’s premier and most popular offshore company formation vehicle.

Its high attractiveness is due to a number of unique advantages, giving Marshall Islands offshore companies an unprecedented array of business possibilities. For example, a Marshall Islands’ company may be taken public, raise capital, carry out third-party trading, act as an investment advisor and conduct business in any activity except banking, trust, insurance or gaming.

Marshall Islands Company Law

A Non-Resident Domestic Company is governed by the Business Corporations Act, which is under the Marshall Islands Associations Law of 1990, exempting all non-resident companies from having to pay any type of local taxes. The jurisdiction has a modernized corporate law that combines elements from both the US and the UK, making it a first class offshore financial centre.

The Marshal Islands has outstanding asset protection legislation and has long declined to collaborate with the OECD on any tax information exchange agreements. Non-Resident Companies are also not required to file audited accounts, annual returns, or submit any financial records, details of its owners or any shareholder of the company, all the details of which are kept confidential. Although the Marshall Islands jurisdiction is largely unknown, it remains one of the best offshore financial destinations in the Pacific.
