Marshall Islands: the Fastest IBCs on the Planet?

Many foreign entrepreneurs are currently putting business re-domiciliation to an offshore jurisdiction as their top priority. However, sometimes they venture on their own and discover that the whole thing is not as straightforward as it seemed. You go through a full cycle of the international business structure (IBC) registration and amount to nothing: you’ve got the company you wanted and fail to get an operational account, for example. Wish to avoid such situations? We at Offshore Pro Group are here to provide the support you need in realizing your aspirations without much hassle and far quicker than you can imagine, which may be an essential point for you.

Fastest IBCs

Some say that offshore entity formation is easy, while others waste a lot of time and money to end up with some kind of pyrrhic victory. Who is right and who is wrong? 

Well, success is dependent on many factors. Failures do occur, and the reasons may include the legal ignorance of the entity founders, mistakes in applications you file, or non-conformity with the requirements regarding the economic and real presence of a foreign entity in the offshore jurisdiction. If you feel that it may be hard to cope with all this, you will need a reliable expert (and we have them!) to help you minimize these risks and stay focused on your business rather than red tape issues. 

The founder’s presence during the offshore company registration process is often a mandatory condition, and many entrepreneurs are too busy to fly halfway around the world just to attend a 5-minute formal interview or put a signature on some document. Many entrepreneurs find it inconvenient – but fortunately, we can spare you the hassle.

The sole jurisdiction where IBCs can really be opened online within 24-48 hours is the Marshall Islands. The Offshore Pro Group’s convenient service package includes comprehensive business structure formation with a business account, office premises, and a dedicated local agent.

IBC in the Marshall Islands – Outline

The International Business Company (IBC), which may also be referred to as Non-Resident Domestic Corporation (NRDC), is an offshore foreign entity that international investors opt for in the Marshall Islands in the overwhelming majority of cases. It gives the right to undertake any international activity except for certain dedicated niches (insurance, trusts formation, banking, and financial services). 

Some important points on substance for prospective IBC owners:

  1. Under the current Economic Substance Regulations adopted in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the legal persons with the status of Marshall Islands tax residents, including Foreign Maritime Entities (FME), have to file a declaration of economic presence (substance) via the Registrar’s portal.
  2. These requirements are applicable if your business structure has a management center in the Marshall Islands and/or carries out relevant activities (financing, trusts, shipping, insurance, etc.).
  3. IBC structures which can confirm that they pay taxes outside the Marshall Islands and do not comply with the above substance requirements in full or at all are NOT demanded to be compliant with the provisions for real presence in the Marshall Islands.

Ownership and management of private yachts are not regarded as a shipping business in the Marshall Islands, which means that no substance requirements need to be complied with.

What You Get When You Form an Offshore Structure (IBC) in the Marshall Islands

Foreign entrepreneurs often opt for the Marshall Islands as a really good place to set up international business companies (IBCs). Why is it? Well, they simply value the benefits available on the island with its legislative framework: 

  • No restrictions on IBCs to be in full possession of a foreign owner and have no local owners or shareholders.
  • The financial obligations imposed on IBC shareholders are limited by the number of shares that each of them possesses. 
  • An IBC you establish in the Marshall Islands is under no obligation to keep books, file tax returns, or submit annual account books that record its operations. Nevertheless, it is important to inform the registrar on an annual basis about the substance, providing proof that the company has a real economic presence on the island – or evidence of management and tax residency status in another state. 
  • Confidentiality – absolutely all the information concerning IBC owners is kept in a closed registry, and sharing it with third parties is strictly forbidden. The Marshall Islands favor the use of the nominee service, thus raising the degree of beneficiary’s anonymity. 
  • An IBC whose source of profit is in no way connected to the Marshall Islands is a completely tax-exempt structure (no corporate or property taxes, stamp duty, etc.). 
  • No foreign exchange controls are imposed on international companies. 
  • An IBC can be formed through our partners and specialists in a matter of 24-48 hours, being the swiftest procedure available in the world enabling an offshore entity establishment.

Note: Keep in mind that a fixed state fee and registered agent’s fee are payable for the establishment and renewal of IBC’s operations in the Marshall Islands.

How to Form an IBC in the Marshall Islands – Personal and Remote Format

Are you going to establish an international company in the Republic of the Marshall Islands in the near future? Please carefully study the current corporate law and make an analysis taking into account the country of tax residence of the founder and shareholders.

The entire IBC formation process consists of several phases:

  • Select a name for your business entity.
  • Rent an office, get legal and postal addresses. 
  • Find a registered agent locally (this is an obligatory thing to do for a non-resident wishing to establish an operational structure in the Marshall Islands).
  • Select the company name to comply with the existing demands and restrictions. 
  • Prepare constituent documents and transfer the package to the Registrar.
  • Obtain a certificate of incorporation.
  • Open a business account by picking out a bank and going through the entire procedure set out in the regulations. 

Note: When you decide to establish an entity and finally select the Marshall Islands as the jurisdiction, pause and think of the extra time and money required to hire a translator, search for an agent, and visit a bank. The IBC registered agent’s fee covers all costs, including reviewing your documents for possible mistakes. No second of your precious time will be wasted!
