What are the Benefits of Registering a Company in Nevis?

6 good reasons to register a BC in Nevis:

  1. you can fully own the company even if you are a non-resident of Nevis and you reside in any other country
  2. liability is limited to the shares contributed by the participant
  3. the company (company shares) may be owned by one person
  4. he or she may be the sole director of a company in Nevis
  5. corporations in Nevis offer a high degree of personal data protection: information about owners, directors and officers is not publicly available
  6. at the moment Nevis offers zero taxation (if there is no physical presence of business or management on the island)

Nevis is considered a classic offshore. This gives certain advantages when you register a company, but also brings certain challenges. In particular, international organizations and the authorities of major countries are pursuing a policy of deoffshorization, accusing offshore companies of helping to erode the tax base and evade taxes.

Offshore companies, including Nevis, have decided to comply with international standards. As a result, the island country is ready for the exchange of tax information (bank account data), complies with EU requirements not to be blacklisted, and changes tax legislation.

The previous rules which allowed non-resident companies not to pay corporate income tax were valid until June 30, 2021. However, the situation has not changed much.

Resident companies are taxed at the rate of 33%, and non-residents pay 33% on income earned in St. Kitts and Nevis. The international income of a non-resident company is not subject to tax. To remain a non-resident company, you have to avoid management from the island or physical presence (of a sales representative, for example) in the country.

The island remains a profitable jurisdiction for business registration, asset ownership, and protection, and an LLC in Nevis is especially suitable for this purpose.

You can be the sole company owner, and you will need only one director in this case. If you decide to increase the number of shareholders, at least 3 directors will be needed. Legal entities can be nominated directors, too.

After registration, a Nevis company can use nominee directors, shareholders, and managers. The positions of President and Treasurer must be held by private persons.

The directors, shareholders and officers of a Nevis company can be residents of any country.

The recommended authorized capital at company registration in Nevis is $50,000, but you can just pay for one 1-dollar share for one shareholder.

At the moment, Nevis requires keeping accounting records but does not require submitting them or conducting an audit. We highly recommend that you keep adequate records, though, for the following reasons:

  • You need proof of the legal origin of funds.
  • Reporting makes it easier to control cash flows.
  • Banks require reporting to open accounts, especially for offshore companies, which adds to quite a complicated procedure of opening an account they have to undergo
  • Nevis may impose additional requirements at any time under pressure from international partners. It seeks not to do more than is necessary, but reporting is an important point in international criticism aimed at offshore companies

Registration of a BC in Nevis is suitable for the following cases:

  • You have a lot of shareholders at present or you are planning to expand the list of shareholders and transfer shares to third parties (including inheritance).
  • A BC registered in Nevis is the only option to use if you are setting up a trust in Nevis (which is a powerful, secure instrument for storing assets and increasing capital with a high degree of personal data confidentiality). An LLC can own the trust, which jointly gives an incredible level of personal data protection.
  • You need more flexibility in the company name if you use appropriate abbreviations: Ltd, S.A., A.G., limited, etc.
