An International Company has several advantages:
  • The company registers in the country a legal address and uses services of an intermediary agent (a local).
  • The constitution of the company is a constituent document (analog of the Charter). The Constitution indicates the name of the company, a legal address, tasks and goals, the information about the intermediary (the information about the director is not required).
  • Lack of the “authorized capital”. The registration deadline is 24 hours. When choosing a name, you can use any language (the main condition is the availability of a certified translation into English or French). The company management independently decides on the availability of printing. A company, registered in Vanuatu, is exempted from taxes for 20 years, while there is an annual government fee (considered one of the lowest in the world) - 300 dollars.
