Corporate Services

Incorporating international or local companies, forming trusts, and business valuations are just some of the corporate services Barrett & Partners offer.

International Company Incorporation

International Companies (IC’s) are ideal for those who wish to have a company registered in Vanuatu, but do not do any business within Vanuatu. IC’s are not permitted to do business within Vanuatu.

The process to incorporate an international company is relatively simple and can usually be completed within 48 hours following receipt and submission of the required information.

Local Company Incorporation

Local Companies are permitted to do business both within and outside of Vanuatu. Local Companies take approximately 48 hours to incorporate once applications are lodged with the Vanuatu Financial Services Commission (VFSC).

Local companies need only one shareholder (resident or non-resident), and at least one natural person acting as director. This information is available to the public. We can provide the service of nominee shareholders if required and this is included in our annual representation fee. Declarations of Trust are executed to link the beneficial owners to the company. It is also possible to set up a Trust to act as the beneficial owner of the company.
