The Seychelles are a group of 115 islands situated off the East Coast of Africa, in the Indian ocean. This location, combined with its offshore legal oversight, makes it one of the world’s most widely used offshore financial centres. In 1994, statutory regulations were established for international companies, which saw an immediate, rapid rise in the number of businesses being incorporated on the islands, particularly in the capital city, Victoria.
With one of the official languages being English (the other is French), and robust systems in place to assist corporations, people looking to start a company in Seychelles are rarely disappointed with their choice.

Benefits of Seychelles
Seychelles have several obvious benefits that make it the jurisdiction of choice for many businessmen across the world.
The Seychelles are an excellent choice for companies looking for a base. There is no public registry or shareholder information, which means that companies often choose the islands for anonymity and for asset protection. In addition, the legal system is very stable, so you shouldn’t expect any changes to requirements.
It is exceptionally easy to establish a company in the Seychelles, with one shareholder required, no minimum share capital, and a 3-day start-up time. Once this process is complete, there is very little bureaucracy, with no financial statement submissions, audits or tax returns necessary.
IBCs have 0% tax liability in revenue (upon payment of a $100 annual fee to the government). In addition, 100% foreign ownership is perfectly legal, with no restrictions on AGM locations and no foreign exchange controls.
