It is a legal requirement that an International Business Company should have at least 1 shareholder, 1 director, a secretary and registered office. Every company should have at least one shareholder. If the beneficial shareholders require complete anonymity, then our own companies or private individuals in certain cases can be used to hold the shares on trust without the names of the beneficial shareholders being disclosed publicly. If the beneficial shareholders do not need anonymity, then the shares may be registered in their names. We can provide you with nominee director services. We can also act as the secretary of the company on your behalf. Furthermore we can provide you with a registered office address.
Why have nominees?
They can act on your behalf during the initial registration process and open bank accounts for you, etc. without you physically being present in Cyprus you will be guaranteed full confidentiality and anonymity but in practice, you will be the beneficiary of this company. In all cases, beneficial owners are supplied with a trust deed and an instrument of transfer authorising the nominees to hold shares on trust for the undisclosed beneficiaries.
