What are the differences between a domestic company and a non-resident company?
A domestic LLC or company is one that does business in its home country or in the country where you live. A non-resident company, on the other hand, is registered and incorporated in a jurisdiction other than the original jurisdiction of the resident’s home country.
Here are a few important distinctions between a domestic and a non-resident company:
Domestic businesses are often taxed differently than non-resident companies and they can be forced to pay tariffs or fees on products that they sell locally or import. The primary difference between domestic and non-resident companies is that the tax rate charged by the government in the jurisdiction where a non-resident company is formed is very low if not zero.
Domestic companies have less privacy in their location of incorporation, making them more vulnerable to local government interference. Non-resident companies and their owners have full confidentiality and their corporate information is completely safe.
Office space is a necessity for a domestic company and residence visas are possible depending on the size of the office/work premises. In the case of a non-resident company, there is no requirement to rent office space, and hence it does not allow for the issuance of residence visas.
Domestic companies normally conduct their operations in the country in which they are registered. Offshore companies, on the other hand, are not permitted to do business in their registered jurisdiction.
What do you need before starting the company formation process?
Each jurisdiction that provides offshore company formation has its own set of specifications. This question does not have a one-size-fits-all explanation. The prerequisites can vary depending on the sort of business you want to conduct and where you plan to do it after the company is formed. Here are some factors you should think about before commencing the company formation process:
Choose your company type
To begin, you must choose the type of company that best suits your needs. You can form an LLC, a partnership company, a joint venture, a public limited company and more.

If you are unsure about your choice, our professionals are always there to assist you in choosing a catchy company name. Your chosen business name must be different from any other already existing firm.
Appoint a local director/shareholder
At least one director is required, who may be a natural or a legal person and can be a non-resident, depending on the legal requirements of the country in which your company is formed.
Get a registered local address
You will have to have a physical address in your new company’s jurisdiction that will be utilized as the primary registration address. It will go on all the legal documents. We can help you in obtaining a registered address for your offshore company incorporation.
