The name of the beneficial owner of a Gibraltar Non-Resident Company is not required to be disclosed, and confidentiality is protected by law. Gibraltar takes maintaining confidentiality very seriously. The names of the beneficial owners may only be revealed by order of the Court if there is reason to believe that the firm is engaged in significant criminal behavior.

Legal requirements for company formation in Gibraltar

The Gibraltar Companies Act 2014 simplifies company formation processes in Gibraltar, making the small region more appealing to overseas investors.

Memorandum and Articles of Association 

The Companies Act requires all sorts of companies to first prepare the Memorandum and Articles of Association before being registered in Gibraltar. The updated version of the Memorandum will simply provide the company's name, registered address, approved share capital and liability of its shareholders. Every company's memorandum must include the company's name and the fact that the registered office will be in Gibraltar. Any business limited by shares or by a guarantee should have a memorandum that must also specify that its shareholders' liability is restricted.

The Secretary

Every business is required by law to have a minimum of one secretary. In accordance with current legislation, the company secretary, like the directors, may be a natural person or a company. Additionally, the same regulations that apply to the appointment of directors also apply to the appointment of company secretaries. Moreover, according to the Companies Law, the secretary must work at the company's Gibraltar office. Our Gibraltar offshore company formation professionals also provide nominee secretary services to overseas investors establishing businesses in Gibraltar.

Gibraltar is an offshore haven that entices international business owners with its affordable company establishment and maintenance costs, availability of nominee services, and low tax burden. The jurisdiction is an excellent starting point from which to launch an e-commerce firm, an IT business, an import and export company, a property management company, or any other sort of business endeavor due to its advantageous taxation system, sophisticated infrastructure, reliability, and security. Nothing has to be translated since English is the official language. In Gibraltar, you will be free to do business anywhere in the world. Gibraltar is also excellent for doing online business due to the lower cost of payment options.

The Gibraltar Companies Act 2014 requires all Gibraltar Non-Resident Companies to establish a registered office in Gibraltar. The Company shall maintain its record of directors and shareholders, agendas and resolutions, share transfer papers, and operational and book-keeping information at its registered office location. To be physically present in Gibraltar, a registered office with a registered agent such as a third party should be appointed who can handle the administration. Formationwise may function as your registered agent and offer a registered office for your Gibraltar offshore company formation.

In Gibraltar, there is a legal necessity for there to be at least one shareholder and one director assigned to each company. The Gibraltar Companies Registry is obligated to keep a public record of the directors’ and shareholders’ information pertaining to Gibraltar companies. To maintain your anonymity, you have the option of acting as a corporate director or shareholder in your own name or appointing Formationwise to do so.

A company secretary (a Gibraltar resident) is mandatory who might be a private person or a business. The company secretary is in charge of maintaining the accuracy and integrity of the business’s statutory records. This includes, but is not limited to, making an annual report with Companies House and maintaining the minute book. The role of the company secretary is a crucial one that requires the secretary to be aware of all communications received by the business at its Registered Office at all times. If required, we can offer secretarial services and serve as your company secretary for your Gibraltar business.

Companies in Gibraltar are taxed depending on their place of business. If a legal entity is managed and controlled from inside the nation, it is termed a resident. Income generated in or obtained from the country forms the foundation for taxes. The taxation rules for Gibraltar branches are the same as for any other company. Non-resident companies are taxed exclusively on income earned in the region. Corporate taxes are typically levied at a 10% rate. Gibraltar has no withholding tax on profits, royalties or interest and no capital gains tax. There are no payroll taxes, transfer taxes or real estate taxes.
