Public information about an offshore company


Question

What information can be found about an offshore company in the Companies Registry?

Answer

The information that we could find in the commercial register if we requested it would be: the full name of the company, the date of incorporation, auditing reports, and any other public information. For example, in the case of Nevis (one of the safest and most secretive jurisdictions in the world) when the company is registered there is no requirement to include the names of the officers, directors or shareholders of the company in the Public Registry. Such information is confidential and cannot be disclosed by any official, lawyer, notary etc. Otherwise when revealing this information they will have a penalty of jail and high economic sanction. In Panama, the law is a bit different, since it is resolved through the use of directors and shareholders whose information should appear in the Public Registry.
