Sole proprietorship offshore: requirements


Which requirements do I have to comply with in order to register Sole proprietorship offshore company? Can one person register an offshore company and serve as a director and shareholder?


In reference to the number of people required to register an offshore company we want to confirm that yes, ONE person is enough. Offshore jurisdictions allow director and shareholder to be the same person and own 100% of shares. Also, you can use Nominees, whose name will appear in country's commercial registry instead of the name of beneficial owner. 

The requirements to register an offshore company are the following:                                       

Copy of Passport 
Apostiled and certified by a notary
Copy of Personal Identity Card 
Apostiled and certified by a notary
Copy of one utility bill not older than 3 months 
Electricity, water, gas, telephone or bank statement.
Bank Reference or bank certificate not older than 3 months
In English
