Company Registration

      Registering and Incorporating a Company in the Cayman Islands

      Cayman’s attractive alternative tax regime and its maturity as a financial jurisdiction guarantees that you’ll find the returns, skills and know-how for all of your financial business operations. Some of the benefits include having no direct taxes on income, as well as corporate, inheritance, and capital gains or gifts. Plus, the robust reporting structure and cooperation with international legislative bodies ensures that you are up to date with relevant laws.

      One of the first steps to setting up an offshore company in Cayman is getting the business incorporated and registered. As the country’s first full-service management company, Cayman Management provides affordable, fast and efficient incorporation and registration services for Cayman Islands companies of any kind. We also provide company formation services for companies in many of the other major offshore jurisdictions through our network of service providers.
