Incorporation There are several options for foreign investors looking to establish a business in the Bahamas.
A new company may be incorporated in The Bahamas, or an existing foreign company may be registered locally as a Foreign Company. There are two types of companies in The Bahamas: Domestic Company Companies formed under the Companies Act can be private companies limited by shares or by guarantee, or can be public companies.
A Memorandum and Articles of Association must be filed at the Companies Registry, there must be a minimum of two shareholders and two directors, and there must be a registered office in the Bahamas.
Domestic Companies are required to hold Annual General Meetings and they must file an Annual Statement listing the names of registered shareholders and incumbent directors. In the case where it is intended that a Domestic Company will be a wholly owned subsidiary of another entity, one share in the Domestic Company must be registered in the name of a nominee, who then executes a Declaration of Trust in favour of the Parent; and the remainder of the authorised shares are issued directly to the parent company.
They are primarily used for offshore entities conducting business offshore with no ties in the Bahamas. An IBC may have just one shareholder and one director; Annual General Meetings are not required, and there is no obligation to file an Annual Statement, although IBCs must at all times maintain a current filing of incumbent officers and directors.
This designation would in turn subject the IBC to regulation by Exchange Control and would therefore require the IBC to obtain permission to operate foreign currency accounts.
A Certificate of Registration is issued, and the company then has the same position as a Bahamian incorporated company. These Exchange Controls govern all foreign currency transactions between residents of The Bahamas and residents of foreign countries, referred to as non-residents, for the purpose of maintaining the foreign reserves.History.
