Introduction
Located in the Eastern Caribbean region, the British Virgin Islands are an English speaking Dependent Territory of the United Kingdom. The Islands are politically stable and possess a well-developed commercial and professional infrastructure. Since the introduction of the International Business Company in 1984, the Islands are now an eminent corporate domicile jurisdiction. There are now over 300,000 IBCs incorporated in the BVI, used for holding, trading and investments. The government has strengthened and enhanced legislation to prohibit the formation of offshore banks on the Island and has in return reduced money laundering activities greatly. As a result of its highly flexible and modern legislation BVI has become extremely popular in the offshore market.
The BVI Business Companies Act 2004 grants all BBCs in BVI complete exemption from tax. This includes exemption from capital gains tax and all forms of withholding tax. BBCs have minimal reporting requirements. The flexibility of this legislation enables fast and low cost incorporation.

Samoa Company Registration
Introduction
Samoa consists of two large islands and seven smaller ones and is situated in the South Pacific Ocean at latitude 13 deg. South, 172 deg West. The capital and commercial centre is Apia. The land area is about 2944 sq. km. and the population about 180,000. Samoa was the first Polynesian nation to gain its independence when it did so in 1962. The economy has tended to rely on development aid and remittances form expatriate Samoans but agriculture and financial services also make contributions.
The constitution of Samoa provides for a British style parliamentary system-which combines the traditional Samoan social structure and democratic voting. There is a forty-seven member Legislative Assembly which consists of forty five Matai title holders (the heads of each extended family), who are elected by their peers and two non-Samoan residents who are registered on the Universal Voters' Roll. Elections are held every three years.
The financial services industry dates from 1987 with the passing of the Samoa International Companies Act and the Samoa International Trusts Act. The Trustee Companies Act of the same year required any business engaged in the formation and management of companies and trusts to apply for and obtain a license. Similar legislation was introduced to cover banking, insurance and partnerships. An anti money laundering law was enacted in 2000.
The company used for international trade and investment purposes is the Samoan exempt company incorporated under the International Companies Act. An international exempt company has all the powers of a natural person but it may not trade in Samoa or own real estate there. There are no residence qualifications for directors or Secretary. Beneficial ownership is not disclosed.

UK Company Registration
Introduction
The United Kingdom comprises of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It is one of the fifteen member states of the European Union. It is regarded as one of the worlds great trading powers and leading financial centre, lying between Tokyo and New York. Whilst no longer a tax haven in the true sense of the word, the UK enjoys lower corporation tax rates in comparison to other EU countries. The UK is also party to more double tax treaties than any other sovereign state therefore a UK company can form an important taxplanning tool.
Companies Act 1985 (amended) provides for the Incorporation of a Limited Liability Company. This type of company limits members liability to the amount unpaid on shares they hold. The company is a legal person in its own right. It is separate from those who run it and has limited liability. Limited Liability gives the owners of the company (its shareholders) protection if the company fails. A very popular type of company due to its Common Law base and relative cheapness to incorporate.
