FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to frequently asked questions on company formation in the Cayman Islands

General

Does my information be displayed publicly by the Cayman government?

There is no public directory in the Cayman Islands. Directors' and shareholders' details will not be made public, but they will be available to certain regulatory authorities.

It is important to note that Cayman Islands companies are required to disclose certain information about their directors and shareholders to the registrar. To ensure that all information about company directors, officers, and shareholders is correct and up-to-date, the company must keep a register of directors and shareholders and file an annual return with the Registrar.

Are there any taxes in the Cayman Islands? Do I have to pay any taxes under my offshore company in the Cayman Islands?

No need to worry about taxes for your Cayman Exempted Company. You won't have to pay income, capital gains, or withholding taxes. And good news for shareholders too: they won't face estate or inheritance taxes on their shares or dividends. It's a tax-friendly setup that lets you focus on your offshore business.

What are the different company types or structures available in the Cayman Islands?

Below are the different forms of companies in the Cayman Islands:
1. Exempted Company;
2. Limited Liability Company (L.L.C.);
3. Resident Company;
etc.

Our experts have created a detailed content on this topic and you can find the blogpost and YouTube video for your reference.

Management

Are there accounting and auditing requirements for Cayman Islands companies?

Companies are not required to provide financial documents when filing annual returns; hence, there is no need to do accounting and/or bookkeeping. Companies are not required to provide financial documents when filing annual returns.

If you want to have an accurate financial picture of your company, you can opt for an accounting and bookkeeping plan from Vepapu. This makes your journey very simple, transparent, and data-driven.

Are there any annual filing or return submission requirements in the Cayman Islands?

Every year, your company needs to pay a fee (which depends on the authorized share capital of the company) to the government. This is to keep your company's records up-to-date and legal. You also have to send a report to the registrar, which is like the official keeper of records. In this report, you say that no changes, other than ones already notified to the Registrar, have been made to the Memorandum of Association, and no business has been carried out within the country. This keeps everything transparent and in line with the rules.

We make sure that you don't miss these steps, so your business can run smoothly without any issues. We will inform you of these encounters at least 2 months in advance, which gives you flexibility to take actions easily on the Vepapu dashboard.

What ongoing compliance requirements do I need to fulfil for my Cayman offshore company?

First, you need to keep your local registered agent and registered address in place. This helps keep your company's official records accurate and accessible.

Also, you have to pay an annual fee. This fee is based on the authorised share capital of the company. This keeps your company compliant with the Cayman rules and regulations.

Are there any obligations to conduct the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in the Cayman Islands?

No, a Cayman Exempted Company isn't required to hold an annual general meeting (AGM) as per the Companies Law. But if the company's Articles of Association say it should or if most of the Board of Directors agree, then an AGM can happen. It's not a must, but it's possible if you want to have one.

How much does it cost to maintain a company in the Cayman Islands?

The maintenance costs include the following:
1. Annual fee (depends on the authorised share capital of the company); and
2. Registered Agent fee.

Directors

Does my company need local directors or shareholders?

No, there is no need to have local directors or shareholders to form your offshore company in the Cayman Islands. A company must have at least one director, but it can be yourself, irrespective of your country of citizenship, origin, or residence.

Optionally, you can use Vepapu's Nominee Director and/or Nominee Shareholder services to hide your identity in your company formation documents as well.

Can a foreigner or foreign company register a company in the Cayman Islands?

Foreigners can set up companies in the Cayman Islands, and 100% foreign ownership is not only allowed but encouraged by the government. Foreigners can easily set up a company as there are minimum requirements for setting up a company on the Cayman Islands, such as no residency requirements for directors.

What is the minimum number of directors or shareholders required to form a company in the Cayman Islands?

A minimum of one director and/or shareholder is required to form a company in the Cayman Islands. It can be a person or an entity.

Incorporation

How long will it take to incorporate a company in Cayman Islands?

Normally, it takes about 7 to 10 working days from when all the required documents are in place for your company's physical documents to be ready. But if you need things to move faster, we also offer an express option. With this, you can get your Cayman Islands company formed in just 48 hours. We're here to make sure your company's journey is as smooth and speedy as possible.

What documents are required to form a company in the Cayman Islands?

1. Notarized / Certified true copies of valid passports for all directors and shareholders; and
2. Notarized / certified true copies of residency proofs for all company directors and shareholders (i.e., utility bill or credit card bill).

These are the general documents needed for your Cayman Islands offshore company formation.

How much does it cost to form a company in the Cayman Islands?

The government fee for setting up a Cayman Exempted Company is dependent on the authorised share capital of the company. For example, a company with an authorised share capital of up to KYD 42,000 must pay KYD 600 (US$732) to register.

While completing the company formation procedure with Vepapu, you can go through our transparent pricing before you commit anything. There will be no additional or hidden costs associated with forming your company in the Cayman Islands while working with Vepapu.

How do I name an exempted company or LLC in the Cayman Islands?

Naming an exempted company in the Cayman Islands follows certain rules. The name can't have words like "royal," "imperial," "empire," "municipal," "chartered," "co-operative," "insurance," "bank," "assurance," "gaming," "lottery,” and others without special permission from the Registrar. Also, it can't be the same as any existing company. And here's the cool part: your company name doesn't have to end with "Limited" or "Ltd."

We've got you covered - we offer unlimited name checks with the Cayman registrar. So, if your preferred name is available, you're all set.

What is the minimum minimum registered capital or authorized share capital in the Cayman Islands?

There's no required minimum registered capital for your Cayman company. Typically, the authorised capital is set at US$50,000.

Do I need to obtain any business licenses in the Cayman Islands?

Yes, there are certain business activities in the Cayman Islands that need a license from the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA). These activities include things like banking, money services, insurance, trust services, managing companies, running investment funds, and dealing with securities. If your business falls into any of these categories, you'll need a license to operate legally.
