This can be especially helpful for foreign business owners unfamiliar with the jurisdiction's specific regulations.Nominee services can streamline company formation and ongoing administrative tasks, particularly if the beneficial owners are located outside the Marshall Islands.It's important to note that while nominee arrangements offer privacy, Marshall Islands law requires following Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations. This means nominee service providers must conduct thorough due diligence on beneficial owners to prevent their services from being misused for illegal activities.

Are nominee arrangements disclosed to authorities in the Marshall Islands?

Although nominee directors and shareholders appear on public records, the identities of the beneficial owners are not typically disclosed. However, nominee service providers are required to maintain a register of beneficial ownership information.

No, nominee directors and shareholders do not have any actual control over the company's assets or operations. They serve in a fiduciary capacity, acting according to the instructions provided by the beneficial owners.

To clarify again, nominees cannot act as ultimate beneficial owners (UBOs) and Vepapu does not offer such arrangements.
