FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to frequently asked questions on company formation in Samoa

General

Does my information be displayed publicly by the Samoan government?

No, Samoa maintains a high level of confidentiality for offshore companies. Information about the beneficiaries of the company will not be made public under any circumstances. No one can find your confidential information, thanks to the privacy policy framed by the regulators of Samoa.

If you want further safety, you can opt for a nominee director and nominee shareholder from Vepapu, where your details will not be shown to the registrar, anywhere, but you will still be the ultimate beneficiary for your company.

Are there any taxes in Samoa? Do I have to pay any taxes under my offshore company in Samoa?

Forming an offshore company in Samoa offers several tax benefits to international or foreign-owned businesses. Some of the key tax advantages include:

1. Income Tax Exemption: Offshore companies in Samoa are exempt from income taxes. This means that the company's profits and income generated from activities outside of Samoa are not subject to taxation within the jurisdiction.

2. Capital Gains Tax Exemption: Offshore companies are also exempt from capital gains tax. Any gains from the sale of assets or investments are not taxed in Samoa, as long as they are earned outside of the country.

3. Stamp Duty Exemption: Offshore companies are not subject to stamp duties. This includes transactions such as the transfer of property or documents related to business activities.

4. Dividends and Earnings Exemption: Dividends and earnings received by offshore companies from companies whose owners are not residents in Samoa are not taxed.

How can Vepapu help with forming and managing my offshore company in Samoa?

Vepapu simplifies the journey of forming and managing your offshore company in Samoa. Our all-inclusive platform and expert services cover every step. We offer registered agent services, local business addresses, nominee director and shareholder options, and even accounting plans. With Vepapu, you'll navigate compliance seamlessly and manage your company effortlessly through our user-friendly online dashboard. Change company details, alter share capital, and more with ease. Your offshore success story starts with Vepapu, and we will ensure your journey is smooth and hassle-free.

What are the different company types or structures available in Samoa?

Below are the different forms of companies in Samoa:
1. Company limited by shares, or
2. Company limited by guarantee, or
3. Company limited by both shares and guarantee.

Management

Are there accounting and auditing requirements for Samoa companies?

Samoa companies don't need to include financial documents in annual returns, meaning accounting and bookkeeping might not be necessary for that purpose. However, Samoan companies are obligated to maintain financial records reflecting their financial position.

Vepapu offers accounting and bookkeeping plans to simplify and enhance your Samoan offshore journey.

Are there any annual filing or return submission requirements in Samoa?

Every year, your company needs to pay a fee (which depends on the authorised share capital of the company) to the Samoan government. The renewal fee in Samoa must be paid before the incorporation anniversary. This is to keep your company's records up-to-date and legal. You also have to send a report to the registrar, who 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 Samoa offshore company?

First, you need to keep your local registered agent and registered address in place and maintain its corporate structure. 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 Samoan rules and regulations.

Are there any obligations to conduct the annual general meeting (AGM) in Samoa?

No, a Samoan 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 Samoa?

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 Samoa. 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 Samoa?

Foreigners can set up companies in Samoa, 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 in Samoa, such as no residency requirements for directors.

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

A minimum of one director and/or shareholder is required to form a company in Samoa. It can be a person or an entity originating from any part of the world.

Incorporation

How long will it take to incorporate a company in Samoa?

The incorporation process in Samoa is relatively efficient. It typically takes around 1 to 2 business days to complete the registration and receive the Certificate of Incorporation, thanks to the government's efforts in attracting businesses.

What documents are required to form a company in Samoa?

1. Notarized / Certified true copies of valid passports for all directors/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 Samoa offshore company's formation.

How much does it cost to form a company in Samoa?

The cost to incorporate a company in Samoa includes the government fee for your company's formation and the registered agent and address fee.

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 to name a company in Samoa?

To name an international company in Samoa, ensure that the name meets the following conditions:
1. The name should not be similar or identical to existing company names or names reserved on the registrar's list.
2. The name should not be misleading or deemed undesirable according to the registrar's judgment.
3. The name should include, at its end, words such as "corporation," "corp," "incorporated," "inc," "limited," "ltd," or similar terms in any language that indicate the entity's corporate nature.

Additionally, note that a company name can be reserved for a duration of up to three months in Samoa, allowing you time to secure the chosen name for from being used by others.

Are there restricted business activities for a Samoan company?

Yes, for an international company registered in Samoa, there are restrictions on certain business activities. Specifically, an international company is prohibited from engaging in the following activities:

1. Investing in Domestic Companies: The international company is not allowed to invest in or hold shares of domestic companies registered in Samoa.

2. Doing Business with Samoa Residents: The international company cannot conduct business activities or enter into transactions with residents of Samoa.

3. Settling Property with Domestic Companies: The international company is prohibited from transferring or settling property with domestic companies registered in Samoa.

What is the minimum registered capital or authorised share capital in Samoa?

There's no required minimum registered capital for your Samoan company. Typically, the authorised capital is set at US$50,000. The minimum issued capital is one share. It is important to note that the amount is only for registration, you do not have to pay it up to the government.
