Application of Limited Company


A Limited company conducts business for which it was formed. This can be done

- directly ,

- through a local branch.


The company holds rights of possession and can advance these to another company. Importantly, assets are not involved in the business plan, reducing risk.


A Limited company can be a shareholder in a subsidiary company in your country. The structure facilitates easy share transfers, simplifying partner changes in your home company.


Who can benefit?

Specifically beneficial for customers setting up business in countries covered by Double taxation treaties, a British Limited company is advantageous.

Double taxation is the levying of tax by two or more jurisdictions on the same declared income (in the case of income taxes), asset (in the case of capital taxes), or financial transaction (in the case of sales taxes). This double liability is often mitigated by tax treaties between countries.
