Business Incorporation in Cayman Islands
The type of company you choose to incorporate will largely depend on your needs.
General Partnerships – This structure is suitable for foreign investors who do not reside in the Cayman Islands and will have limited partnership rights. This option will limit the owner from participating in business management. The share in profits and withdrawal of capital is also restricted.
Exempted Partnerships – This structure has been available since 2014 after the Cayman Islands Exempted Limited Partnership Law was passed. It allows greater flexibility in management, share of profits, and capital withdrawal following incorporation of a limited partnership.
Limited Liability Company – This is one of the fastest and more streamlined types of company structure in Cayman Islands. An LLC protects the foreign owner from incurring liabilities and enables them to distribute profits via dividends and transfer ownership by the issuance and sale of shares.
Overseas Branches – A company can establish an overseas office/branch in Cayman Islands by setting up an office, engaging in business in the Cayman Islands, or owning real estate in the territory. A company in this case will register as a foreign company and may be subject to local licensing.
Investment Firms – Cayman Islands offers attractive investment opportunities to hedge funds and investment firms, and is currently the largest centre for investment funds in the world. Such a company can choose to operate as open-ended fund or close ended fund.
Free Zone Company – The Cayman Enterprise City and Cayman Islands Special Economic Zone (SEZ) enable 100% foreign ownership with 0% corporate, sales, income, and capital tax. A give year residence visa or work permit can be acquired in just 5 days and typically no government reporting is required.
