Structure and Registration Procedures of Offshore Companies

Is it a requirement for an IBC to set up a fully operational office in the Seychelles?

No. The only mandatory legal requirement is to have a "minimum local presence" in the country. This means having a Registered Office and a Registered Agent in the Seychelles. This service is usually provided by us, as a licensed Registered Agent, for all International Business Companies we register and maintain for our clients. If Your business circumstances so require, several optional services are available for Your offshore company - such as mail and fax forwarding, document re-mailing and telephone call handling. These services will provide a more "bricks and mortar" look to Your IBC. However, by definition, an IBC is not supposed to operate locally, with the exception of entering into business transactions with other IBC`s.
