Nevis is an excellent jurisdiction in which to open a Limited Liability Company (LLC). The Nevis Limited Liability Company Ordinance was passed in 1995 and has become very popular.

The Offshore LLC is a corporate vehicle designed primarily for sole proprietors or business partnerships. A partner (member) of an LLC is not personally liable for the debts or liabilities of the LLC. Each member's liability is limited to the amount of capital that such member has contibuted to the LLC. A member's profit and remuneration is governed either by the member's ownership in the LLC or by unanimous agreement amongst the members of the LLC.

Management of the LLC is vested in the members of the LLC, in proportion to their ownership, or as otherwise agreed amongst the members. A member of the LLC may be appointed to manage the LLC or an outside Manager may be appointed. The members of the LLC may themselves draft and agree upon an Operating Agreement.

The operations of the LLC are governed by the Operating Agreement. The Operating Agreement is drafted by and agreed to by the members and it can be as simple or as comprehensive as they desire. Maritime International Limited can provide a typical Operating Agreement for the members or they can draft one themselves if they wish.

An Offshore corporation can be a member of an LLC.
