We are also experienced in the legalization of corporate documentation (including Arabic translations) for our clients doing business in the Middle East.

Reduced withholding on dividends for foreigners trading on the US Stock Exchanges. 4 to 8 day incorporation and audited accounts as above.
Note: Some websites state that tax free offshore Companies are not available in Cyprus since it joined the EU. This is totally incorrect. A tax free Cyprus company is still available if structured correctly. Unfortunately, many websites purporting to provide offshore services are full of errors, as the companies have little or no knowledge of the various jurisdictions and their regulations.

Note: The incorporation times indicated in the above table are based on the delivery of all client and KYC documents and do not include courier time or document processing time.

In addition to new incorporations in the countries listed above, Maritime International Limited also offers a variety of ready made offshore shelf companies in a number of these jurisditions.


When you set up your offshore company you may name a Director of your choice or you may wish to appoint a professional "nominee" or "third party" Director. The "nominee" or "third party" Director is usually a company specifically set up by us for this purpose, while you still maintain control of the company. Maritime International Limited offers a Nominee Director at no additional cost. If you are unfamiliar with the advantages and benefits of using a Nominee Director for your offshore corporate structure, please visit our Offshore Company FAQs.
