A Notice of Registration of Directors should also accompany the application.

Some additional points to note:

  • Must have a Registered Agent in SVG.

  • Must adhere to economic substance requirements, where required
  • A BC may own land in SVG as long as it obtains an Alien Land Holding Licence.
  • May issue registered shares only. Bearer shares are not permitted.
  • May have only one director and one shareholder.
  • Must register directors and shareholders.
  • Shareholders, directors and officers may reside anywhere in the world and their meetings may be held wherever they decide. There is no residency or nationality requirement for shareholders, directors and/or officers of a SVG BC.
