Our company secretarial and directorship services provide a complete substance solution to your business.

Navigate an ever-changing regulatory landscape

Creating and maintaining entities across jurisdictions can be costly, complex and resource intensive.

As a global service provider with local offices in key jurisdictions, we can provide a lower cost, lower risk alternative. 

We offer a comprehensive substance solution to the international entities of both public and private companies.

Our service includes the provision of directors, domiciliation, board support and a full range of administrative and company secretarial services.

We forge close relationships with local regulators, so we understand exactly what best practice is for a compliant business. In this way we can provide proactive, efficient and low risk international entity management for your organisation.

  • Create and maintain compliant corporate entities

    With the guidance of our highly experienced local teams, and the provision of our comprehensive substance solutions, we help businesses minimise the risks of setting up and maintaining international entities.

  • Make better local decisions

    Our in-country teams maintain a detailed understanding of local regulations. Our highly experienced local directors ensure you have the right information available to make the best decisions for your business.

  • Control your costs

    Employing your own local director, obtaining an office address and ensuring you attend to local corporate administration can be a high-cost, high-risk approach to international entity management. As a local administrator, we provide a cost-efficient service.

  • Navigate regulatory complexity

    As global regulations regarding tax residency and substance requirements continue to evolve, utilising the insight and expertise of our local, in-country teams ensures swift and proactive adherence to local and international policies.

  • Make better use of your time

    Ensuring oversight of your international entities and keeping abreast of upcoming regulatory changes can take up extraordinary amounts of time. We can ensure your entities will remain compliant, leaving you to focus on other important areas of your business.
