Step 2 – Get Evaluated

If it seems like a good fit or if you have some further questions, then you should take the next step and get evaluated.

Step 3 – Speak to an International Tax Attorney

Once you have been evaluated, it is time to get in contact with an international tax attorney in your home country about registering the right type of structure to satisfy all regulations and tax treaty obligations.

This is a very important step that ensures you can legally benefit by registering a Barbados offshore company and it must be done correctly. Therefore, it is essential that you speak to an international tax attorney who has experience in this area and has successfully set up similar companies.

The Advisor has contacts with international attorneys and can make recommendations as needed.

Step 4 – Register in Barbados

Once you have put the correct structure in place in your home country, you can register an offshore business in Barbados. This process is a relatively straightforward one. It is recommended that a Barbadian offshore attorney handle the registration on your behalf to ensure that all paperwork is filed correctly and that nothing is overlooked. The cost of having this done by an attorney is very reasonable.

The Advisor can recommend a leading local attorney to complete your company’s registration.

Step 5 – Running Your Business

Once your company structure is established in your home country and in Barbados, you are ready to get your business up and running. One of the major offshore qualification requirements indicates that “mind and management” must be located on the island.

Management and staff for the Barbadian company will be needed, as well as office space, furniture and computer equipment. If your operation will be a large one requiring many staff members, then it is worth having a local human resource consulting company find the right management and staff for your needs. Alternatively, you can send some of your current management and staff to the island to run the operation as necessary.

If your operation is smaller, requiring only part-time accounting and management services, then an offshore management service provider is the best solution for your company. This is an attractive option that combines management skills and international business experience with tightly controlled costs. A service provider fulfills all business functions including sales processing, vendor payments, payroll, banking, accounting and bookkeeping while providing financial reports to keep owners up-to-date on the operation. A provider will also work with the company’s auditors and attorneys to complete and file all annual paperwork and pay corporation taxes, keeping the company in good standing.
