Company registration in Liberia

Liberia is located in Western Africa. Recently, this jurisdiction has become more popular among foreign entrepreneurs. Liberia is a member of all international organizations, in particular the UN, WHO and IMF. Foreign investors see the country as a place to build a successful company respected in international markets.

Among the benefits of incorporating a business in Liberia are the following:

  • if the company makes a profit from foreign sources and does not own local real estate, it does not pay tax fees, including those assigned for capital gains. This makes Liberia look like a classic offshore;
  • there are no requirements for mandatory disclosure of information regarding assets and beneficiaries. In this jurisdiction there is no public register in which the data of directors and shareholders of the company would be entered;
  • there is no need to register annual accounts;
  • no currency control, no stamp duty;
  • owners and directors are not limited in citizenship and residence. Other firms and individual entrepreneurs are allowed to manage the enterprise;
  • the use of nominee services is allowed;
  • it is possible to organize meetings of the company’s shareholders in any country;
  • the company is allowed to issue shares with no par value.

These are the main advantages of Liberian jurisdiction.
