Our Company Redomiciliation Services
Migrating a company from one jurisdiction to another is not a standardised process. Corporate entities seeking to transfer from one jurisdiction to another will be subject to differing requirements driven by the exporting and receiving jurisdictions in the process. Our global team is experienced in working with clients and their professional advisors to determine if redomicilation is possible and what the requirements, timings and costs of the process will be. Our extensive range of corporate domiciles means we are able to assist clients seamlessly across both ends of the process.
Our team in the exporting jurisdiction assists with the necessary steps to commence the process of transferring the company to another jurisdiction. Typically this will include: a resolution of the shareholders to transfer the registered office of the company; confirming that the constitutional documents of the company permit redomiciliation; obtaining consent from the corporate registry to migrate the company to another jurisdiction; payment of any necessary government fees.
Our team in the receiving jurisdiction assists with all aspects of establishing the company in its new home jurisdiction. Typically this will include: making the application to the companies registry for consent for a company to be continued into the jurisdiction; collation and submission of the wide range of required supporting documents; obtaining the certificate of continuation; providing the new registered office and attending to any statutory filings, and opening a new bank account if required; and subsequently handling the ongoing administration of the company.
