Advantages of Anguilla company registration

- Up to 100% foreign corporate ownership is permitted. A minimum of one shareholder and one director is required for Anguilla companies, but they need not be residents in Anguilla. Corporate shareholders and directors are permitted. Following registration, shareholders and directors details are not available on a public register;

- It is easy to open global corporate bank accounts to support the Anguilla company. Healy Consultants works with internationally recognised banks such as HSBC, Standard Chartered, and Citibank to provide corporate bank account services;
- An Anguilla company can perform all business activities under one commercial license through a doctrine of “ultra vires.”;
- Anguilla is a lesser known UK territory with a highly regulated financial services industry. Consequently, fees, services and real estate are cheaper than compared to Isle of Man or BVI. Financial services companies based in Anguilla benefit from the island’s reputation, British company law, and being in the same time zone as New York markets.
Disadvantages of Anguilla company registration
- The lack of public registers makes proof of ownership challenging. Anguilla entity is therefore not recommended for high profile trading operations;

- Anguilla companies might be deemed to be of low credibility due to the nation’s reputation as a tax haven.
