Very quick and friendly service. I’m pleased that communication takes place in hours, not days. The first time the company was founded, there was a lot of confusion, but I always got the information I needed. If there were some difficulties, they quickly resolved the problem and the necessary documents were received. Thank you.

Why is Gibraltar a suitable place to register an offshore company?

Gibraltar, as a place to register an offshore company, is attractive because:

  • In terms of the number of registered tax-free companies, Gibraltar has long been one of the leading companies in Europe.
  • Compared to other jurisdictions, Gibraltar is a European territory and is not far from an exotic island.
  • Gibraltar is, in fact, the only territory in Europe where tax-free companies can be included.
  • Since Gibraltar is the main source of income from non-residents, the financial sector and tourism, the municipality of Gibraltar evaluates these industries and seeks to maintain favorable conditions for their representatives.

Useful facts about Gibraltar:

Gibraltar is a jurisdiction located on a small peninsula in southern Spain, but it belongs to the United Kingdom. The official head of the area is the Queen of the United Kingdom, represented by the Governor-General of Gibraltar. Although the defense system and foreign policy are led by the United Kingdom, Gibraltar is a local government with its own constitution.

Gibraltar is a strategically important place because the Strait of Gibraltar connects the Mediterranean Sea with the Atlantic Ocean. It is a place that separates Europe from Africa. Although Gibraltar is a very small city, mostly covered with rocks, it is a very popular place for tourism and business.
