This package is the cheap and efficient way to begin business, as the registered company, and includes the provision of a registered office address in London, the cost of forwarding official post for the duration of one year, and the provision of a nominee shareholder for one year
Who is it for?
This is one the most popular package for the EU and international small & medium size businesses, who wish to appoint the nominee shareholder in order to hold the shares on behalf of the beneficiary owner.
There is a growing need of the resident and citizen of the United Kingdom, who has vital knowledge of UK's and international tax planning principles and the national laws. There are double taxes levied on the foreign owned companies as against the domestically registered ones. A company with the nominee shareholder will ensure that all legislative requirements are adhered to & takes care of the settlement of the annual fees, maintaining the registered office address in London, filling the confirmation statement and so on.
Can a nominee shareholder qualify as a person with significant control?
No. Nominee shareholders are generally appointed for record purposes only, and in most cases have little or no influence over the day to day running of the business. In this case the person who qualifies as a PSC will generally be the beneficiary or/and the person(s) who hold the general power of attorney.
