Fast & easy company registration service in Isle of Man

There are a number of reasons registering a new business entity in the Isle of Man can make sense. By choosing a respected company registration agent with a growing client base such as ourselves, you will give yourself the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have dotted the Is and crossed the Ts.

One piece of legislation that we know inside out as a result of our extensive work with registering companies in the Isle of Man is the 1931 act concerning company formation. At Coddan, we pride ourselves on possessing a comprehensive knowledge of this type of legislation, but you might wish to develop a basic understanding.

All IOM companies which are incorporated under the Companies Act 1931 are either public companies or private companies. A public limited company, or PLC, may sell its share to holders, and must deliver audited accounts to the Companies Registry annually. A private company is not permitted to offer shares unless it is a subsidiary of an Isle of Man PLC, and is not obliged to send audited accounts to the Companies Registry.

For those wishing to register a company in the Isle of Man, the act requires that the company name is approved first by the Companies Registry. Then a number of documents, among them the articles of association, and an initial information form, must be returned. This is something we can complete on your behalf as part of the service we provide here at Coddan.

Start-Up a Company in IOM

If you're looking to register a company in the Isle of Man in accordance with the 1931 Companies Act, it's important to be aware of some of the legal requirements of this act. Thankfully, here at Coddan, we're vastly experienced with company formation in the United Kingdom and around the globe.

The 1931 Act stipulates that a company in the Isle of Man can be either a public or private company; in accordance with the act, this means that both of these types of companies operate in very different ways.

A PLC, or public limited company, can for example offer shares and debentures to the public for sale. A public limited company operating in this manner must be explicitly stated as such to operate in accordance with the 1931 Act; the company must also adhere to further legal requirements, such as submitting fully regulated and audited accounts to the Isle of Man Companies Registry. This must occur annually to not breach the 1931 Act.

In contrast, a private limited company formed in the Isle of Man may have no such requirement to submit an audited overview of the company's accounts on an annual basis. But this is not always the case - for example, if the private company was in some way connected to a public limited company. Also, a private company in accordance with the 1931 Act must not offer public shares.

To register a company properly in line with the 1931 Companies Act, Coddan can help. We have a variety of ways to help you do this quickly, legally and safely, so do not hesitate to contact us today - we look forward to hearing from you.
