Starting a company is about a lot more than having a good idea or service. There is so much that goes into the construction of a company that it is far too much for one person to handle. It is not the same as running a business on your own.

Setting up a company takes a lot of work and requires getting it done right. That is why it is important to have professional help along the way. When you start your company off on the right foot, you set the path for success.

Company Formations

There are businesses out there that handle company formations in Vanuatu. But the key is finding the right one for the task. That means having the experience necessary to ensure that the process moves along as smoothly as possible.

There are a lot of things to cover in company formations. There is a lot of paperwork necessary as well to ensure that the company has been properly registered. Working with the right formation consultant can mean being completed within as few as 48 hours so long as the requisite information is received and submitted.

All of which means getting your company off the ground sooner rather than later. Even better, it means getting your company off the ground the right way.


Companies are allowed to do business not only within, but outside of Vanuatu. When the proper information has been submitted and all the applications are lodged through the Vanuatu Financial Services Commission (VFSC), you will be ready to go.

A local company only requires a single shareholder and they can either be a resident or nonresident. It also requires a natural person who will act as director. Although all of this information is publicly available, there is a lot more to it than that.

Working with the right company can mean providing the service of nominating shareholders, executing Declarations of Trust, and even setting up a Trust that can act as the beneficial owner for your new company.

These are all things that can seem confusing if you don’t know what to expect. But having a professional on your side can make the entire process seamless and get your company started off on the right foot. Set your business up for success but ensure that it is incorporated the right way.
