-Registered Office (NOT sufficient for an “ordinary place of business,” see Head Office below; a Head Office is generally a co-requirement): EUR 190.00 for the first year, GBP 84 per year thereafter.

-Apostille set, notarized certifications: Company statutes in English, notarized by the Companies House; company statutes in the language of the client’s home country, translated and notarized by a sworn translator approved by the UK courts; commercial register entry, notarized by the Companies House and apostilled by the UK Foreign Office: EUR 990.00 (required only if a subsidiary location or non-independent branch location registered with the trade authorities is to be established outside the UK, not for representation. Is also required for opening bank accounts outside the UK).

-Maintenance of your company statutory books (all communication with the British tax authorities and HMRC/Companies House via fax, telephone, e-mail, creation of Annual Return, deadline check with HMRC and Companies House, NO bookkeeping/year-end accounts): EUR 400.00 for the first year, GBP 120 per year thereafter.

-Appointment of a Company Secretary: EUR 290.00 per year

-Nominee director, legal entity: No “formation director” or director in “Belize” (beware of cheap offers!), British tax advisory and law office appointed as director of the company, accessible and reachable throughout the term of the agreement (unfortunately this is not always the case), nomineeship agreement between the nominator and nominee. EUR 700.00 for the first year, plus EUR 400 administration fee.

Note: In accordance with UK law, legal violations may lead to restriction of access for the director. For this reason, agreements to be signed by the nominee director must undergo prior legal review. Our UK tax advisors/attorneys charge between EUR 70 and EUR 150 per agreement that they are asked to sign in their capacity as nominee director. Independently thereof, the nominator (client) holds general power of attorney and thus has the ability to sign contracts independently (“on behalf of”), in which case no costs are incurred.

Warning: As of October 2008, legal entities are NO LONGER allowed to act as directors of UK Limited companies, only natural persons.

-Nominee director, natural person: No “formation director” or director in “Belize” (beware of cheap offers!), an employee of the British tax advisory and law office is appointed as director of the company, accessible and reachable throughout the term of the agreement (unfortunately this is not always the case), nomineeship agreement between the nominator and nominee. EUR 1,500.00 per year for the first year plus EUR 500.00 administration fee (due to the high liability risk, this service is subject to certain requirements, please inquire!)

Note: In accordance with UK law, legal violations may lead to restriction of access for the director. For this reason, agreements to be signed by the nominee director must undergo prior legal review. Our UK tax advisors/attorneys charge between EUR 70 and EUR 150 per agreement that they are asked to sign in their capacity as nominee director. Independently thereof, the nominator (client) holds general power of attorney and thus has the ability to sign contracts independently (“on behalf of”), in which case no costs are incurred.

-Permanent director:  An employee of the British-based office acts as director of the UK limited company, with a General Manager’s contract plus wage and social security benefits. Fees depend on expenses and income of the Ltd, between EUR 600 and EUR 1500 per month.

-Client becomes second director: Founder/client/beneficiary becomes a second director of the limited company with joint signing authority (both signatures required): One-time fee of EUR 490.00

-Nominee shareholder: English tax advisory and law office acts as nominee shareholder of the limited company (X - 100% shareholder): No formation shareholder or shareholder in Belize (beware of cheap formation offers!): EUR 980.00 for the first year, plus EUR 400 administration fee.

-London Head Office, Version 1: A Registered Office does NOT sufficiently constitute an ordinary place of business in the UK (could be viewed as a dummy corporation and/or the UK financial authorities may deny VAT registration). In Version 1, the UK Ltd receives its own phone and fax number with voicemail; incoming phone calls are forwarded to you via e-mail as sound file attachments; otherwise, a deliverable postal address is provided and mail is forwarded on to you. This prevents suspicion of a dummy corporation in connection with your nominee director's "real office" (this is crucial): EUR 690.00 for the first year, thereafter EUR 260.00 per year plus mail forwarding fees (EUR 50.00 deposit required)

-London Head Office, Version 2: A Registered Office does NOT sufficiently constitute an ordinary place of business in the UK (could be viewed as a dummy corporation and/or the UK financial authorities may deny VAT registration). Version 2: Deliverable postal address in the US, mail forwarding, your own telephone number with personal answer service in the name of the company, fax, call forwarding to your phone available, company nameplate. Lease agreement between the landlord and the Ltd. Offered by our British-based tax advisory office at the office site, i.e. at the nominee director’s place of management. Temporary use of office and conference spaces for an additional fee optional. You will be notified of incoming phone calls via e-mail, fax or SMS. Fees: EUR 250.00 per month (payable 6 months in advance), one time setup fee of EUR 600.00. Call forwarding: plus any incurred call charges from British Telecom.

-London Head Office, Version 3: A Registered Office does NOT sufficiently constitute an ordinary place of business in the UK (could be viewed as a dummy corporation and/or the UK financial authorities may deny VAT registration). Telephone answering with company name, company address in London, company nameplate, mail forwarding, temporary rental of fully equipped office and conference rooms: http://www.eoffice.co.uk/services/virtualofficepremium.htm or www.regus.com. We will put you in touch with the provider, agreement signed between your Ltd and the Business Center.

-VAT registration/Sales tax ID number: GBP 249.00 Payable directly to the tax advisory firm in London, not included in the package. Within the scope of intra-Community deliveries and services, the VAT-registered UK Ltd issues invoices excluding VAT, as long as the service recipient is located outside the UK and also holds a VAT ID (6th EU Directive, reversal of turnover tax liability, service recipient pays VAT). VAT registration required for sales higher than GBP 60,000 per year.

-New bank account setup in the UK: New bank account including Visa card and online banking, Beneficiary has sole transaction authority: One-time fee of EUR 790.00

-New bank account setup in Austria (including online banking, Visa and debit card): One-time fee of EUR 900.00 The apostille set is required for this service. No travel to Austria is required. Austria offers a very high level of banking secrecy as guaranteed by its constitution; no information is disclosed except in serious criminal cases.

-Registration of a non-independent branch location (available in Germany, Denmark, France, Italy and Spain): The UK Ltd and permanent UK establishment must apply for registration and NOT the client. (beware of cheap providers!). Considerable administrative expenses are therefore incurred. The apostille set is required for this service: One-time fee of EUR 700.00

One-time fee amounts are calculated in advance and are understood to be net plus VAT if applicable. Partial payments (50% in advance, 50% after receipt of formation documentation by fax) incur a 5% fee. If taking over an existing Ltd, the fee must always be paid in full and in advance.

Annual fees (as of the first year) are considered deductible expenses and therefore reduce your taxable income. The same applies to costs for tax advisory services and year-end accounts. Foundation fees can be billed as "Tax and legal advisory services" to your German-based company, for example, and are equally deductible.

 -Cyprus Ltd: Services and fees

Our formation service package includes:

  • Please be advised that our formation packages include bookkeeping and year-end accounts, tax ID number and VAT ID, as well as Annual Return and VAT return preparation! This saves you considerable fees for a Cypriot tax adviser (your own participation is of course required in the presorting of invoices, cash account books, account statements, etc.) Our formation packages also include: New bank account setup in Cyprus and delivery service for mail/invoices!
  • Formation/advice from tax advisers and attorneys
  • No “formation director” or “formation shareholder.” Rather, a Cypriot national will be the registered and accessible director of the firm for the entire duration of the agreement. Appointment of nominees via a Cypriot advisory firm, no phony figureheads.
  • No so-called “Assistance with opening a bank account” in Cyprus (which usually results in no account actually being opened); instead, you can count on a guaranteed new, open account including Visa card and online banking. No travel to Cyprus is required.
  • While in Cyprus: Accessibility and customer care in English and German.
  • Deliverable postal address, including for certified mail, no mailboxes

Capital stock: We recommend an authorized capital amount of CYP£ 1,000, or a higher amount if you desire. The transactions of the firm are not limited to the amount of the company’s authorized capital. The minimum amount of authorized capital stock for registration as an Ltd equals CYP£ 1,000. Should the company open an office in Cyprus (establishment of a commercial business operation), the minimum amount is CYP£ 10,000. Please be advised that this amount does NOT have to be restricted to Cyprus.
