What additional services does Offshore Seychelles offer?

Seychelles company documents

Due to our links with the Seychelles Financial Services Authority (FSA) and because we are on site in the Seychelles, we have the ability to request all information and copies of documents of IBC companies incorporated in the Seychelles directly from the FSA and provide notarised copies of company documents as legalised company certificates.
In addition, we offer the possibility to provide all documents with a Hague Apostille by the Supreme Court of the Seychelles, so that all documents are guaranteed to be recognised worldwide according to the Hague Convention by any authority or bank.

All documents will be prepared by the Seychelles Financial Services Authority and sent to you by email within 2 - 5 days. Optionally, we can also arrange shipment via DHL Express Courier for you.

We can request the following documents for you via the FSA:

Company Records

A company in Seychelles must file its Memorandum and Articles of Association together with any amendments. Company records are kept by the company at its registered office in Seychelles. Books and records must be kept for all companies, but these do not have to be filed with the Seychelles Registry and are kept confidential. The Register need only be notified of the address where the company's records are kept.

A register of directors for Seychelles companies must be filed with the Seychelles Register of International Business Companies in accordance with the requirements of IBC Act 2016, but this is kept private. The register of directors is therefore not open to the public.

Seychelles Clearance certificate and Seychelles quality mark

Offshore Seychelles can provide a Certificate of Good Standing for any Seychelles company (IBC)

Seychelles documents with an apostille

The apostille is a certificate attached to the company document that confirms the authenticity of the signature and the stamp of the register. In the Seychelles, company documents are legalised with it and receive the apostille stamp from the authorised representative of the Supreme Court of Seychelles.

Copies of apostilled company documents that we obtain for you are from the Seychelles Financial Services Authority:

  • Certificate of incorporation
  • Memorandum and Articles of Association / Statutes
  • Certificates of good standing
  • Extract from the company search
  • An apostille certifies the documentation and allows the speaker to bypass another certification and use the documents immediately in the intended country.
