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 the 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 Registry need only be notified of the address where the company's records are kept.

  • Extract from the company search
  • An apostille authenticates the documentation and allows the presenter to bypass further authentication and immediately use the documents in the intended country.
