Samoa

Samoa is an island country in the Pacific, located near Australia and New Zealand, consisting of two large and seven smaller islands. Formerly known as Western Samoa, the former colony became independent from New Zealand in 1962. The capital city is Apia and the population is about 200,000 people living on an area of about 2,800 km2.

Samoa has a high quality jurisdiction with many advantages and growing significance, especially for its location near China, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Indonesia. Its offshore services are built on the best fundaments taken from the British Virgin Islands, enriched by specialties such as registration of a company with a license for more than one year, which makes Samoa unique. A licence can be prepaid for 5, 10 and 20 years, which can significantly reduce the cost of offshore business, making Samoa an absolutely unbeatable jurisdiction in terms of costs in the case of multi-year programmes! The advantage is also the smaller number of registered companies resulting in a greater amount of available names of companies. Another advantage is that for € 100 surcharge corporate documents can be issued, in addition to English, also in Chinese and the name of the company translated to Chinese. Compared to other offshore jurisdictions Samoa offers setting up a company with a high equity capital – up to $ 1,000,000.
