Vanuatu International Companies are not subject to tax in Vanuatu but can become subject to tax in other jurisdictions if they carry on business there or if they set up a "permanent establishment" or the seat of management there. The principals of VRS have many decades of experience in such matters and can assist you and your tax advisers in structuring the most efficient lawful ways of minimising the company's exposure to tax.

In particular, if you become the ultimate beneficial owner of shares in a Vanuatu International Company (or any company), depending on your nationality and/or residence, you may have a personal duty to report that interest to your personal tax authority and, in certain circumstances, to pay tax on the company's profits even if you have not paid them out to yourself.

Again VRS's principals are well positioned to assist you in understanding and complying with such obligations and minimising the amount of tax you might otherwise incur.
