Sovereign’s core business is setting up and managing companies, trusts and other structures to meet the specific personal or business needs of our clients. Typically these needs would include tax planning, wealth protection, foreign property ownership and facilitating cross-border business.
We currently manage over 7,000 structures for a wide variety of clients worldwide. We advise governments, publicly quoted companies and professional law and accountancy firms but the majority of our clients are individuals, expatriates, entrepreneurs, freelance consultants, private investors, or wealthy persons and their families.
We have also developed a wide range of supporting services embracing asset management, corporate finance and fund raising, tax compliance, ship and yacht registration, credit cards, as well as trade mark and intellectual property registration and protection.
The first Sovereign office opened in Gibraltar in 1987 and we now have offices or agents in all the major international finance centres. Not all the jurisdictions in which we operate require or allow licences but wherever possible we have applied for, and been granted, the appropriate authorisation.
WHERE TO INCORPORATE
Sovereign not only equips its clients with the knowledge and understanding of new countries that is essential to successful market entry and growth initiatives, it also provides the legal structures, administrative support and fiscal arrangements to maximise those opportunities and achieve long-term sustainability.
Global Business Set-up Services – Our core discipline is setting up and managing companies, trusts, partnerships and other structures to meet the specific needs of our clients, wherever they are required, to facilitate foreign market entry or cross border business. Sovereign Group can incorporate legal structures in most jurisdictions, both offshore and onshore, on a worldwide basis.
Holistic Business Services – It is relatively straight forward to set up or purchase a company but it is vital to get proper advice on how to structure the ownership of that company, how it should be administered and how to organise its commercial arrangements. Every case is different and a high level of expertise is required to ensure that the advice is up-to-date, effective and fully compliant.
After incorporation, a company will be required to maintain a minimum presence in the jurisdiction of incorporation. A legal registered office will always be a necessity and all companies are also required to have a resident company secretary and/or a resident agent. These services are known as “domiciliary services and we generally provide them for all our clients.
Sovereign will also assist with bank introductions and can either provide in-house accounting services or can recommend suitable external accountancy firms in all the jurisdictions in which we operate.
