General Info about Vanuatu

Vanuatu, located 1,500 miles north-east of Australia, became independent in 1980.  Vanuatu has a political and legal system that closely follows the UK being a parliamentary democracy based on the Westminster system, and the law is based on English law. 

The official languages are French and English, and the currency is the Vatu.

The 80 small islands that make up Vanuatu are administered from Port Vila, and are connected to the outside world by excellent telecommunications and flights to major cities in Australia and New Zealand.

The International Companies Act passed in December 1992 provides for the incorporation of the International Company (IC) which is preferred over the exempt company. ICs do not have the concept of authorised capital.


TAXATION: ICs pay no taxes in Vanuatu.  Upon incorporation ICs are exempt from  taxes for 20 years.

SHAREHOLDERS: A minimum of one shareholder is required. Details of the shareholders do not appear on the public file.

DIRECTORS: A minimum of one director is required and corporate directors are permitted. There is no requirement to file the details of directors on any public record.

ANNUAL REPORTING: No annual return or accounts need be filed.  The company does not have to hold annual general meetings.  If the company fails to pay the Government tax on or before 30 June of each year, the tax will be increased by 10% every month that it remains unpaid up to 50%.

TIMESCALE: Incorporation can be achieved within 24 hours however, it does take approximately 1 week for documents to arrive from Vanuatu.

RESTRICTIONS ON NAME AND ACTIVITY: Names must end with one of the following words, or abbreviations   thereof - Limited, Corporation, Incorporation, Sendirian Berhad, Besloten Vennootschap, Gesellschaft mit beschrankter Haftung. Names will not be allowed that in are, the opinion of the Registrar, likely to mislead or deceive, or suggest a connection with the Government of Vanuatu.

LOCAL REQUIREMENTS : As a matter of local company law the company MUST maintain a registered office address within Vanuatu and must also appoint a Vanuatu resident as registered agent.  We would generally provide these services as part of the domiciliary service fee.

SECRECY: The International Companies Act makes it a criminal offence for any person to divulge information concerning an IC.
