Oceania is a region that encompasses the island nations of the South and Central Pacific. New Zealand, New Guinea, Vanuatu, the Marshall Islands, Fiji, Samoa, and French Polynesia are among these states. These countries have developed not only the tourism sector but also the service sector and the industry in some large countries of the region. Given this, registration of a company in Oceania is a potentially lucrative option.

Advantages of registering a business in Oceania

If you are thinking about setting up a business in Oceania, the option could be potentially advantageous due to the number of benefits that are available in this area:

  • simplicity and clarity of registration rules;
  • openness to foreign capital;
  • no requirements to the obligatory attraction of residents;
  • favorable rates of taxation;
  • absence of currency control.

There may be additional benefits to doing business in Oceania in some industries. Provide Prifinance lawyers with other information to learn more about starting a business in Oceania.

Ways of doing business in Oceania

Business registration in Oceania can be done in the following forms, which are common to almost all jurisdictions in the region:

  • A limited liability company is a type of legal entity in which the participants have limited financial and legal responsibility for the results of the business. Even one person can form a legal entity. The maximum number of participants is limited. As a rule, up to 50 participants are allowed. This type of enterprise is the easiest and most flexible to form and maintain.
  • A joint-stock company is a business designed to raise external capital and place shares on stock markets. The number of participants in a JSC is unlimited, and their financial and legal liability is limited solely to the number of contributions. More complicated registration and accounting rules apply to JSCs.
  • A branch is the easiest option for a foreign entity, which, at minimal cost, gets to conduct the same activities in the territory of the jurisdiction in Oceania as in the region of the jurisdiction of prior registration.

The process of registering a company in Oceania

Company registration procedures in Oceania vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction but generally cover the following basic steps:

  1. Selection and reservation of the name for the future company in Oceania.
  2. Collection of data on the founders and beneficiaries of the future company.
  3. Search and registration of the registered address for the future legal entity in Oceania.
  4. Registration, articles of incorporation, as well as documents on the employment of the company's management.
  5. Sending the registration package for consideration.
  6. Registration with the tax authorities, as well as for mandatory social payments.
  7. Opening a bank account for a legal entity in Oceania.
  8. Registration of additional licenses and permits, which may be necessary to conduct certain regulated types of activities.

Regulatory environment in Oceania

Setting up a business in Oceania is easy enough. Bureaucratic formalities unencumber registration procedures, and local governments implement measures to attract foreign capital. Many jurisdictions in the region have government agencies that provide consulting and other support to businesses, including foreign companies.

Collaborated with the company for 3 years. I can’t say that everything was smooth from the point of view of organizing the work; there was confusion in the structure of the work, etc. But I’ll specifically highlight employee Lyubov Malinowski, she very diligently corrected all errors and was in touch at the right time, her help was significant in all processes and she approached all issues precisely. I would like to separately highlight the moment when she solved the problem at her own expense, which speaks of the person’s professionalism and increased responsibility.

As a software development crew at FewMoreTaps OÜ, we've had the pleasure of working with Prifinance on some key financial moves.First of all, navigating the world of corporate banking and finance can be a maze, but Prifinance made it feel like a walk in the park. They helped us set up a corporate bank account without the hassle of jumping on a plane or drowning in paperwork. Everything was done remotely, smoothly and securely.But that's not all. We had a slightly time-sensitive situation when it came to changing the beneficiary details on our account. Prifinance stepped up to the plate and handled everything quickly and professionally.It's not just about getting the job done. It's about how Prifinance does it. They're all about making complex financial matters simple and accessible for companies like ours. Plus, their team, especially Liubov Malinowski, has been nothing short of fantastic to work with - professional, timely and always on the ball.In short, FewMoreTaps OÜ wholeheartedly endorses Prifinance OÜ.

I'm thrilled with my experience with PriFinance! They helped me obtain a crypto license in Estonia without any hassle. The team was super understanding and always available to answer my questions and assist. It was great to see how they put effort into preparing the documents to ensure everything went smoothly. I'm delighted with the outcome and highly recommend PriFinance to anyone looking to get a license stress-free!
Opening an account with Prifinance in a Swiss bank was such an easy and quick process that I was shocked. It all started with the first call, where I received detailed guidance on the required documents and the entire procedure.One of the key highlights was their attention to detail. As someone who usually gets tangled up in paperwork, I was pleasantly surprised when they sent me all the documents and instructions clearly and neatly. No misunderstandings!Honestly, I expected opening a Swiss bank account to be complex and time-consuming, but thanks to Prifinance, I felt like a professional financial expert. Thank you for making this process so easy and enjoyable!
