Incorporation is the legal process used to form a Company, which is a legal entity separate from its owners, with its own rights and obligations. A limited liability Company with share capital is the most widely used legal vehicle for business in Gibraltar.
Incorporation provides many advantages for a business and its owners: protection from personal liability for business debts, improved access to financing for business activities, simple transfer of business ownership through the transfer of shares and potential for tax planning through access to lower corporation tax rates and international tax treaties.
A company is required to maintain a Registered Office in its country of incorporation. We usually provide this minimum service for all our clients.
As your local representative, AIX will maintain your Company’s good standing in accordance with legal requirements by the provision of the Registered Office address in Gibraltar and will receive and handle mail sent to the Company at the Registered Office.
Company Secretarial Services
The Company Secretary is the most senior administrative officer of a private or public company. Their role is to ensure that the company complies with all the standard financial and legal requirements required by law or regulation.
The risk of non-compliance with applicable laws and regulations raises a potential for adverse consequences for the Company and its officers. It is essential to know that your company is and remains in good standing, that business decisions are accurately implemented and that necessary changes can be effected in a straightforward and timely manner.

Most companies require a bank account to carry out business, but opening a new bank account has become increasingly difficult in recent years due to international transparency and anti-money laundering requirements.
Many banks will no longer open accounts for non-resident companies and others will only open accounts for clients who are introduced by a recognised and licensed service provider that is on their ‘approved list’.
