Nominee service is an intermediary ownership and management tool, meaning the appointment to official positions in the company (director, secretary), or as a shareholder, nominee persons, both physical and legal.
A nominee Director is a third party, physical or legal, who is nominated to act as a director in a Company. A Nominee Director Service Agreement has to be signed prior to the appointment of the Director which will define in detail the duties and/or limitations of the Nominee.
A nominee Shareholder is a third party, physical or legal, who is holding shares and other securities on behalf of the actual Beneficial Owner (s). The Nominee Shareholder does not actually own the shares and/or the securities and the actual Beneficial Owner (s) is entitled to all income and capital gains derived from the shares and/or the securities. A Declaration of Trust has to be signed between the Nominee Shareholder and the actual Beneficial Owner (s). The Trust will be kept in the Company’s Registered Office and will not be public record.
In today’s complex environment with constant changes in regulations and greater demands for transparency, the Company Secretary’s role became very demanding and time consuming.
The duties of a Company Secretary are different in every country due to the different regulations and statutory requirements in place. Our local teams have detailed knowledge of the regulations and can deliver efficient and reliable Company Secretarial Services in every jurisdiction we operate.
