Samoa

A Guide to Samoan Companies

Samoa, the Centre of the Universe-- that is, the Pacific Ocean. Samoa is a group of Pacific Islands located in the heart of Polynesia. It is composed of 2 main islands and is situated approximately half way between Hawaii and New Zealand. Samoa was a German territory following the Treaty of Berlin in 1889. In 1919 the Treaty of Versailles awarded Samoa to New Zealand under a League of Nations mandate. Samoa gained independence in 1962, being the first independent sovereign state in the South Pacific. It is an English Common Law jurisdiction.

Among many, Samoa brings 3 exciting features to the offshore incorporations world:

 

  • Today, you can incorporate a company Yesterday. I’d say Samoa has a rather useful time zone.
  • The standard authorized capital is USD$1 million dollars. It is the highest authorized capital available, at the most reasonable incorporation fee.
  • Confidentiality and secrecy; that's it, it's built into every piece of offshore legislation.
