Gibraltar Company Formation from 2800€


Setting up a Business in Gibraltar

– The most common Gibraltar entity type is Limited company (Ltd). Other possible entity types in Gibraltar are:

  1. Partnerships
  2. Limited Liability Partnership
  3. Protected Cell Companies
  4. Trusts
  5. Non-profit Making Organizations

In accordance with the Companies Act 1930, companies are required to be incorporated in Gibraltar as:

  • A company limited by shares
  • A company limited by guarantee with or without a share capital
  • An unlimited company with or without share capital

The services of a professional expert should again be sought when incorporating a limited company, although this is not a strict requirement. Generally, setting up this structure may cost well over £1.000 – £3.000, though this is habitually considered to be money well spent since the professional appointed will produce and implement all the intricate incorporation documentation as well as offer to undertake other services.

A limited company may own assets, enter into contracts, borrow and lend money, as well as sue and be sued in its own name. The legal personality of the limited company is separated from its individual shareholders (owners). However, it is common practice for banks and landlords to seek personal guarantees from the directors, by making them personally liable for obligations should the business fail.

The liabilities of a company are distinct from those of its shareholders. The company is liable for its debts to the full extent of its assets, though this liability does not extend to the personal assets of its shareholders. A company also has perpetual existence, thus the ownership can pass at any time through the transfer of the shares; this being an ideal vehicle for expansion.

There are some points that need to be noted on the subject of company incorporation:

  • All companies must comply with the provisions of the Companies Act
  • There are normally fees for the management of a company
  • Company details can be disclosed even if limited by shares
  • Accounts and other returns are necessary and are by and large an annual requirement

There are numerous regulations governing the administration of a company, with the duties, responsibilities and liabilities of directors being set out in the Companies Act 1930.

To view the Companies Act visit:

The first step when forming a Gibraltar Company is to ensure that the proposed name is acceptable to the Company Registrar. Once the name is approved, the following documents need to be submitted in accordance with the provisions of the Companies Act:

  • Memorandum of Association
  • Articles of Association
  • Declaration of Compliance
  • Notice of Situation of Registered Office
  • Statement of Nominal Share Capital

A registration fee of £50 is currently payable at the time of presentation of the documents. The Memorandum and Articles of Association must be embossed with the appropriate Stamp Duty.

Step 1:
Fill a Novasigma company order form and send all required details and certified documents about business activity, shareholders, directors and at least three (3) name suggestions. Remote registration availble in case of all documents have been apostilled.

Step 2:
Novasigma will prepare Memorandum of Association, Articles of Association, Declaration of Compliance, Notice of Situation of Registered Office and Statement of Nominal Share Capital

Step 3:
The time taken to incorporate a Company in Gibraltar is normally three working days, though a company may be incorporated within 24 hours if necessary for a fee of £100. Once incorporated, a Certificate of Incorporation is issued. Under Gibraltar legislation, only barristers or acting solicitors of the Supreme Court may incorporate Companies for gain.

After the registration company can start business operations and open a bank account. If your business activites will be located outside of Gibraltar we strongly suggest to consult us for a list of available banking and payment solution. We also suggest you to hire an accountant.
