Nominee Services we Provide for your Entity

Nominee Directors

 You are a foreigner who wants to set up a local entity in Nigeria, but you would like to have a local director on ground to act on your instructions and move the company forward. You are a foreigner who wishes to protect your identity and not make it known to the world that you are involved in the company, especially if its activities are of a sensitive nature. You want to avoid being a named director in a company in a foreign jurisdiction whose legal and compliance requirements are unfamiliar to you. If you fall in within any of these categories, we can help you.

Our Nominee Director service allows you to give us the leave to appoint directors for your [Nigerian] company. These nominee directors are always hand-picked from our crop of professional lawyers, all of whom are well versed in company matters in Nigeria, to act on all your instructions for your company.

 Nominee Shareholders

As a foreign entity, you might be interested in floating a Nigerian entity for the West African or Nigerian arm of your operations but there is a compliance requirement for minimum share capital of ₦100,000,000 [One Hundred Million Naira] which you are expected by law to import into Nigeria as a foreigner before your company commences business that you are not able to meet up with. Or, you may be dealing with instances where you want to avoid disclosure of your personal information as a person with significant control [PSC] of your company or reduce the tax burdens of being a foreign shareholder in Nigeria.

In that case, we can provide your company with nominee shareholders through our Nigerian Nominee Shareholder service. Our Nominee Shareholders are all legal practitioners who maintain the highest ethical standards and confidentiality and will act as custodians of your shares, without holding sway over your [Nigerian] company’s affairs.

Virtual Offices

 We offer virtual offices to our [international] clients who require national incorporation in the Federal Republic of Nigeria but would rather not be fully immersed in the country through actively maintaining offices in Nigeria. We are therefore available to provide office addresses for foreign-owned companies or foreign individuals seeking local incorporation but don’t want the hassle of maintaining offices by themselves; receiving correspondence and documents for them, performing administrative tasks, while leaving you free to work from anywhere without having to invest in long-term office leases.

Through our virtual office service you can enjoy the flexibility of working remotely, while you are still able to communicate with your clients in Nigeria.

We provide our comprehensive Nominee Services through Kabbiz Global Nominees Limited.
