    Additional Information for Samoa

    Offshore Formation Background in Samoa Offshore Company

    Samoa International Business Company's ('IBC's') are companies incorporated in Samoa under the International Companies Act of 1987, but whose business is to be conducted outside Samoa. An International Company cannot trade with Samoans or own local real estate. An International Company cannot undertake the business of banking, insurance, assurance, reinsurance, fund management, the management of collective investment schemes, trust management, trusteeship or any other activity that may suggest an association with the bank or insurance industries without obtaining the appropriate license.

    The uniqueness of the Samoan legislation is also demonstrated by an asset protection section of the Act (Section 228 (B)) whereby a member can elect that his shares in the company can be automatically vested in a specified person on the occurrence of a specified event. The definition of ""specified event"" is flexible but it typically includes the occurrence of a foreign expropriation or court order. This can also be used by the original beneficial owner to pass a company on to his or her beneficiary upon presentation of the death certificate of the original owner. There are no similar statutory provisions protecting member interests in BVI or other traditional jurisdictions.
