As a common saying goes, there are only two fun days in the life of a yacht-owner – the day he buys it and the day he sells it. However that is not true if you’re registered in the Seychelles! This beautiful country of everlasting summer and home of one of the most plentiful fishing grounds in the world just calls for a boat trip to come and explore the 115 islands for treasures they offer.
Can you imagine, that the ownership of a boat can be 100% foreign? The process of registration is streamlined and the port offers modern facilities for all size of yachts and vessels.
Should you prefer to own a yachting business and lead your customers on the journey of exploration and big game fishing, then for you there is exemption from social security contributions for non-Seychellois personnel and no capital gains on sale of the vessel.
Hensley&Cook is now the NUMBER 1 YACHT REGISTRAR in the Seychelles! Please contact us if you like to learn more about the advantages of a yacht registration in the Seychelles.

End of 2018, the UAE government introduced the possibility of “dual licenses” for free zone and mainland UAE companies. This allows companies of participating free zones to apply for a license to become a UAE mainland company as well.
The Dubai Multi Commodity Center (DMCC) now signed a MoU with the Dubai Economic Department (DED) to facilitate such dual licensed companies. This scheme will allow DMCC companies to establish operations in mainland Dubai by obtaining a DED license apart from the DMCC license.
In order to uphold adherence to the best international norms and practices, 1st January 2019 Seychelles enacted several legislative amendments which now offer Seychelles IBC owners an opportunity to carry on business in Seychelles, become tax residents and profit from the growing list of Double Tax Treaties. Business owners should note that only income derived in Seychelles would be subject to tax.
Contact Hensley&Cook team to learn how these changes can positively affect your business.
