Protected Cell Company (PCC).

This form of company is ideal, if you want to protect different assets or investments from liabilities of other assets or investments: Investments in one cell are not liable to for debts in another cell.

The PCC is a unique concept which allows you to set up a single company with multiple cells allowing you to invest into different assets or businesses through a single entity. The Seychelles PCC set up time is relatively quick and inexpensive.

The PCC is a corporate entity, which has been designed to hold assets in one or more segregated cells. The idea behind this structure is to separate the assets in each cell (business) from those activities in other cells to protect each cell from liabilities of any other cell.

The popularity of the PCC has been increasing at a fast pace due to the advantages it has to offer:

  • The PCC is ideal for the use in umbrella funds and captive insurance structures, because the losses of one cell will not have an adverse effect on the other cells.
  • The PCC can limit the exposure to creditors as the cells are independent and liabilities can only be applied to the assets of that particular cell.
  • It is a more cost effective way of structuring than the incorporation of several subsidies to invest in different businesses.
  • The PCC profits from exemption of stamp duty in respect of properties, shares and all transactions relating to the business of the company.
  • The company does not pay tax on income derived from outside the Seychelles.
