Why do people use a nominee director service to register a company?

A nominee manager/director is useful for a variety of reasons when registering a limited liability company and Temple Stoke lawyers and partners have years of experience.  When registering an International Business entity in SVG or in conjunction with ship registration, the experienced lawyers at Temple Stoke will always give you advice about the best possible route to incorporation.

The anonymity of the true owner is preserved when appointing a nominee director of a company limited by shares and this secrecy is entirely legitimate.

All registered companies appear on the official register at CIPO SVG  or for LLCs the FSA register along with the associated named directors. If you do not wish to appear on this database for reasons of confidentiality or as part of a business strategy or sensitivities, a nominee director can be appointed to be the official public representative or face of the limited company.

In reality, you will still be the individual person in full control of the business – this is maintained with the use of a power of attorney or similar facility.

Note: in the event, the arrangement is no longer tenable and you wish to terminate your nominee director, a pre-written letter of resignation can be kept on file that can essentially be triggered at any given time.
