Choose the jurisdiction which best suits your needs
Why choose this jurisdiction when starting a business?
The Cook Islands is located in the South Pacific Ocean, south of Hawaii.
The country consists of 15 islands spread over 1 million square miles of ocean. The island of Rarotonga is the capital, and home to more than 60% of the population. English is the everyday language.
Originally a colony of Britain, then New Zealand, the Cook Islands achieved limited self-government in 1957, and became “self-governing in free association with New Zealand” in 1965. All Cook Islanders hold dual New Zealand and Cook Islands nationality and the country continues to enjoy a close relationship with New Zealand.
The offshore centre was established in 1981 initially targeting markets in Australasia and driven by merchant banking transactions. In 1989 the Cook Islands became the first country to introduce asset protection laws and it remains the leading jurisdiction for asset protection trusts. This industry now dominates the financial centre.
The Cook Islands International Companies Act 1981 (“ICA”) governs the formation and activities of international companies, otherwise known as IBC’s, Offshore Companies, or Offshore Corporations. The ICA allows companies to be formed and operated with both flexibility and administrative ease. International companies are exempt from all tax in the Cook Islands.
