The Seychelles International Business Authority
The Seychelles International Business Authority (SIBA) was established in 1995 under the Seychelles International Business Authority Act of 1994. The SIBA is governed by a Board of Directors made up of prominent members from both public and private sectors.
The Authority is essentially a one-stop shop that covers both licensing and regulation of the primary offshore business activities. It is the Registrar for International Business Companies, International Trusts, Protected Cell Company, Companies Special License, and Limited Partnerships. In addition it regulates International (Free) Trade Zone activities in the Seychelles. SIBA also hosts and disseminates educational information for other offshore entities/services offered by the local jurisdiction, namely, the Mutual Funds, Offshore Banking, Offshore Insurance, and Ship/Yacht Registrations. Because of the dedicated professionals and efficient systems, SIBA has a highly effective and efficient organisation. It is able to provide name approvals quickly and issue licences with minimum bureaucracy, whilst still maintaining appropriate due diligence processes.
