This page was last updated on 11 January 2020.
If a foreign company intends to establish a branch or a permanent place of business in the Isle of Man, it is subject to Part XI of the Companies Act 1931, which provides for registration on the island. Within one month, it must deposit with the registrar a certified copy of its memorandum and articles of association, a list and particulars of its directors and company secretary, and details of one or more resident individuals authorised to receive notices and communications. Once registered, the foreign company will be treated in the same way as a Manx company.
