Offshore Company Benefits

To facilitate establishing a global e-commerce, e-gaming or e-betting presence, the States of Alderney has passed legislation to further the development of e-commerce on the island and to support the electronic transactions of business in a straightforward, non-bureaucratic form.

The Alderney Company law is modern, user-friendly legislation drafted with e-commerce operations in mind. It aims to ensure that company incorporation is not subject to unnecessary delays.
