There are many reasons why a company would choose to trade internationally. Apart from market expansion, many companies take advantage of the low tax rates that countries, such as Malta, offer. Now that large amounts of money can be transmitted across the globe at the press of a button, the demand for international companies has never been higher and forming one is easier than ever. Electronic registration systems means that a lot less paperwork is needed. The time varies depending on the jurisdiction, but companies can now be approved within 24 hours or less.
Getting Legal Advice
It is important to understand company laws as forming an international company can be quite a minefield if you don’t know exactly what you are doing. In all cases it is important to hire professional legal help to get your company off the ground.
You will need advice and assistance in contract drafting and negotiation, branding and marketing, regulatory matters, consumer protection issues, commercial agreements and litigation. GTG Advocates will provide all this as well as drafting the Memorandum and Articles of Association, the principle corporate document regulating your company. They can also assist in establishing corporate governance principles ready for inserting into a shareholders agreement and they will provide advice on the most efficient corporate structure suitable for your business and operational needs.
Getting Global Customers
It is very important these days to have a strong online presence to attract global customers. You will need a good company website and it is also advisable to make use of social media, such as setting up your own company Facebook page and Twitter account. You could also set up your own blog and give information via videos and tips to draw people to your company. Remember to keep your message short and simple and try not to bombard potential customers with technical language.
