Nevis Multiform Foundation Registration

A Nevis Multiform Foundation is a powerful asset holding and estate planning tool.

The Nevis Foundation is an attractive asset holding and protection tool that is embraced by persons with or without wealth. Similar to the Nevis Business Corporation (Nevis IBC) and Limited Liability Company (and unlike the Nevis Trust) it and its assets take on a separate legal identity to that of its Founder(s) or Creator(s).

The Nevis Multiform Foundation Ordinance is a relatively new legislation that was passed in 2005. As the name suggests, it has the flexibility to take on many forms as it can be treated as an Ordinary Foundation, a Partnership Foundation, a Company Foundation or a Trust Foundation.

The establishment of a Foundation is done by the filing of an original Memorandum of Establishment and by-laws (if any) and must be in English. The name of the Foundation has to be checked for its availability before it can be registered.

Benefits of a Nevis Foundation

  • Can change its function during its lifetime from a Trust Foundation to a Company Foundation.

  • No taxes are applied to a Nevis Foundation.

  • Profits or gains of a Nevis Foundation are not taxed.
  • Provision for the conversion, consolidation or merger of corporate entity (ies) into a Nevis Foundation.

What our clients are saying

ACME Trust Services is an exceptional agency that expediently helped me setup my startup company. Jessica and her team are outstanding professionals that understand that customers need to have piece of mind when remotely doing business. Her communication during the process helped ease me through the entire process. Thanks to Jessica I was able to setup the company within two weeks. There are companies that charge less but from what others have reviewed I believe you end up paying for the cost savings through extended setup times.

A review from “KXL” on

Several months ago, I used ACME Trust services and they did not disappoint me. They are rock solid offshore agents in Nevis. I got my offshore company even before expected as well as my bank accounts. They were very helpful, hands on and polite professionals to work with. Definitely using them again in the future.
