Bearer Shares

When shares are purchased and re-sold, shares are usually registered to a specific individual or company. Bearer shares bypass having registered shares by not including the name of the holder of the shares on the share certificate. 

Bearer shares have no name attached to them, meaning the details of the owner of the shares are not disclosed, therefore the shares can be transferred from one person to another without being recorded to public authorities.

We are delighted that Marshall Islands is a flexible jurisdiction who permit the issuing of bearer shares. Most jurisdictions do not allow bearer shares but companies in Marshall Islands who issue bearer shares must now make reasonable efforts to keep up-to-date records of all holders and beneficial owners of the bearer shares as well as any subsequent transfers. The records do not have to be recorded with the public authorities however, they should be recorded with the registered agent of the corporation to maintain the validity of the bearer share.

There is an additional cost to have Bearer Shares. The price is 395.00 GBP 

If you would like any further information on the issuance of bearer shares in Marshall Islands, please contact us for more information.
