Advantages of Cook Islands
International Company

The Cook Islands, while associated with New Zealand, is South Pacific Ocean self-governing island country. There are 15 islands comprising the Cook Islands. The approximate total land area is 92 square miles (240 square kilometers). The Cook Islands have an Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) which is attractive to foreign investors.

The Cook Islands offshore financial sector emerged in 1982 with the passing of the Cook Islands International Companies Act, which was later accompanied by an amending piece of asset protection legislation that is regarded as the most comprehensive and secure pieces of legislation in the world, firmly ensuring the assets of foreign Cook Island investors.

The last few years the Cook Islands, in order to comply with new international standards by the OECD and anti-money laundering directives, have had to institute several automatic tax agreements and reporting requirements.

Companies incorporated in the Cook Islands enjoy structural flexibility and simple administrative procedures in a highly secure and confidential location. There are minimal reporting and regulating restrictions with comprehensive protective offshore laws that ensure client security.

There are no other offshore jurisdictions that can boast of such extensive asset protection measures.

The Cook Islands are truly the safest place in the world

The Cook Islands also offers another widely used offshore formation product for their strong asset protection and security measures – the Cook Islands Trust.
