On its own, a limited liability company (LLC) has many advantages. Indeed, an LLC ownership structure is ideal for wealthy individuals seeking tax relief and protection from creditor liability. However, the benefits of the Nevis LLC are supercharged.
The Nevis LLC is a potent offshore asset protection vehicle that is much more effective than any onshore strategy. But there is more. The fortifications of the Nevis LLC are further solidified with the St Kitts and Nevis citizenship program. Why not have both? As a result, a St Kitts and Nevis citizen who is also a member of their own Nevis LLC has a myriad of benefits.
This two-step offshore asset protection plan will secure your assets beyond the reach of any foreseeable adversity. Not to mention, you can eliminate all of your income tax. Learn more→
Combined Benefits of Nevis LLC and Citizenship
To be fair to the Nevis LLC, it could serve as a stand alone option, with or without citizenship. Although an exception may be necessary when our client is from a residence or citizenship based taxation country. As a result, they will need to consider second citizenship as a supplement to the Nevis LLC.
Either way, St Kitts and Nevis citizenship benefits you in ways that go far beyond your business investments. You can make note of the personal benefits. Indeed, having your Plan B in place could literally save your life sometime soon. This is more true now than ever before. We are watching the onset of what could be a world war in the near future.

Step One – Obtain St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship
Established in 1984, St Kitts and Nevis citizenship by investment is the oldest such program in the world. An applicant for citizenship must have a clean background, verifiable source of wealth and produce a medical certificate. In addition, you can invest $220,000 into an approved St Kitts real estate development.
Complete these items successfully and receive the St Kitts and Nevis passport. You must then hold the real estate investment for a minimum of seven years. After the holding period, you can sell the investment to recoup your capital while retaining St Kitts citizenship in perpetuity.
Before you invest, all of the application forms must be completed in full. They will be submitted in addition to all of the required supporting documents. We will walk you through the entire approval process.

After obtaining citizenship, we will assist you to acquire a St Kitts driver’s license, tax identification number, local SIM card/phone bills plus a local street address.

Step Two – Nevis LLC Registration
The Nevis LLC legislation has required that the company maintains a registered local agent at all times. We can suggest your local agent for you at your request. The local agent will file the “Articles of Organization” and reserve the name of the Nevis LLC with the Registrar of Companies.
If required by the Articles of Organization, members of the LLC may enter into an “Operating Agreement”. Although not a mandatory filing, this document would define the company operations and rights among members.
The Articles of Organization must include the following:
- name of the limited liability company;
- statement that the company was formed under the Nevis LLC Ordinance;
- the latest date the company will dissolve, or if the company will have an unlimited duration it must be specified;
- name of the registered agent of the limited liability company;
- registered office address of the limited liability company in Nevis which shall be the registered office of its registered agent;
- specify whether the company will be managed by its managers exclusive of the members or by its members in their capacity as members;
- the purposes for which the limited liability company was formed;
- the name and address for each organizer of the limited liability company.
Nevis LLC Benefits List
- Income Tax Exemption: A limited liability company formed under the laws of the Nevis LLC Ordinance shall pay no tax on income originating from outside the Federation of Saint Christopher and Nevis.
- Legal Liability Protection: The limited liability company has distinct rights and liabilities separate from its managers or members. As a result, the LLC is liable for its own obligations, debts and liabilities.
- Any Lawful Business Purpose: An LLC formed under the laws of Nevis may be used for any lawful business purpose. This may include professional practice of legitimate business ventures including real estate holdings, manufacturing concerns, or as an operational or investment vehicle for international trusts.
- Flexibility of Ownership Structure: An LLC requires at least one member who is the legal owner. Corporations are permitted to act as members or managers. The appointment of officers is not required in the Nevis LLC. Any business entity or person can act as manager.
- Easy Transfer of Domicile: A foreign LLC may easily transfer its domicile to Nevis. In addition, other foreign entities may convert to a Nevis LLC after transferring their domicile in an equally simple process. There is also a provision for emergency transfer of domicile into Nevis.
- Creditor Bond Requirement: A creditor seeking to bring an action to collect a judgement against a member of a Nevis LLC must post a cost bond. The limit of the bond was USD 100,000. However, in 2018 the ceiling was eliminated which allows Nevis courts to set the limit as they see fit.
- Certificated LLC Interests: The certificated LLC issues certificates of membership which are deemed as sole evidence of LLC ownership. Legally similar to bearer bonds or stock certificates, the member can locate their Nevis LLC certificates in Nevis or any other more advantageous jurisdiction.
