How To Order a Private Interest Foundation

A Private Interest Foundation (or a name check) can be ordered quickly and easily.


No matter whether you’re ready to set up your Private Foundation or still figuring out the best way to go about it, either way, the first thing you’ll want to do is to check that your preferred Foundation name is available.


The good news is unlike some Company/Trust Retailers (who charge for name inquiries) we offer an obligation & cost free name inquiry service.

  • How To Check if Your Preferred Name is Available:

To make a name inquiry simply choose (from the drop down menu below) the name of the country you are thinking of incorporating in& then type in your preferred company name, your name and your email address.


Depending on the jurisdiction it can take anywhere from 24 hours to 5 working days to complete a name inquiry. Within 24 hours of receiving a reply from the registry we will email you to let you know whether your preferred name has been approved or not.

  • How To Register A Private Interest Foundation

Compared with a Company aFoundation is a much more sophisticated kind of business structure. Hence the process for registering a Foundation is a little different than the process for incorporating a company.


Once you’ve decided what country you want to register it in (ie Seychelles or Panama) and who the Founder of your Foundation should be (if you’re not sure what a Founder is click on this link: What is a Founder) to Order a Foundation all you need to do is:

  1. Download, complete, sign and email us a Foundation Order Form
  2. Email us due diligence documents (certified copy passport and proof of residential address) as regards the Settlor and Beneficiaries and any Protector required (if you’re not sure what a Protector is click on this link: What is a Protector).
  3. Make payment (we will send you a proforma invoice for settling once we’ve received your completed order form)

Within 48 hours of receiving the above we will draft the application to Register the Foundation and Foundation Charter and email them to you for you (and/or your professional advisers) to review. (If you’re not sure what a Charter is click on this link: What is a Charter).


Once the final text of the Charter has been approved by you we will then proceed to lodge the Registration request with the registry. Thereafter we will draft the Regulations and forward them to you for review (If you’re not sure what Regulations are click on this link: What are Foundation Regulations). From the time we receive your consent to the final draft of the Charter it usually takes around 5 working days to register a Foundation.
