The main characteristics of a branch in Gibraltar

A branch is an extension of the foreign parent company that does not have its own legal identity and thus is fully dependent on the mother company. It offers the investor the possibility to engage in economic and trading activities in Gibraltar and establish a strong client base there. The branch is a good option for foreign companies that want to control the activity of the Gibraltar company. However, the foreign company must be prepared to deal with any liabilities or debts that may be incurred by the branch in Gibraltar.

Registering a Gibraltar branch office

Like other types of legal entities, the branch must be registered in order to carry out the same activities as the parent-company. The founder must submit the following documents to the Companies House in order to register a branch in Gibraltar:

  • - the parent company’s official name;
  • - the country in which the parent company is incorporated;
  • - information about the company’s directors;
  • - copies after the articles of association;
  • - information about the appointed authorized personnel in Gibraltar;
  • - information about the foreign company’s accounts.

A registration fee must also be paid when making the application. The documents must be translated into English.

The corporate tax rate applicable in Gibraltar is 10%- one of the lowest rates in Europe. The parent company must also issue a copy of its financial statements for the branch to file them with the Gibraltar Trade Register.
