Customer Question

Category: Offshore anonymous company (Liberia)

Aim: Establish ultimate beneficial ownership

Available documents: Board of directors and shareholders meeting minutes (signed); corporate account details (name, registered address); list of authorized signatories (signed); authorization and indemnity form (signed)

I am trying to determine the possibility of establishing ultimate beneficial ownership of an offshore anonymous company (Liberian) to a physical person.

What I have in my possession are original bank documents with corporate account details signed by only the authorized signatory, i.e. only officer of this company (at least, and as far as I can ascertain, according to Liberian bylaws).

In addition, the same signatory is signed as present at two board of directors and shareholders meeting. However, it can be established that no other person was physically present during these meetings, although the signatures of the people absent were subsequently obtained.

My question is, can the sole presence of the only officer (authorized signatory) at a BoD and shareholders meeting count as proof that this person is then the only shareholder of this company?

If yes, do photocopies of the minutes that show this count as evidence in court or are originals required?

If no, what other types of evidence would be required as proof of ultimate beneficial ownership?
