WHAT IS REDOMICILIATION ?
The term company relocation/migration – generally referred to as ‘re-domiciliation’ – involves the de-registration of a company from its current jurisdiction and the re-registration in another jurisdiction. Re-domiciliation usually occurs when the original reasons why a company was incorporated in a particular jurisdiction do no longer exist or where another jurisdiction presents more advantages that the current jurisdiction does, therefore assists to the better evolvement of the company.
