No Risk Fast-track Set Up Process

It’s easy to get your company set up in CEC using our streamlined application process:

  1. Contact us today and let us know the nature of the business operations you wish to undertake from the zone, so we can ensure you fit it.
  2. Let us know the number of people you would like to relocate to Cayman (these can be part-time or full-time people), the amount of office space you need and your technology requirements. Complete a CEC application and sign a Licence Agreement (See PDFs) and send a refundable deposit.
  3. Provide a coloured certified copy of the passport of the proposed directors, and we email you the SEZ Authority (SEZA) paperwork for completion. We then put in a pre-approval application for you to the SEZA and you should know within 5 working days if your application has been accepted.
  4. You will then need a local Cayman law firm or corporate services provider to incorporate a Special Economic Zone Company (SEZCO) for you which entitles you to the zone concessions and benefits. Once they have undertaken the normal due diligence and your company can be incorporated. We provide certified copies of the incorporation documents to SEZA and a couple of days later your Trade Certificate will be issued so you can begin operations. If you do not have a Cayman law firm, we would be delighted to refer a tried and tested one to you.
  5. We then assist you with completing the paperwork for the Work/Residency visas for any staff you wish to locate in Cayman. They will need to undertake a medical, obtain a police clearance from their home jurisdiction proving they do not have a criminal record and provide some head shot photos. We submit the application for you and 5 days later you should have their Work/Residency visas. Alternatively we help you find local staff through our free Cayman Jobs portal.

We have a no risk process – if for any reason your application is not accepted by the Special Economic Zone Authority (SEZA), your contract with CEC would be cancelled and your deposit fully refunded. This ensures that you only invest in incorporating your Special Economic Zone Company once you know for sure that you will be approved and accepted into the Zone.
