location. However, this is but the tip
of the iceberg when it comes to the services provided by Chesterfield.
Below is an easy to follow overview of the breadth of
services available through our firm.

Registered Office: This is the most basic of
services. In order to be legally
registered in an offshore location you must have an address in that

in the UK, if your registered address is in the UK then your company must be
registered there. Chesterfield offer
registered office in a variety of jurisdictions.
