Entity Formations and Foreign Registrations

In Guam, the main entity structures commonly used for business operations include corporations (both C corporations and S corporations), limited liability companies (LLCs), partnerships, and sole proprietorships. Each structure offers different levels of liability protection, taxation methods, and operational flexibility to suit varying business needs.

For corporations, the incorporation process in Guam typically involves choosing a unique business name, appointing directors and officers, drafting articles of incorporation, and filing them with the Guam Department of Revenue and Taxation (DRT). This process also includes obtaining an Employer Identification Number (EIN) from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) if the corporation plans to hire employees or engage in certain business activities.

Limited liability companies (LLCs) follow a similar incorporation process, which includes choosing a unique business name, appointing managers or members, drafting articles of organization, and filing them with the Guam DRT. LLCs provide a flexible and tax-efficient structure for businesses, combining the liability protection of corporations with the operational flexibility of partnerships.

Partnerships in Guam can be general partnerships (GPs) or limited partnerships (LPs). GPs involve two or more individuals or entities sharing profits and liabilities equally, while LPs have general partners who manage the business and limited partners who contribute capital but have limited liability. The partnership agreement outlines the rights, responsibilities, and profit-sharing arrangements among partners.

Sole proprietorships are the simplest form of business structure in Guam, where an individual operates the business and is personally responsible for all liabilities. While easy to establish, sole proprietorships do not offer liability protection, making them suitable for small businesses with minimal risk exposure.

Registered Agent/Registered Office

In Guam, companies are required to have a registered office address where official documents and notices can be delivered. This address must be a physical location within Guam’s territory and must be accessible during regular business hours. The registered office serves as the company’s legal address for communication with government agencies and other entities. Complying with these requirements is crucial for maintaining good standing and ensuring that the company can effectively receive important correspondence and legal notices.

Due diligence searches, including court records search, bankruptcy checks, and liens searches, are crucial for assessing the legal and financial status of businesses in Guam. Court records searches provide insights into any ongoing or past legal disputes or judgments involving the entity. Bankruptcy checks reveal the financial stability and potential risks associated with insolvency, while liens searches uncover any encumbrances on assets that may affect business transactions.
