Electronic money license in Australia

The Commission on Regulation and Control of the Turnover of Finances in Australia offers non-resident entrepreneurs favorable conditions for obtaining certificates for the use of electronic money in the territory of the jurisdiction of a given state. The reasons why a lot of businessmen seek to pass licensing in this country are the following:

  1. Free use of different types of currencies without the need for constant conversion.
  2. Use of simplified tax reporting systems and reduced level of tax rates.
  3. Existence of legislation with clear regulation of certain disputes in the field of material and electronic finance.

Law&Trust Company offers services of the lawyers for prompt certification of entrepreneurial activities. Counterparty of any type from among the citizens of the country and non-resident can obtain permission for virtual money in Australia online.

Both of the foregoing undergo the same procedure for considering the package of documents, but foreign businessmen will need to open a representative office of own corporation in Australia.
The main condition is the authorized capital in the amount of 5,000,000 Australian dollars.
