KAZAKHSTAN: DEPOSITORY AGENT WITH LICENSE FROM NATIONAL BANK (RECOMMENDED)
We are setting up an official payment processor for the bank in one of the four free zones in Georgia, where so-called special licenses, ia. are issued for financial services. The license also includes the approval for activities such as customer money acceptance, venture and private capital, crypto based services or even an own ICO launch with the subsequent security token trading. Bank accounts are opened at the two largest banks (Bank of Georgia and TBC Bank).
Alternatively we recommend a setup of a Depository Agent in Kazakhstan. We setup the company, opening TWO corporate bank accounts (multi currency) and applying for a license from the National Bank stating that this company is entitled to process FX, Securities Dealing and of course PSP like activities such as remittance services and payment processing on behalf of third parties.
The Georgian FreeZone has been established by the Law of Georgia on Free Industrial Zones; The Decree of the Government of Georgia # 131 dated June 3, 2008 on Approval of the Rules on Creation, Arrangement and Free Zone Operation and the Georgian Tax Code. The Free Zone Company is not under the supervision of the National Bank of Georgia, as it does not provide services within Georgia and Georgia, and therefore is not viewed and monitored as a player in Georgia.
Staff & Office
It suffices for both companies (bank and depository agent) one person to act as director and shareholder. It is not mandatory in the Comoros (autonomous regions), nor in Georgia or Kazakhstan, to employ staff or maintain proper local offices. Anyway, the required local addresses and Registered Agent Services are provided by Pameroy. Important: We definitely recommend naming a second person as Compliance Officer. It is not mandatory; However, it is recommended: International standard to effectively counter AML and terrorist financing. The rules are available from us.
