How to get a forex license in the Comoro Islands

03. 02. 2023

The Forex license in the Comoros has become incredibly popular after other recognized jurisdictions introduced stricter regulations. For example, as of January 2023, the authorities of Is. St. Vincent and the Grenadines issued a memorandum requiring brokerage companies to provide them with copies of business licenses from countries where they trade.

There were also stricter requirements in Vanuatu, among which was the opening of a local office equipped with all the necessary tools for brokering. The forex license in Comoros does not have such strict requirements, so it is becoming increasingly popular.

Features of the forex license

A forex license in the Comoros is a great option for new companies, as well as for businesses that need to legalize urgently. It is not as prestigious as registering a forex license in Cyprus or the UK forex license, but the requirements are less. Another plus is that Comoros is not blacklisted by the EU, so there will be no problems with international transactions.

Separately, there is no permit for forex trading in Comoros. The applicant applies for a brokerage license, which also provides for forex currency trading. Other services that can be provided by a licensed brokerage company are:

  • operations with shares and other securities;
  • consulting on financial issues;
  • asset management, fund management;
  • depository activities;
  • clearing;
  • issuance and underwriting of securities.

Among the advantages of a brokerage license are quick registration and minimal bureaucracy. There are also no requirements to rent a local office and to personnel. But you should know that every brokerage company has to submit an annual report to CFC within 3 months after the end of the year.
