A Labuan protected cell company (PCC) may be incorporated as a Labuan company or converted from an existing Labuan company. A Labuan PCC is a limited liability company with a legal entity that has the ability to form “cells”.

The cells of a Labuan PCC may comprise:

  • A core for holding non-cell assets or general assets; and
  • Any number of cells with the intention of segregating and protecting the assets of each respective cell.

Neither the core nor the individual cells created are separate legal entities but nonetheless, each cell is legally separated from any other cell and each has sufficient attributes to carry on business independently under the “umbrella” of the Labuan PCC.
