There is no big issue with providing due diligence to a service provider if you want to incorporate a company. Offshore service providers do not want to be in a position where they have been given false names and addresses. Therefore, requesting certified identity documents and doing checks on potential clients is a reasonable solution. The information collected is not passed to anyone outside of the service provider you used.
Depending on where you incorporate, the level of due diligence will be different. You can incorporate in the United States of America State of Delaware if your top priority is minimal due diligence. Obviously, if you
were a U.S. Citizen or Resident the usefulness of such a company would be limited in terms of tax minimization. There are other countries that you can use but this one is probably the most widely known.
It is probably a good idea to pick a country not known as an offshore tax haven. Some countries do not tax the international
activity of companies incorporated there and is owned by a non-citizen. You will have to file annual returns but the company would not be liable for any taxes.
