Belize is the ideal location for incorporating an International Business Company (IBC). Prominent advantages include geographic locality, suitable time zone, political and economic constancy, common law legal system, educated, proficient and easily available professionals, English speaking personnel, modern electronic communications and significant tax advantages.
Incorporation takes only 3 days. Initially a name search will be conducted before the registration is submitted. We will let you know if your preferred name is not available and may offer some alternatives.
The usual authorised share capital is US $50,000. The minimum issued capital is one share of par value. Shares are permitted with or without par value, bearer shares, registered shares, voting or non-voting shares and in any currency. A Belize IBC may also purchase its own shares and redeem its own shares.
A minimum of One Director and One shareholder is required. There is no restriction on the nationality of residence. The director(s) and the shareholder(s) can be a physical person, a company, or can be the same person. The names of these company officials are not available for public access.
A Company Secretary is not a mandatory requirement of a Belize company. A registered agent and a registered office are required.
There is no requirement to file any accounts or to provide annual audits reports. However, a register of shares has to be maintained and updated.
Belize offers the traditional benefits of a tax haven since they currently have no Income tax or corporation tax; no capital gains tax; no inheritance tax or other estate taxes. A Belize IBC can trade anywhere in the world except within Belize.
