The International Business Companies Act 1990 of Belize created a special category of company known as an International Business Company (IBC), more commonly known as a Belize offshore company. Today Belize is one of the largest leading offshore centers in the world.  (Visit our About Belize page to learn more.)  The law was enacted to permit asset protection and tax minimization planning at competitive rates. Some of the attributes of the Act are:

  • IBCs have total exemption from all forms of local taxation including Stamp Duty. Speedy and simple registration.
  • Only one subscriber is required; thereafter one shareholder and one director are required.
  • Limited filing requirements, mainly certificate of incorporation, memorandum and articles of association.
  • No exchange control.
  • Low registration fee for new incorporations.
  • Low continuation fee.
  • Belize IBCs can be registered in any language and company names may be registered in the language of origin.
  • Allows for Belize limited life companies, Belize limited duration companies, Belize protected cell companies.
