Belize Offshore IBC

International Business Company (IBC) is the most widely used offshore corporate vehicle, its versions are available in most offshore jurisdictions. A Belize IBC is a private company designed to engage into any international business activity, exempt from tax in Belize, protecting the confidentiality of its owners and not subject to any reporting requirements.

A Belize International Business Company, by the definition of the law, is not subject to any tax or duty on income or profits. A Belize IBC is exempt from income tax, from taxes on all dividends, from taxes on all interests, rent, royalties, compensations and other amounts, on capital gains on shares, debt obligations or other securities.

Belize IBC is a completely tax-free offshore company, as long as it complies with a few conditions, stated in the Belize IBC Act, the main of which is that it must not conduct business within the territory of the jurisdiction. A Belize IBC may pursue specific financial activities like those connected with trust business, banking, insurance and investment management, but it needs to undergo a specific licensing for that purpose.

Belize has a modern and computerized IBC Registry, which provides for processing a Belize company registration within one hour.

Belize International Businness Company must pay a fixed annual fee to the Belize Government, which in most cases makes US$100 per year. The IBC license fees are very competitive, in particular as compared to some other more prominent offshore financial centres in the Caribbean.

Confidentiality is one of the key benefits of the Belize International Business Company. At registration, no information is filed on public record on the company beneficial owners, directors and shareholders. This information remains only known to the licensed Registered Agent, who is bound by the law to keep it completely confidential. The only documents of a Belize IBC held on public record are the Memorandum and the Articles of Association.
