The main characteristics of a company in Belize

We have briefly summarised for you the most relevant aspects concerning company formations in Belize:

An IBC in Belize guarantees complete anonymity. The beneficial owners of the company – trustees or persons with power of attorney are also possible – will not be entered into a register. We can provide such persons for you (both directors and shareholders).

You are not obliged to hire a company secretary.

The attractive tax environment is of course one of Belize’s remarkable features. Apart from a small annual lump-sum tax of 100 US dollars, you will be exempted from taxation. With the exception of property transactions and trade with the inhabitants of Belize, which are not permitted, you will be independent in your business activities.

With a company in Belize, you will save a lot of money and time that you probably used to spend on red tape and bookkeeping. You will be neither obliged to issue invoices or keep receipts nor will you have to create or publish a balance sheet. Member / Shareholder meetings do not have to take place in Belize – they can also be held via telephone.

There are no minimum share capital requirements. However, it is common practice to list 50,000 US dollars as virtual share capital, but you do not have to deposit this amount of money.

The member(s) / shareholder(s) as well as the director can be persons with power of attorney who neither operate nor reside in Belize.™ offers the provision of natural persons or corporate entities.

Belize companies are set up within a maximum of 48 hours. The formation costs are very low as are the annual renewal fees.

Thanks to international regulations, you will be able to enjoy full flexibility and protect your assets in the best possible way.
