The next time you're on vacation in Belize consider the following. Belize is an ideal place for the formation of an offshore company. Belize IBCs (International Business Companies) are companies that are commonly used for offshore banking, to conduct international trade, investment activities, and for asset protection. Belize IBC’s can be involved in buying and selling goods and services, holding bank accounts and operation of businesses. Belize IBCs are also commonly used for the ownership of real estate property and land; for ownership of intellectual property licensing and franchising; personal service by individuals working overseas and offshore e-business. These are just some examples. The Belize IBC may be used in many other ways to save on taxes.
Belize Companies and their Tax liability
Belize IBC’s are free from all taxation – they are exempt from Belize income tax, from tax on dividends, interest, royalties, compensations and other amounts paid by a company; also they are exempt from all the capital gains, estate, inheritance, succession or gift tax with respect to any shares, debt obligations or other securities of the Belize IBC’s.

Offshore Formations 247 are able to incorporate a Belize offshore company, normally on the same day we receive instructions.
Belize has traditionally offered excellent privacy. Belize offshore companies are not required to disclose the names of directors and beneficial owners to the registration authorities. Whilst there is no requirement to prepare and file annual accounts, a company is required to keep financial records, which reflect the financial position of the companyThere is no specific minimum capital requirement. The standard authorised share capital is US$ 50,000. The minimum issued capital may be one share of no par value or one share of par value. Registered shares, bearer shares, shares of no par value, preference shares, redeemable shares and shares with or without voting rights permitted. Belize companies can offer bearer shares whereby it’s not necessary to disclose the beneficial ownership of companies to any person in Belize. Bearer shares allow you to keep details of your shareholding private as ownership of the shares passes simply by physical transfer. As such, if you wanted to keep your holding of a particular company private, bearer shares could be ideal.
