IBC and Trust Laws

The Belize International Business Companies Act of 1990 is designed to meet the needs of sophisticated international investors.

Benefits of IBC’s in Belize

  • Exemption from taxes on all income of an IBC
  • Exemption from taxes on all dividends paid by an IBC
  • Exemption from taxes on all interests, rent, royalties, compensations and other amounts paid by an IBC
  • Exemption from taxes on capital gains on shares, debt obligations or other securities of an IBC by non-residents
  • No currency restrictions
  • Meetings of shareholders and/or directors may be held in any country and may be attended by proxy
  • No citizenship or residency requirements for directors, officers or shareholders

Who qualifies?

Any person may singly or jointly with others incorporate a company under the International Business Companies Act. Every IBC must have a registered office and registered agent in Belize. An IBC in Belize is considered to be a company that does not:

  1. Carry on business with Belizean Residents
  2. Own real estate in Belize
  3. Carry on a banking or insurance business in Belize
  4. Act as a Registered Agent for another Belizean IBC
