 Introduction of Belize

Belize is the only English Speaking country in Central America, located between Mexico and Guatemala on the western Caribbean and operating in a convenient time zone.  In the past the majority of the population was English or Creole speaking African-descent Creoles.  Spanish speaking Latinos and Mestizos now comprise 53% of the population (2010 census estimates) but the country continues in a relatively peaceful path of socio political development as it finds its unique place as a bilingual and young nation state on the Central American Isthmus.

 

Belize law is derived from the English Common Law System supplemented by local legislation.

 

It became a British Crown Colony in 1862 and achieved complete self rule in 1981. Belize is a member of the British Commonwealth, the United Nations, the Non-Aligned Movement, the International Monetary Fund, the Organization of American States, and the World Bank.

 

The political system is based on the British Westminster Model with Queen Elizabeth II, represented by a Belizean Governor General, as titular Head of State. Executive authority is exercised by the cabinet under the leadership of the Prime Minister. Legislative authority vests in a 29 member House of Representatives elected by universal adult suffrage every five years. In addition there is an 8 member Senate with the majority appointed on the recommendation of the Prime Minister.

 

 

What is a Belize IBC?

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.

 

A Belize IBC is a legal entity which is free from all local taxes (except annual fees).  Belize has a special IBC legislation in place with MANY benefits.  An IBC is defined as a company that pays no taxes, and is for the most part free of trade and other restrictions such as exchange control, trade licensing and public disclosure requirements in the country in which it is incorporated and resident. In all other respects an offshore corporation can perform practically any function an ordinary corporation can perform. Thus the Belize IBC is an ideal tax planning vehicle which can be used for a wide range of commercial activities.
