Typical and very popular tax haven on the east coast of Central America. Companies do not pay any tax on income from anywhere in the world and are not obliged to submit a financial statement to the office. Establishing a company is easy and fast - in most cases it does not take more than 1 - 2 days.
A Belize offshore company must have at least one director who may be of any nationality. If you do not want to be the company director for any reason, you can use the services of a nominee director.
Shares can be registered or anonymous bearer shares. With bearer shares, the originals of the share certificates must be in the custody of the registration agent. A company with bearer shares can be used for anonymously holding shares in other (e.g. British or American) companies. The disadvantage of bearer shares is the problem of opening a bank account - most banks refuse to open an account. If a bank account is a necessity but you do not want to appear in the company as a shareholder, you can use the services of a nominee shareholder.
In addition to Belize, bearer shares are only permitted in the Marshall Islands (without restriction), BVI and Panama (the share certificates must be deposited with the registration agent).
The costs of establishing a Belize offshore company, including a registered office, a registration agent, standard company documents verified by a notary and apostille, share certificates, stamp and delivery by courier are EUR 1,200.
The fee for additional years (registered office, registration agent, flat tax) is EUR 700.
Optional services to keep directors and shareholders anonymous:
Nominee director - natural person EUR 500 a year (including one general Power of attorney verified by a Notary with Apostille and an undated resignation)
Nominee shareholder - corporate body EUR 500 a year (including a Declaration of Trust, verified by a Notary with Apostille)
Custody of bearer shares EUR 400 a year.
