Belize Offshore Corporations

Belize Offshore Corporation

POLS can form a Belize Offshore Corporation through our exclusive relationship with our correspondent Belize law firm.

Belize is not a Caribbean Island. It is a former British colony called British Honduras and is a Central American country on the Caribbean coast.

In 1990, Belize enacted a new law allowing the creation of anonymously owned offshore corporations along with bank account secrecy. These are the perfect ingredients for global asset protection through offshore corporations.

Benefits of a Belize Offshore Corporation

1. The offshore corporation’s income is Tax Free no matter where the income is earned. There are No Tax Treaties with other countries so other governments cannot gain access to Belize Offshore Corporation records.

2. Privacy is guaranteed because the names of the directors and shareholders of the offshore corporation are not filed with the government. The records of the shareholders can only be seen by other shareholders. The Belize government only has records of the offshore corporation’s Articles of Incorporation. There are no annual tax returns or any auditing of the offshore corporation books. Anonymous Bearer Shares can be used by Belize offshore corporations.

3. Global Asset Protection against frivolous lawsuits.

4. Global Banking as Belize Offshore Corporations can open bank accounts anywhere in the world.

5. Flexibility for the offshore corporation with minimum capital requirement, with no required meetings, no local directors or officers, meetings by shareholders or directors can be conducted anywhere and with using proxy, only one director and one shareholder is required who does not have to be a Belize resident.
