Belize International Business Company (IBC) Company Formation
An International Business Company (IBC) is a limited liability company that conducts its business outside of Belize. As IBCs are exempt from corporate taxation and company registers are not available for public inspection the are the most popular form of incorporation in Belize.
Belize company names may be in any language but they must be unique and must end with Ltd, Corp or Inc. A name may be reserved for 10 days free of charge.
All Belize IBCs must have a registered agent and a registered office in Belize, where all official company correspondence may be served. We can provide this as part of our incorporation service.
A Belize company only requires one person to act as a director. This person may be of any nationality and may be a corporate entity. Director registers are kept confidential and are not available for public inspection.
Only one shareholder is required, who may also be a director. Shareholders may be of any nationality and may be corporate entities. Shareholder register are kept confidential, giving anonymity to company beneficiaries.
There is no minimum share capital.
There are no filing or auditing requirements for a Belizean IBC, although all companies are required to keep accounting records.
The incorporation process takes two days once all information and proof of identity has been received.
Proof of Identity
As part of our due diligence we require proof of identity in the form of a passport copy for all directors and shareholders of the company.
Travelling to Belize is not required to incorporate an IBC.
