Belize International Business Company (IBC) Company Formation

Belize is a popular offshore jurisdiction because of the large number of privacy and tax advantages from which offshore companies incorporated there benefit. Incorporating an IBC in Belize provides extensive confidentiality for the beneficial owners as company registers are not available for public inspection.

  • Company Name

    Company names in Belize 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.

  • Registered Agent

    All Belize IBCs must have a registered agent who is a resident in Belize, and a registered office in Belize where all official company correspondence may be served. We can provide these as part of our Corporate Administration Package.

  • Directors

    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.

  • Shareholders

    Only one shareholder is required and this individual may also be the sole director. Shareholders may be of any nationality and they may be corporate entities. Shareholder Registers are also kept confidential, providing anonymity for company beneficiaries.

  • Share Capital

    There is no minimum share capital.

  • Filing Requirements

    Although all companies are required to maintain accurate accounting records, there is no filing or auditing requirement for a Belize IBC.

  • Timescale

    Once all of the incorporation information has been received it takes only two days to incorporate an IBC in Belize.

  • Fees

    Belize Company Formation – £690

    Company Administration & Registered Office – £420

  • 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.

  • Travel

    Travelling to Belize is not required to incorporate an IBC.
