Why should I form a company in Belize?

Belize (formerly called British Honduras) since independence from Britain in 1981 has had an extremely stable and democratic government.

A Belize Company Formation has become an increasingly popular offshore entity due to the speed in which a company can be incorporated. Most companies in Belize are easily formed within 5 days.

Another reason for the rise in popularity for a Belize company, is that the Managers have one of the highest levels of privacy protection. The information for a Manager and Member are kept confidential and the information on Managers, Members and beneficial owners are not filed with the Belize Company Registrar. Therefore, the information will not be made available to the public and will not be shown on any public documents, giving business owners a high level of confidentiality.

Belize companies are simple to keep in good standing as there are no yearly accounting fees or annual filings.

A Belize company formation attracts many business owners due to its flexibility, only one Manager and one Member is required. The Manager and Member have no requirements to have a physical address in Belize and can reside anywhere in the world. A Belize company has to maintain a registered office address and registered agent in Belize. Most registered agents offer the address as standard.

Due to the flexibility of a Belize Company Formation, it can be incorporated for a number of different reasons and business activities. A Belize Company Formation has features protecting the owners of the company and is not subject to any reporting requirements.

Testimonial

‘Our Belize company was incorporated in no time at all, we were provided with lots of information on what was required to start a company to what was needed on a yearly basis, this support helped us make our decision to go with a Belize Incorporation. We would definitely recommend CFS and use them again for our Offshore Formations.
