What is an IBC?
Quite simply, an IBC is an International Business Corporation. IBC formations offer you an opportunity to take your business offshore and enjoy some of our fantastic jurisdictions. We have a wide range of jurisdictions in order that we may better fit your individual needs. These jurisdictions currently hold some of the world’s strictest banking laws with regard to privacy and confidentiality. This can provide an unprecedented amount of benefits to the owner of private corporations.
Our offshore locations guarantee political stability, good legal infrastructure which protects your confidentiality, modern financial services such as online banking, easy accessibility and competitive prices.
Some benefits of having an IBC include:
- Offshore banking - Hold offshore bank accounts in an IBC name and bank in complete privacy while utilizing tax-free jurisdictions.
- Asset protection and confidentiality - Protect what your assets. With the current increasing chances of litigation being brought against you and your businesses, its better not to risk your assets; use an IBC to shield your assets. IBC’s can protect you from product liability, malpractice suits if you are in the medical field, creditors and even divorce proceedings.
- Hold titles to properties and other physical assets - IBC’s can be used to hold real estate, valuable collections, precious metals, and shares of any offshore company of your choice.
