    Tax benefits of a Bahamas offshore company formation

    The Bahamas is one of the most popular choices for those looking for an offshore company in the Caribbean with all the tax-free benefits. A Bahamian International Business Company (IBC) is preferred by many non-resident companies due to the Bahamas’ established banking sector, good financial privacy and excellent reputation as a location for offshore banking.

    Having now agreed to implement the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) exchange of information, and signed over 12 tax information exchange agreements, the Bahamas has also moved onto the OECD’s white list.

    Tax liability of Bahamas offshore companies

    Bahamas is a tax-free haven, making it one of the top choices in the Caribbean for offshore company registrations. For business conducted outside of the Bahamas by a Bahamas IBC or trust there is:

    • Zero income tax
    • Zero capital gains tax
    • Zero inheritance tax
    • Zero sales tax
