    Background to Belize Company Registration

    Shares in Belize offshore companies

    With Belize offshore companies, there is no minimum share capital but it is customary to have an authorised share capital of US$ 50,000. The minimum issued capital may be one share of par value or one share of no par value. Preference shares, bearer shares, registered shares, shares of no par value, redeemable shares and shares with or without voting rights are all permitted.

    If you’d like to keep the ownership of your shares private, bearer shares are the ideal solution because you don’t have to disclose your shareholding to anyone in Belize. Ownership of the shares passes by a simple physical transfer.

    Anonymity and disclosure in Belize offshore companies

    Belize is known for its excellent privacy. Offshore Belize companies are not required to disclose the names of directors and beneficial owners to the registration authorities. There is also no requirement to prepare and file annual accounts, although companies are required to keep financial records to reflect the company’s financial position.

    The Republic of Ireland Offshore Companies and their Tax Liability

    The Republic of Ireland has one of the lowest rates of corporation tax in the EU, just behind the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, which currently have a 0% rate, and Cyprus and some Eastern European countries which have a 10% corporation tax rate. It is one of the lowest in any developed economy in the world. So it's not surprising that Ireland's offshore sector has boomed. Ireland is on the OECD 'white list' and has numerous exchanges of information agreements for tax purposes. Ireland has been a very popular alternative 'offshore' choice for many multinationals which have transferred some of their operations to Irish companies to reduce their overall effective tax rate. Ireland therefore offers excellent tax-saving opportunities at both the corporate and personal level.

    Double Taxation Agreements

    Ireland has a very extensive network of double tax agreements in force. The treaty countries include: Albania, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong (June 2010), Italy, Israel, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Morocco (June 2010) Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, Portugal, Russian Federation, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Arab Emirates (July 2010) USA, United Kingdom.
