Vanuatu Offshore – General Information

When it comes to offshore businesses and tax havens, Vanuatu ranks among the most popular. In fact, it features amongst the most sought out locations such as the BVI, Bermuda, Cayman Islands and Jersey. The group of 80 islands in the South Pacific Ocean made it to the international “white list” members of countries by OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) in June 2011. Investors of Vanuatu International Companies (VIC) are drawn by the flexible system created by the tax laws in this offshore financial centre.

Benefits of Vanuatu Company Registration for International Business

What advantages make Vanuatu an attractive place for international businesses?

1. Vanuatu IBC (International Business Companies) have been exempt from taxes for over 2 decades. The IBCs were incorporated by the Vanuatu International Companies Act in 1992. This legislation is very similar to other IBC laws around the world. The government is keen in protecting this tax haven industry since as of 2015 it provided about 15% of Vanuatu’s GDP.

2. Exempt and International Companies don’t pay domestic taxes from their net chargeable profits. The International Companies Act exempts your international business and shareholders from business licence fees, tax on income, capital gains and also stamp duty.

3. The directors can have their meetings whenever, and wherever they choose, and in whichever manner they find necessary or desirable. The same case applies when planning for shareholders meetings. You will not be required to hold annual general meetings. Neither will you need to file annual returns.

4. In fact, there are no requirements describing the manner in which the books and the records of accounts are to be kept. Furthermore, your Vanuatu Company can keep its accounts, minutes, records, or register in any location in the world. The records are to be kept as you deem necessary to reflect the financial position of the company. In addition, you are not required to appoint an auditor.

5. There is ease of operation. When registering, your business only requires to have one director. Hence, you can go it solo if you wish. The Vanuatu IBC can have a natural or legal person as director. This person can be of any nationality. In addition, you only need one shareholder.

6. Your privacy is paramount. Reporting requirements are minimized. The only public information the Vanuatu IBC will have is its registered agent name and office address, its constitution, and any charges against its assets. Access to information is also restricted.

7. There is flexibility in setting up the Vanuatu company. There isn’t a minimum or maximum amount of share capital required. Furthermore, your business’ capital can be in any currency or amount. Vanuatu also has no exchange controls.

All these factors are what make it more than worthwhile to register a Vanuatu company for your international business.
