Our company offers formation of Limited Liability Companies in Belize. We consider this legal entity very suitable for asset protection and tax planning of our clients.
Major advantages of Belize LLC:
Limited Liability Company (LLC) is formed under the International Limited Liability Companies Act adopted in November 2011.
LLC name must include the words “limited liability company” or the abbreviation “LLC”, or “L.L.C.”
The name of a limited liability company must be in Roman script. However, LLC is allowed to use an alternative name in any other script under the condition that it represents an accurate translation of the name registered in Roman script and the alternative name is submitted to the Registrar at the time of formation. LLC may use its alternative name in any dealings with third parties
Office Address and Local Agent
Belize registered office address and registered agent are mandatory.
Our company is a registered agent in Belize and our fess includes Belize registered office address and registered agent for the current year, when company is formed.
Any individual or legal entity resident of any country may become a member of LLC.
A minimum of one member is required.
For clients, who would like to have an additional layer of privacy protection, our company offers nominee member service.
Any individual or legal entity, who is a resident of any country may be appointed as a manager of Belize offshore LLC.
A minimum of one member is required.
If you need a nominee manager, our company is able to provide nominee service. However, in most cases it's preferable to be appointed as a manager of your own Belize LLC. It simplifies dealing with banks, suppliers and customers and makes the annual renewal fee cheaper.
Belize LLC is exempt from all local taxes including income tax, capital gain tax, dividend tax, and stamp duty on transfer of property.
Information about all persons connected to Belize LLC is completely private.
The Articles of Organization is the only document filed with the Belize Registrar. This documents does not include any information about corporate members, managers and beneficial owners. It lists only name of the LLC, Belize registered agent and Belize registered office address.
Our company offers Nominee services, as an extra layer of privacy protection.
Accounting and Audit Requirements
There are no statutory requirements of audit for Belize limited liability companies.
In October 2013 Belize enacted the Accounting Records (Maintenance) Act. According to the Act all LLCs are required to maintain accounting records and keep them in any place within or outside of Belize as may be determined by the managers.
There is no requirement to file tax returns with the Belize tax authority or any other Belize government organization. As a result, your Belize company will get a great advantage - on one side the requirement to keep accounting records creates onshore image for the company, but on other side the company is not required to file tax returns and pay taxes in Belize, which in fact preserves its offshore essentual nature.
Annual General Meeting
Annual meetings are not required.
Time Required for Formation of Belize LLC
Formation of LLC takes one to two business days. Obtaining of paperwork from the Registry, preparation of all internal documents and Apostille legalization takes up to 5 business days.
We form Belize LLCs and keep them in our office as shelf companies for convenience of our clients. All shelf companies do not have any previous business transactions. When a client buys a shelf company of any age, he may be absolutely confident that he is the first owner of it.
Shelf companies are available immediately. If the documents are required legalization with Apostille, it usually takes 1 to 3 business days. To select a shelf company please visit our Shelf Company List.
