More information about Gibraltar

Gibraltar Global

Gibraltar is an overseas territory of the UK but is not a member of the European Union. It is located in Europe at the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula. The corporate tax rate in Gibraltar is very low, only 10%, companies have to file accounts and are treated like local businesses. However, we would also like to mention that there do exist some countries which have no taxes due whatsoever. Belize is one of such companies in which no accounts have to be filed and there is a 0% taxation policy.

Some companies such as Apple, Amazon or Starbucks employ citizens of offshore countries to run their divisions within these countries. These companies, of course, are very large and have plenty of money to hire local personnel. For smaller companies with more limited budgets, companies such as OCQ offer nominee company directors and shareholders to allow the management to be maintained offshore all the while the real control of the company remains yours. By doing this, we bypass a much more expensive and costly process which will cost you a lot of time and money. The nominee services are included in our diamond package.

Gibraltar is a key location for foreign operations due to low taxes and a high reputation. The regulations and licenses involved in conducting business in Gibraltar are virtually nonexistent. This allows our clientele to devote their resources toward running the company rather than dealing with regulations, restrictions, permits, and bureaucracy.

Cyprus is another location which is similar to Gibraltar in structure, but which also has the benefit of being within the EU. By being within the EU, certain benefits are obtained such as decreased tariffs on exports to other countries within the Eurozone.

It used to be that offshore operations were often shunned by companies due to difficult regulations and public opinions on the matter. This is no longer true. Many governments had denounced this activity in order to discourage its use. However, today this activity is quite natural and is practiced very frequently. It is quite easy to set up and is a goldmine once it becomes available. Offshore companies can be set up in full compliance with laws and can save you money by allowing reductions in the amount of taxes that are paid.

Cyprus and Gibraltar are both excellent jurisdictions when it comes to tax and wealth planning due to the advantages of low corporate taxes and little bureaucracy. Cyprus does have the additional advantage of being an EU member state. Please note that our fees do not cover accounting and filing fees which you may have to deal with in Gibraltar. We do have connections available to help find accountants in Gibraltar if needed. Alternatively, Belize does not require such account initiation, so we often suggest Belize as the best location to our clients.
