Anguilla Offshore Company

About Anguilla

Anguilla is a British territory situated in the far north of the Leeward Islands in the Lesser Antilles, sitting east of the Virgin Islands and north of Saint Martin. The total area of the territory is 35 square miles, or 90 km2 with an approximate population size of 13,500.

Anguilla has become a popular tax haven, having no capital gains, estate, profit or other types of taxation on either individuals or corporations that generate income offshore. All offshore entities which have been incorporated in Anguilla are also exempt from paying any stamp duty.

Anguilla’s financial laws strictly protect the privacy of offshore bank accounts and business entities. Because of the Offshore Banking Act of 2005, no bank employee or agent may disclose any financial information without the express consent of the account holder.

As it is regulated by the English Common Law system, Anguilla’s offshore laws allow for minimal local reporting requirements. Anguilla’s regulations have been designed to attract international investors, providing offshore companies the freedom to move and conduct business free from complicated paperwork and auditing practices, adding another layer of confidentiality and privacy to an already outstanding offshore environment.
