Dominica Offshore Companies Overview

Legislation governing the Dominica Company was passed in June 1996. Though based on the standard IBC protocol, the act provides for generous tax savings by way of a 20 year — 100% tax free regime. Dominica companies do not pay capital gains tax, inheritance tax or stamp duties on the revenue of the offshore company.

The legislation is progressive in that it is reviewed and amended periodically to introduce more attractive features ensuring that the Dominica Offshore company meets investor’s needs.

We offer a nominee shareholder free of charge in our Dominica IBC packages. A nominee officer is a person designated by the agent and whose name appears on the incorporation documents as the shareholder and/or the directors. This is an additional service, but when used, the privacy and confidentiality is further increased since: upon doing any business in the company name, the directors of the company are not related to the actual beneficial owner.
