The Seychelles IBC – Key features, advantages & benefits
The Seychelles International Business Company (based on the classic Bahamas and British Virgin Islands IBC Model), is a tax-free corporation designed for use in all forms of international trading and investment activities.

With no reporting requirements, minimal record-keeping obligations, and unparalleled privacy features the Seychelles IBC has risen in stature to become one of the most sought-after IBCs in the International Financial Services World. Unlike the historically popular Caribbean (and Channel Islands) IBC Centres (most of which, as British Colonial territories, are facing enormous pressure to bring their privacy features and tax rates into line with the rest of Europe) Seychelles is a politically stable and independent republic and has signed NO Tax Information Sharing Treaties.

The Seychelles IBC common uses
(1) As a vehicle to safely and discreetly hold investments including real estate, shares and intellectual property.

(2) For commercial transactions and international trading operations.

(3) As Oil and Commodity trading vehicles.

(4) As a forex, options, futures and/or share trading vehicle.

(5) As an asset protection vehicle.

(6) For import/export activities.

(7) As a vehicle with which to gain access to alternative investments including pre-IPO offerings & private/hedge funds.

(8) As a consultancy and/or personal service business entity.

Unparalleled Privacy
Rather than using a Seychelles IBC for international trade, due to its tax exemption benefits, we, at Eurofinanzza, do recommend its use as an extremely positive tool for confidentiality purposes, for all those investors withing to keep a considerable high level of anonymity.
