IBC Formation

Global Corporate Services, Inc. has recently aligned itself with a group of attorneys who have set up the ability to create an IBC in the jurisdiction of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

What is an IBC?

An IBC is an International Business Corporation. Jurisdictions where IBC's are formed allow for rapid incorporation at

    • Low cost
  • Low or no taxation
  • Minimal reporting requirements
  • Some offshore jurisdictions allow nominee directors and officers

Considering the above advantages, an IBC is often preferred over a domestic corporation. IBC's are commonly used for new businesses, new partners, commercialization of new technology, and integrated estate planning. IBC's are generally not appropriate for conducting business which requires a physical location in another jurisdiction.

What is our Goal?

Our goal is to create your business structure with the most cost-effective and legally beneficial parameters. We form companies in St. Vincent and the Grenadines as well as other jurisdictions and are ready to find the location that best suits your needs.

We offer assistance in offshore structure consulting, business and commercial law, banking and finance and legal services as requested by our clients through local or US attorneys.
