IBCs income accrued offshore, from our research, and this is not personal advice, are 20-year tax-exempted. This ranks Dominica as 1st when compared to corp. taxation rate internationally. An annual Government fee may apply.

Nominee shareholders and directors are allowed. It may not be required a secretary. Minimum capital required is US$ 100, shares may be in any currency, and may be issued with par or non-par value, and as bearer or registered form.
Details of shareholders, directors and beneficiaries are not publicly disclosed. There is no requirement to prepare or file accounts or financial statements, or to appoint an auditor.
Thin capitalisation rules are not in play. Thin capitalisation refers to any type of requirements on companies' debt-to-asset ratios. Dividends paid or received by an IBC are not subject to taxation. Dividends are distributions of earnings of a legal entity, voted by the board of directors, to a class of its shareholders. Dividends can be issued as cash payments, shares of stock, or other property. Capital Gains are exempted of taxes. A capital gains tax is levied on the profits that a corporation or natural person realizes when he or she sells sells a capital asset for a price that is higher than the purchase price.

IBCs are not subject to withholding taxes. This means that payments on dividends, interests, royalties or fees to non-residents are not subject to taxation.
