About the Seychelles

Seychelles is an independent Republic located in the Western Indian Ocean with proximity to several continents. It has developed to be a sophisticated offshore jurisdiction, ideally placed to offer offshore structures to those seeking tax efficiency for their business operations.

Seychelles IBC (International Business Companies)

The IBC is the most popular type of offshore corporation available in the Seychelles. It’s based on the one of BVI, a corporation designed to engage in most international business activities. However it does offer you more flexibility than a corporation registered in a British Dependent Territory. These territories are now days being brought under EU legislation. Seychelles is independent and that is one of the key reasons why it is one of our preferred jurisdictions.
