Since 1949, we’ve served the businesses of The Commonwealth of The Bahamas, located on an archipelago of 700 islands and some 2,000 rocks and cays. Located just 50 miles south of the state of Florida, USA, The Bahamas spans some 100,000 square miles (260,000 kilometers).
We have offices in Nassau, the capital city located on the island of New Providence, and Freeport, the second largest city located on the Island of Grand Bahama.
The Bahamas’ warm sunshine, white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and friendly people have made it one of the premier tourist destinations in the world, with well over three million visitors each year. Tourism is the country’s number-one industry.
The Bahamas also thrives as a financial centre, with financial services ranking as the second most important industry. Other important industries include construction, agriculture and fishing.
With a democracy dating back to 1729, The Bahamas levies no income taxes. The government’s primary source of revenue comes from import taxes, such as customs duties and stamp taxes. The country has a relatively stable economy and good standard of living and boasts one of the highest per capita incomes in the region. It gained independence from Britain in 1973 but remains a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as head of state. The Queen’s representative in The Bahamas is the governor general.
