For the past few decades, successive governments in Barbados have diligently constructed a framework of legislation designed to encourage foreign investment and establish the island as a leading international business centre in the Caribbean.
Barbados is a highly respected domicile for such entities as international insurance companies, international business companies, international banks, societies with restricted liabilities, international trusts and mutual funds.
Throughout the process of enacting and refining the laws governing international business, the country has rigorously safeguarded its reputation for integrity, responding quickly to such international concerns as money laundering and lack of transparency. While offering a low-tax environment to international businesses, Barbados has chosen to establish a high level of transparency and a cooperative approach to information sharing with tax authorities in other countries.
