Benefits to setting up a trust in Belize, advantages to establish an offshore trust 

Start-up a trust in Belize: a relative newcomer in international financial services, Belize, an English-speaking country in Central America, has been diversifying its economy since gaining its independence from Britain in 1981. Its prominence in the business world began in earnest in 1990, when the Companies Act was passed.

A location with a history of stability: Belize is an increasingly popular location for off-shore companies registration. A major factor influencing this boom is its history of political stability and its continued stable government today. Excellent telecommunications and transport links: Belize is an ideal location, being English-speaking and boasting excellent telecommunications, services and transport links. It is also a thriving holiday destination, and has an international airport.

Establish a trust in Belize - settlor, beneficiaries and trustees can be of any nationality: should you wish to send out your current business staff to Belize to oversee the launch, you will legally be able to do so. Coddan Formations Agency can ease the transition of setting-up a trust, making you the owner of an established trust registered in Belize, with your existing representatives there from the outset.

Ease of handling your capital: if you set-up your trust in Belize, there is no minimum paid-up investment requirement. In addition, any investment you pay up can be in any currency.

Setting Up an Off-Shore Trust in Belize

When setting up an offshore trust, Belize is often a popular location since the process of establishing the trust is relatively straightforward. Belize is situated in Central America and the language spoken there is English. In fact, it only became independent from the UK in 1981.

Why create a trust in Belize?

The conditions for both tax planning and asset protection in Belize are favourable in comparison to other countries. The law in relation to trusts is modern and supports financial services internationally. This is because it has only relatively recently become involved in this sector.

In Belize you can create a trust that will both secure your own wealth and provide financial security for your family in the future. Additionally, you don’t need a minimum amount to set up a trust in Belize and there is no allowance for people to claim inheritance tax from property held in trust in Belize.

Requirements for the establishment of a trust: a trust can only be effective in Belize if there is a trustee, beneficiary, settlor and protector. If the trust is in favour of a charity, there needs to be at least four trustees. In any other trust, there only needs to be one trustee.

Roles of the parties: a trustee always need to be an adult who has full capacity. They are responsible for the administration of the trust on behalf of the beneficiaries. The Role of the settlor is in the creation of the trust and the transfer of assets into it. The protector is responsible for monitoring the trust, ensuring that the trustees comply with the deed of trust and manage it satisfactorily.

Other legal requirements: according to the law of the country, every trust that is governed under the law of Belize needs to have an agent who lives in Belize. The information required is relatively limited, which is one of the reasons why so many people set up a trust there.

The trust name, date the trust is settled and the names of both the trustee and the trust agent need to be disclosed to the Belize registry of trusts. Any other information only needs to be given to the agent and does not need to be made public.
