    Hey i'm currently in Mexico city, Belize is not that far.

    I would like to know if it's easy to open a company in Belize in person (how long it's take, how much it cost), or if it's better to buy it on internet.

    I'm thinking use this website http://www.belize-offshore.info/

    what do you think ? Do you know a good company who can do it properly ? Thanks !

    It can be done remotely, with document scans only within a few days. A lot of cheap internet providers give you slow service, which is a problem. I've tested out most of them, so I know. The cost can even be just a few hundred dollars, but then they leave out all documents needed to open an offshore bank account. Belize is a great choice, and I personally help people with this all the time.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Well, if you are that close to Belize and this isn't just a way to spam "your service" then why you don't just lookup a Agent located in Belize, walk into his office and get the deal done! It is some of the most simple things to get a Belize, Seychelles, BVI and similar jurisdiction company!

    You need a valid passport and a utility bill, that's it done deal!

    No reason to go there, if you can just scan your documents. That makes no sense.

    No of course there is no reason to go there, but if he has the option I would recommend to do so, rather than find some sort of Internet provider you can't look into the eyes and only communicate by e-mail and skype with! All documents can be scanned and send by e-mail to any agent who offers Belize incorporation. But most often if you find the right Agent they will be able to offer you much more than that!

    It totally depends on what you want to do ;) If it's for asset protection, or running a business by only receiving wire transfers, then it's a great choice. But for getting really good merchant accounts, nope.

    Why exactly isn't it safe? Having an offshore company as nothing to do with evading taxes, unless that is what you are trying to do

    The same reason why 90% of old offshore countries aren't safe anymore.And knowing the long timeframe which you can be charged by law makes it a high risk.

    Vrill, you stated...

    Just to clarify, offshore only becomes an issue when one intends on skirting IRS laws. Typically, people who use offshore accounts do so for the tax advantages. Consequently, they have CPAs/accountants/tax lawyers to set up and navigate foreign laws and IRS laws.

    People who are attempting to evade, elude and/or skirt the long hand of the IRS usually don't employ the required CPAs/accountants/tax lawyers and will eventually get caught in 90% of the cases.

    That stated, in Belize, you are looking at an LDC, a Limited Duration Company, which is basically the equivalent of the American LLC Limited Liability corporation. Below are two pages that might answer most of your questions.

    Code:
    http://www.offshorecompany.com/company/belize.asp
    Code:
    http://www.offshorecorporation.org/belize-corporation/
    Keep in mind, I am not vouching for any of the above companies; I only provided them as information resources.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks, i'm not american so i think the problem is less. If i can avoid tax i will be happy, because i don't know how it work...

    I'm french citizen but i live outside my country since 2010. So i believe if i make business with french customer i need to pay taxes ? I don't even know of it work really :D Anyway...

    What is the best choise ? Panama or Belize ?

    Like you said it seem very easy to open an company in belize but i still scare to be simply scammed lol, you have to send something like 2000$ + 1000$ bank account deposit. It good amount to be scam i believe.

    for 3000$ i can go myself in belize, but i dont know how the stuff work. If their is agent everywhere it can be good.

    Company offshore is a field i just don't understand, it seem dark and hard to get real information, since rules always change.

    Thanks all your advice i will look at this more closely, but like everything else i think you have to go straigh sometime and not think too much, the more i think about open a offshore the more it seems difficult :D

    There is no real problem, unless you purposefully evade taxes.

    But with the right planning, and you are ok with travelling, it is possible to avoid most of your taxes.

    You guys seem to have no clue for what purpose offshore is being used and i'm not talking about taxes.
    Belize isnt the safe heaven against us jurisdiction anymore.
