If your IBC is headquartered in Belize, but your income arises from sources outside the country, then you're tax-exempt.

A Belize IBC can be incorporated using any language, and must end with one of the following suffixes: Limited, Corporation, Incorporation, Société Anonyme, Sociedad Anónima or their abbreviations.

Similarly, the name of a Belize LLC must contain words to show the nature of its business structure such as “Limited Liability Company” (abbreviations “L.L.C.”, or “LLC” is acceptable).

A local address in Belize is the initial requirement to register a Belize offshore company. The address works for documentation only, it has no function of mailing.

Belize LLC and IBC difference lies in their ownership and management regulations. Particularly, Belize IBC is owned by a board of directors and has shareholder ownership. By contrast, Belize LLC, much like a combination between a limited liability company and a partnership, includes members, and managers.
