Key notes for IBCs in relation to Belize Economic Substance Requirements and Tax Matters

The Economic Substance Act of Belize took effect on 11 October 2019. The issuance of this Act is to prevent entities from taking advantage of Belize corporate structures to earn profits but not representing the real economic situation in Belize.
