Since the 1990′s, the government of Belize has established an international banking system for non-citizens. Depositors enjoy tax advantages and other benefits. Online accounts can often be set up in three days or less, and the arrangements can be made from the comfort of one’s home. The government of Belize has stringent requirements for these international banks, including the maintenance of 24-percent liquidity, a standard higher than that found in the U.S. banking system. Trusts can now also be arranged through these banks. These trusts can safely protect the assets of expats and visitors from entities in other jurisdictions.

Before individuals are convinced to visit a new destination, invest in real estate or place money in offshore funds, they want to be sure that the nation has a solid infrastructure and a stable economy. Thankfully, Belize has both. The tourism industry is a large portion of the economy, and there are no signs that it will begin to slow at all. Banking is also an important part of the puzzle, and the favorable taxation rates on investments draw billions of dollars into the nation’s financial institutions each year. There are also a number of exports that help to bring in cash to the country.
