The Bahamas is a 100’000 square-mile archipelago made up of 700 islands extending over 500 miles into the Atlantic Ocean from southeast Florida. The Bahamas is an English-speaking country and its population is concentrated in its capital city of Nassau on the island of New Providence. The current population exceeds 300’000 people.
The Bahamas has been a parliamentary democracy for more than two hundred and fifty years and has enjoyed political and social stability since its independence in 1973. English Common Law is the basis of the Bahamian judicial system, which is independent of the political process. This independence and Bahamian sovereignty provide a unique, attractive jurisdiction in which to conduct business.
The economy of the Bahamas is driven mainly by tourism, which accounts for approximately 55% of the gross domestic product. The second pillar of the economy is the traditional well-developed financial services industry.

The Bahamas can count on a skilled workforce of accountants, lawyers, bankers, trustees and investment managers. It has been offering financial services to the international community for over 60 years including private banking, establishment of trusts, company formation, mutual funds administration, insurance services and shipping registry.

On December 29, 2000, the Government of The Bahamas enacted a series of new laws that completely reshaped the financial sector and strengthened the regulatory structure. The Bahamas has preserved its crucial tax neutrality advantage and its commitment to client confidentiality.

The country is now positioned to stay at the forefront of international financial services providers.

The Bahamas has no income, inheritance, capital gains or corporate tax.
