Currency Transfers in Caribbean Countries


Caribbean countries have for a long time been a favorite destination for high net worth individuals, corporations and other entities to send their monies. These countries, being tax havens and at the same time offering financial privacy to its clients, are just some of the reasons why they are favored. Caribbean countries were initially highly dependent on donors for economic stimulation, but improvement and strengthening of their banking sector soon replaced aid and grants. This has significantly boosted currency transfers.

A Look at some of the countries with the highest remittances in the Carribean include:

The Cayman Islands.
The Cayman Islands is a notable financial capital in the world. It also is a tax haven, thereby meaning no corporate tax, income tax, inheritance tax or capital gains tax are levied on corporations and individuals. More money will therefore, be transferred to these nations as there are no costs incurred in money transfers. For investors transferring assets to other countries, no charges are incurred including stamp duty.

It offers a lot of benefits including privacy and low costs for individuals wishing to transfer currency to other countries owing to no exchange controls. BVI is a tax haven and does not have any tax treaties with any countries. International businesses are not mandated to pay taxes on profits earned outside the BVI. The only obligation to businesses is a mandatory business license renewed annually by account holders.
