Vanuatu: citizenship by investment, offshore banks, and foreign companies

In this section, the readers of InternationalWealth.info portal can learn about the tax-free jurisdiction of Vanuatu. You can register a foreign company, establish a bank, or acquire economic citizenship within a short period in this country.

In the good old times before the automatic exchange of fiscal information was enforced, Vanuatu positioned itself as zero-tax jurisdiction that did not require the submission of any fiscal reports. For dozens of years Vanuatu was considered an offshore jurisdiction that imposed no rules at all.

Naturally, this sort of reputation attracted not only lovers of privacy but also numerous cheats. Unfortunately, some of these cheats were so greedy that they attracted the attention of Australian and New Zealand police. In the times now forgotten, Americans used the Caymans as a tax haven while Australians and New Zealanders used Vanuatu for the same purposes.

However, at the beginning of 1998, New Zealand forced Vanuatu to introduce the VAT that was equal to the VAT in New Zealand. At the same time, over the years the NZ VAT rate has increased considerably, while it still stays at 12.5% in Vanuatu. Besides, there is no corporate tax in the country while this applies to both domestic and foreign companies. Corporations must keep financial records in Vanuatu as well as in any other offshore jurisdiction. As things stand for now, these records do not have to be submitted to the tax authorities though.
