Saint Kitts: Types of Company
Exempt Private Company
An exempt private company is a private company (as above), which pays no income, capital gains, withholding, or stamp taxes as long as it conducts business exclusively with persons who are not resident in the Federation.
An annual fee of USD200 is payable to the government on filing of the annual return. Although company details are kept on the public register, inspection of the register by persons who are not members or officers of the company is not permitted.
The law makes clear that an exempt company does not lose its tax waivers because of certain activities within the Federation including signing contracts or concluding arrangements for employing residents, purchasing goods and services, and exercising other powers to carry on its business such as holding directors' and members' meetings, transacting banking and reinsurance business, and conducting securities transactions or serving as adviser to Federation residents who enjoy exempt status.
