Executive Summary: Like many other Latin American and Caribbean countries, Belize has had to counter the economic problems caused by reduced access to privileged markets for sugar and bananas, but it has suffered from inadequate governance. Lately there has been some improvement and the government is now encouraging foreign investment in a more even-handed way. Domestic taxes are moderate, with a small turnover-based tax in addition to 25% corporation tax. There is a variety of low-tax offshore schemes including IBC legislation, a modern trusts law and an array of free zones and investment incentive schemes. Telecommunications are state-of-the-art but too expensive due to a monopoly that has held back development. Air and sea communications are both good.
