Executive Summary: Botswana has had high growth rates due to sound economic management and its diamond mining industry. It is counted as having one of the least corrupt regimes in the sub-continent. Botswana has relatively low domestic tax rates, applied on a territorial basis, but foreign investors are more likely to be interested in the International Financial Services Centre which focuses on the provision of financial services to international companies and has a preferential tax regime. The IFSC allows generous deductions from income before taxation and exemption from withholding taxes on dividends. There is no capital gains tax in the IFSC. Companies in the IFSC are likely to escape anti-avoidance and CFC legislation in many OECD countries.
