Liberia Business, Taxation and Offshore Information

Liberia, on the west coast of Africa, has an area of 99,067 sq km. A low coastal belt is backed by gently undulating forested plateau; then in the north is a mountain region which includes Mount Nimba at 1,752m. The climate is tropical, hot and humid. The capital is Monrovia, which together with the newer port of Buchanan are amongst the most modern ports on the west coast of Africa. There are direct scheduled flights from both Europe and the US to Roberts International Airport on the outskirts of Monrovia.

The foundation and initial colonization of Liberia in the 1820s resulted from a number of initiatives in which enslaved African Americans returned to Africa in an eventually successful attempt to create a republic on libertarian lines. By 1840 a number of Liberian colonies had united in a Commonwealth. The Liberian settlers were relatively few in number, and invited participation in their economy from indigenous African tribes. Eventually these migrants outnumbered the colonists; by now, descendants of the original settlers make up no more than 5% of the total population of nearly 3.9m (July 2011 est). More »
