Madeira: Offshore Legal and Tax Regimes
This page was last updated on 11 Oct 2018.
Most offshore activity in Madeira takes place in and around the International Business Centre, which comprises the Free Trade Zone, and its associated services, together with financial institutions and the Shipping Registry. Offshore entities use conventional corporate forms, or an offshore trust, which exists only in the Free Trade Zone. The holding company exists independently of the zone, but still uses conventional corporate forms.
