Marshall Islands Business, Taxation and Offshore Information

The Marshall Islands are situated nearly midway between Indonesia and Hawaii, and are the easternmost island group in Micronesia.

British naval officer John Marshall gave his name to the islands in the 1700s. The Marshall Islands were under the control of Spain from 1500 to the late 1800s, Germany from 1885 to World War I, and Japan from 1917 to 1944. After the Second World War, the Marshall Islands became a United Nations Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands under United States administration. The Republic of the Marshall Islands gained its independence in 1986, after signing the Compact of Free Association with the United States. The Republic became a full member of the United Nations in 1991.

The Constitution, signed in 1979, is a blend of American and British models of government and the official language is English. The Marshall Islands has enjoyed political stability since its independence as a nation. More »
