Nevis Business, Taxation and Offshore Information

Nevis Business, Taxation and Offshore Information

Nevis is in the Caribbean Sea, about one-third of the way from Puerto Rico to Trinidad and Tobago. The climate is tropical, tempered by constant sea breezes and there is little seasonal temperature variation. The rainy season is from May to November. There can be hurricanes between July and October.

The majority of the population occupies the capital of Charlestown. Nevis’s Newcastle Airport is only capable of handling light aircraft. Long-haul flights from the US and Europe connect to Nevis via St Kitts. There is a regular ferry service between the two islands.

Nevis was settled by the British in 1628 and the federation of St. Kitts and Nevis finally attained full political independence within the Commonwealth in 1983. Nevis has acquired autonomy within the Federation, together with its own Legislature and Cabinet. A 1998 referendum to separate from St. Kitts fell short of the two-thirds majority needed. The independence issue hasn't gone away, but there have since been signs of rapprochement between the two islands under the leadership of Joseph Parry of the Nevis Reformation Party. More »
