The Seychelles IBC is a zero-tax vehicle, which can do business in any part of the world except the Seychelles. The disclosure, to us, of beneficial owners is a requirement. An IBC is permitted to undertake a wide range of business but may not conduct banking, insurance or act as a trustee of a financial services business. IBC Companies cannot access Seychelles' network of Double Tax Avoidance Treaties.
Unlike the IBC, the Seychelles CSL may carry on business inside as well as outside the Seychelles. The CSL entity is a Seychelles domestic company (under Companies Act 1972), which is granted a special license under Companies (Special Licenses) Act, 2003. The company is considered to be a valuable tax planning vehicle as it enjoys access to Seychelles's double tax treaties, and has broad appeal as an international holding company, a service company or a headquarters company. It has both some measure of confidentiality and low tax status (1.5%), the latter being applicable on its worldwide income. It is also exempted from withholding tax on dividends, interest and royalties as well as stamp duty on property transfers, share transfers and other business transactions.
