The international business corporation (IBC) is the world’s most popular international business entity.
We also create IBCs in the following circumstances:
- As part of an international structure designed to take advantage of tax treaties. Some tax treaties restrict treaty benefits to “corporations.” In that event, an IBC is the preferred entity to use.
- When a country’s laws specifically requires the use of a corporation. If you’re ready to create a Nevis IBC, please download and forward to us a completed LLC Formation Questionnaire.
- When a bank or other financial institution won’t accept investments held in an LLC. Since corporations have a much longer history than LLCs, some banks don’t accept accounts owned by an LLC. In many cases, though, an IBC is acceptable.
- If free transferability of ownership interests — lacking in an LLC — is essential. This might be the case, e.g., if you plan to take on additional investors, or if the entity might be publicly traded in the future.
Otherwise, because of their superior asset protection characteristics, most Fortress clients use Nevis LLCs or trusts to hold an investment portfolio or to operate an international business.
