Cayman Islands are a British Overseas Territory, located in the Greater Antilles in the Caribbean, to the south of Cuba and northwest of Jamaica. Along with other 15 territories, Cayman Islands are included in the United Nations list of Non-Self-Governing Territories. This is a parliamentary dependency under constitutional monarchy, with Queen Elizabeth II as a head of state and Governor of the Cayman Islands appointed as her representative. Official currency is the Cayman Islands dollar. Official language is English.

Cayman Islands are a major international financial centre, a prominent offshore zone, and a tax haven. Financial services and tourism are the core of local economy. Cayman Islands are also the richest territory in the Caribbean, with the highest income per capita in the region.

The European Union classifies the Cayman Islands as one of the “tax regimes that facilitate offshore structures which attract profits without real economic activity”. As for March 2018, Cayman Islands have made a commitment to revise their tax policies, moving them to the “grey area” of jurisdictions in terms of tax cooperation. OECD describes the Cayman Islands as “largely compliant” in exchange of tax information.

Business activities on the Cayman Islands are regulated by, inter alia, 1995 Companies Act and the 2016 Confidential Information Disclosure Law. The commercial register of the Cayman Islands is managed by the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA).
