Grenada is an island country in the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean, located between Saint Vincent and the Grenadines to the north and Venezuela to the south. Grenada gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1974, and became an independent realm within the Commonwealth of Nations. Queen Elizabeth II is the head of state. Her representative here is the Governor-General. Local currency is the East Caribbean dollar. Official language is English.
About 70% of local GDP is taken up by the services sector. Grenada provides favourable conditions for registration of International Business Companies – they gain the right for full tax exemption for 20 years. Incorporation of companies is also a relatively quick and simple process, but companies usually have to register an address in Grenada. Grenada’s legislation also guarantees a high level of privacy that implies non-disclosure of information concerning directors and shareholders (unless a company itself provides financial services).
Grenada used to be in the EU black list of non-cooperative jurisdictions. It was removed from there after committing to abolishing the existing tax regime. OECD puts Grenada into the category of “largely compliant” jurisdictions in tax cooperation matters.
Main types of businesses in Grenada
- International Business Company – the most common type of an offshore company
