Republic of Kiribati is a sovereign state in the Pacific Ocean. Kiribati comprises numerous islands spread over 3,5 million square kilometres. Kiribati gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1979 and became a member state of the Commonwealth of Nations. Kiribati is a unitary parliamentary republic with a president as a head of state. Local currency is the Australian dollar. Official languages are English and Gilbertese (also known as the Kiribati language). Kiribati is the member of the United Nations, International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the Pacific Islands Forum.

Kiribati is one of the poorest countries in the world. Kiribati’s economic growth is impeded by the lack of natural resources, remote location from world markets, high transportation costs, vulnerability to natural disasters, and extreme dispersion of the islands thousands of kilometres across the ocean. Kiribati mostly relies on revenue from fishing licenses and foreign aid. Most labour force is employed in service sector.

Kiribati is not considered an offshore jurisdiction or a tax haven. Business activities in Kiribati are regulated by the Companies Ordinance, 1988 Registration of Business Names Act, and 1988 Moneylenders’ Act. Legislation of Kiribati is based on the English law.
