Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) are a British overseas territory in the Atlantic Ocean, located to the north of Haiti and Dominican Republic and to the east of Cuba. This is an internally self-governing dependency of the British Crown that consists of the Turks Islands and the Caicos Islands. Head of State is Queen Elizabeth II, represented here by the appointed Governor. Local currency is the US dollar. Official language is English.

The economy of TCI is based on tourism and offshore financial services. Businesses registered in Turks and Caicos Islands are granted tax exemptions. The key offshore sectors are insurance, trust management, and banking. Since 1999 there have been more that 2 thousand insurance licenses issued in TCI to foreign businesses. Offshore activities account for a large percentage of government revenue.

Turks and Caicos Islands are in the “grey area” of jurisdictions that have made commitments to alter their current taxation regimes and apply necessary requirements. The Islands joined the OECD anti-BEPS (base erosion and profit shifting) Inclusive Framework. Today OECD classifies the TCI as “largely compliant” in tax cooperation matters.

Like other offshore jurisdictions, Turks and Caicos Islands have solid confidentiality regulations, established by the Confidential Relationship Ordinance of 1979. Unlawful disclosure of confidential information may result in serious fines and up to three years in prison. Thus, getting access to certain information can be highly problematic.

Business activities in Turks and Caicos Islands are regulated by the Companies Ordinance of 1981, Trusts Ordinance of 1990 and other relevant laws. Local legislation is based on the English law.
