Belize

Even though Belize is a young and small country, it is in many ways uncommon for the region, and its financial sector enjoyed a steady growth, especially in the early 2000s. We have been working here for many years and acquired all the necessary skills and knowledge to assist you with compliance services ranging from full support to specific tasks such as preparing for registered agent application, submitting annual reports to IFSC, or compliance questionnaires for the National Risk Assessment. For additional details and more available services please refer to the section Services of this website.
