Anguilla is one of the ‘cleanest’ financial jurisdictions in the world with two huge advantages: no Corporate Tax and a very efficient and professional cadre of service providers.
Steve Garlick of Anguilla Finance, the organisation whose role is to market and develop Anguilla’s financial services products throughout the world says, “all financially astute people should know where Anguilla is and what it provides… especially in the areas of Company Formation and Management, Trusts, Mutual Funds, Foundations and Captive Insurance.”
If you would like to know more about setting up or doing business in, or internationally from, Anguilla — talk to business consultant Fiona Curtis of Counsel Limited, a fully licensed fiduciary with over 25 years of experience who will give you no-obligation advice.
Fiona suggests when you purchase a home in Anguilla, even if you are not considering renting it out at the moment, you look into forming a company to purchase your property from the get-go to “keep your options open,” so if you change your mind and decide to rent it out at a later date, you can.
It’s also useful for estate planning purposes and asset protection. Having a company in Anguilla also allows you to open a bank account with one of the Local banks.
You can relax knowing your new property will be well protected when you are not in Anguilla, local rental agents provide excellent villa and house management programmes and local insurance agents, Donald Curtis of CIB, Curtis Insurance Brokers and Chantal Piazzi of Island Insurance, have excellent reputations and insure many of the island’s leading properties and homes.
One of the reasons Anguilla bounced back faster than neighbouring islands from super-storm Irma was because these two professionals were on island and processing claims immediately — with pay-outs occurring in record time.
