The Bahamas is one of the world's most popular tax-free havens and incentives offered to investors attract millions of dollars of investment each year. There are no taxes levied on capital gains, withholding, profit remittance, corporate earnings, personal income, sales, inheritance, dividends, royalties, payroll and/or interest. Investors are further attracted to the stability of the economy, which is steadied by the strong value of the Bahamian dollar, pegged to the US dollar on a 1:1 ratio.

The International Persons Landholding Act, passed in 1993, offers a seductive mix of incentives and privileges to foreign prospective homebuyers in the Bahamas. Government approval is no longer required for non-Bahamians to purchase residential property of less than five acres, and residency can be granted to non-Bahamian homeowners and investors. Establishing residency in the Bahamas has significant tax advantages for citizens of countries with high personal and corporate income taxes, as well as inheritance tax.
