With an average annual economic growth of over eight per cent, the Caribbean is fast becoming an attractive investment destination for entrepreneurs and business investors.
Over the last decade, the region has attracted investors from across the world, who come for its natural beauty, booming tourism industry, and the prospect of lower taxes. Moreover, with many Caribbean countries now offering citizenship by investment programmes, it is the ideal time to invest in the region and enjoy the numerous benefits that come with it. In this write-up, we will be going through some of the top reasons to consider making a business investment in the Caribbean Isles.
There’s no corporate taxation
This is the one reason why more and more investors are turning to the Caribbean. The lack of corporate taxation means that companies can keep more of their profits, which means that they can reinvest in their business and offer better salaries to their employees. Companies
located in countries with high taxes tend to be less profitable than those with low taxes. This is because they have to pay a percentage of their profits to the government, which leaves them with less money for other things like paying employees or investing back into the company.
Home to a wealth of opportunities
The Caribbean offers many business opportunities for investors. Some of these investments include hotels, resorts and restaurant chains. The Caribbean also has a booming tourism industry, with over six million tourists visiting each year from around the world.
Global mobility without restriction
Some of the leading Caribbean countries offering citizenship by investment programs include Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, St Kitts and Nevis, Vanuatu, and Saint Lucia. Each of these countries provides investors citizenship and passport in return for the investment. Passports from Caribbean countries are amongst the most powerful in the globe and their holders can travel to more than 150+ countries any visa-related hassles.
Business-friendly destination with low cost of living
The Caribbean has a reputation for being an affordable and business-friendly destination. The cost of living is much lower than in other parts of the world, with more established economies, making it easier to live in the Caribbean. In addition to being an affordable place to live, the Caribbean also offers several incentives that make it an attractive location for entrepreneurs. One example is its tax-free status on imports and exports for up to five years for businesses located outside the European Union (EU).
Strong domestic demand for goods and services
Domestic demand for goods and services measures how much a country's consumers are willing to spend on domestically produced goods and services. Again, the Caribbean countries stand out in this regard, with strong domestic demand driven by factors such as economic growth, interest rates, inflation rates, unemployment rates, demographics etc.
