Nominee Directors in Belize

Nominee Directors in Belize

The nominee directors in Belize are appointed individuals or corporations, unrelated to the actual beneficial owner of the Belize company. This is a preferred incorporation method for the beneficial owner of offshore companies in Belize who want to maintain the highest degree of anonymity. 

Our Belize company formation agents are able to provide complete nominee director services in the country.

The advantages of the nominee director

The Belize nominee director is a third-party director who is empowered to perform various tasks related to this position, while the actual beneficial owner of the company remains anonymous.

This is a practice used by those offshore company owners who wish to maintain complete confidentiality. Investors who open a company in Belize and appoint a nominee director do not have a direct relationship between themselves and the offshore company. The beneficial owner can stipulate the actual degree of control and involvement of the nominee director, according to the special purpose of the IBC or the particular international services it provides from Belize.

Entrepreneurs who choose to operate their company using an appointed third-party director can still retain their signature right on the Belize offshore account.

The Belize International Business Company is a business form suitable for all those who want to open an offshore company in Belize. It benefits from no local taxation and it can be incorporated having only one director.

Our Belize offshore company formation consultants can provide complete nominee director services if you decide to open an IBC in Belize and prefer this degree of confidentiality. Our agents will handle all of the needed appointment steps, complete with drawing up and signing a power of attorney, for the purpose of empowering the nominee directors as per your instructions. 

A nominee director in Belize can obtain permanent Belizean residency after a minimum period of lawful residence in the country of at least one year. Other conditions apply for his application, such as to not have left the country for more than a fixed number of days, or for being able to show proof of financial stability. Our team can give you more details. 

Foreign company directors who have been staying in the country as permanent residents for at least five years can consider their option to apply for Belizean citizenship, provided that they meet all the criteria for acquiring this status. One of the conditions is related to the time spent outside the country, which cannot be longer than thirty consecutive days in most cases.

If immigration to Belize is something that interests those appointed as nominee directors, our agents are able to discuss the options that apply in their case according to nationality, financial stability, and the duration of their lawful stay in Belize prior to the residency application. As needed, we will also provide details on matters such as citizenship or Belizean passoports.
