Different Types of Business Structures in Belize

The following are the eligible business structures for company registration in Cambodia:

Sole Proprietorship

A sole proprietorship business is managed by one person. This business structure is suitable for small businesses. The sole proprietor is the owner of all business assets and profits and also bears unlimited liability for all his/her debts or liabilities.


A partnership includes two or more persons who share a single business. Partners have an agreement between them that specifies all concerns of partnership like decision making, profit sharing, dispute resolution, etc. In a partnership, a partner’s liability is closely tied to the actions of other partners.

Limited Liability Company (LLC)

An LLC is a favourable business structure for entrepreneurs who want to combine the benefits of a limited company and partnership. This business structure stands out as the members are not personally liable for the debts or obligations of the company other than the existence of legal agreements among parties.

International Business Company

An International Business Company (IBC) is a private company. It is set up in compliance with the laws of the jurisdiction. It is the most prevalent type of business entity for foreigners to do business overseas. Belize IBC is an ideal structure as it brings businesses a lot of great benefits, a major benefit being the tax exemptions from any form of local tax in Belize and minimal compliance requirements. Any IBC company enjoys such great advantages only when the company doesn’t conduct any business activity within the territory of Belize.

Public Investment Company

A public investment company is regulated under the International Business Companies Act (Part XI). This structure enjoys tax benefits upon meeting the specific requirements concerning its Net and Gross tangible assets, listed shares, shareholder structures, and other requirements as prescribed by the corresponding laws.


Belize Offshore Trust is widely opted for due to its flexibility and best asset protection. A Trust in Belize is formed under the Belize Trust Act. Belize has made further advancements to its laws of trusts which commenced with the Belize Trust Act 1992. Key advantages of using a Belize Trust are its asset protection, tax minimization, confidentiality (Trust Deed is not made publicly available), flexibility, etc.
