Tax Neutrality

Despite popular misconceptions, the Cayman Islands are not a tax haven – they are “tax neutral”. This means that residents of the Cayman Islands do not pay income tax, wealth tax or capital gains tax! Indirect taxation is the main form of income for the government, which includes clothing, alcohol and cigarettes. It’s not surprising that Caymanians have the highest standard of living in the Caribbean!

Because of this tax neutrality, many people are able to maximize portions of their country’s tax code by opening a Cayman Islands offshore bank account. The Cayman Islands will never tax you – or your business – and your offshore bank account will adhere to the laws of your country.

When conducting business in the Cayman Islands, refrain from using the phrase “tax haven,” or “tax evasion;” Caymanians take great pride in their neutrality and tax freedom, and frown upon anything that casts an unwarranted shadow on their financial offices.
