The Caymans are comprised of three small islands in the western region of the Caribbean Sea, located between Belize and Honduras, Cuba and Jamaica. The central island is Grand Cayman, where the majority of the population resides, as well as most of its business activity, also holding the capital city of Georgetown. The islands were first discovered by Columbus in 1503 on one of his journeys to the Caribbean and the Americas. At first it was ruled by the Spanish, but in 1670 it was transferred to the British. It is currently an independent overseas British territory. The local population is very diverse, including Caucasian Europeans, Afro-Europeans, Africans and others.
Island area spans only 264 km2 and the population is only 55,000 people. As it is in the Caribbean, the climate is tropical, meaning hot and humid during both summer and winter months. The rainy season lasts from May to October, and winters are dry. During hurricane season during June-November, the islands suffer periodical tropical cyclone storms. The Caymans are generally typified by rich and luxurious tropical landscapes, long virginal beaches, clear blue waters and tropical tree groves.For Viewing Cayman Islands in Google Maps - Click Here
The major component of the Cayman economy is the financial services sector, registration of companies, a successful tourism industry, and a particularly large shipping industry. The local currency is the Cayman Islands dollar (worth 1.2 USD). GDP is estimated at 2.25 billion USD and per capita income at 47,000 USD, which is the highest rate in the Caribbean and ranked 14th in the world. Local companies law in the Caymans encourages offshore business there, and the tax laws are equally hospitable. There is no requirement of income tax, capital gains tax or corporate tax on the islands. Most of the offshore companies that register there are part of the finance, banking, or hedge funds industries, or investment companies or some kind. To date, the state has been very protective of company owners’ privacy.
Foreign companies that decide to establish a business in the Cayman Islands enjoy various benefits, such as 0% corporate tax, complete confidentiality regarding company office holders, and very quick and simple registration process. However, there are some requirements that must be met, such as reports of fiscal activities and renting local offices on the islands.
