Law And Taxation
Seychelles is governed by civil law except for the corporate legislation and criminal law which are based on the English common law. The principal corporate legislation governing IBCs is the International Business Companies Act (IBC Act) 1994. IBCs are exempted from taxation on business activities or transactions carried outside of the Seychelles. An IBC can be converted to other resident companies such as Companies Special Licence (“CSL”).
The CSL is a Seychelles domestic company (incorporated under the Companies Act 1972), which is granted a special licence under the Companies (Special Licences) Act 2003. A CSL can take advantage of the Seychelles steadily expanding network of double taxation treaties which include China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mauritius, Thailand, S. Africa,Botswana, Oman, Cyprus, UAE and Vietnam.
