Helping you do business in Vanuatu.

Local businesses can be set up easily, and without much of the paperwork that international businesses need. Our strong relationships with government networks and banks will make the process that much faster and simpler for you.

All it takes is VAT registration and a business license, and these are relatively straight forward to obtain. Vanuatu is a stable and well respected International Finance Center, so there are no capital gains taxes, income taxes, or withholding taxes, which makes our country an attractive choice when starting a business.

We help local businesses with:
