Vanuatu is a pure tax haven, and commercial activities in the country have been greatly influenced by this status. An extremely active financial centre, it is engaged in the administration and management of offshore companies, trusts and banks.
Pure, because for both residents and non-residents there are no personal or corporate income taxes, no estate or gift duties, no capital gains taxes, no exchange controls, and extensive confidentiality provisions.
Contrary to the spin the powers-to-be would like you to believe in, international financial centres are not only places used for tax planning purposes. While this may be one of the their main uses to reduce your tax liabilities legally, they are also very important in the fields of estate and gift duty planning, minimizing stamps duties, holding of intellectual property, copyrights, trade patents etc and the circumvention of exchange controls; uses which are commonly overlooked.
