An internally self-governing overseas territory of the United Kingdom, Anguilla is a British overseas territory in the Caribbean. It is one of the most northerly of the Leeward Islands in the Lesser Antilles, lying east of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands and directly north of Saint Martin.

With capital at The Valley, Anguilla has become a popular tax haven, having no capital gains, estate, profit or other forms of direct taxation on either individuals or corporations.

As one of the common internationally recognized offshore centers, Anguilla’s main advantages are the speed with which it is possible to register a company (1-2 days) and the confidentiality that this country offers.

Anguilla has, since 1992 (and specifically in 1994), introduced and adopted numerous pieces of modern financial service legislation.
