Belize Payment Service Provider License

Belize is an independent parliamentary constitutional monarchy within the British Commonwealth. The nation has long been known for its financial stability, pegging its local currency directly to the volatility of the United States dollar. In recent years, the government of Belize has made largely successful efforts to transition the focus of the nation’s economy from staple commodities to financial services, including offering the Belize Money Transmission license.

Belize has long been recognized as a tax haven, offering zero taxes on offshore profits. The country’s banking infrastructure is also popular among sophisticated professionals who find the relative privacy of Belize to be largely unrivaled. Moreover, the nation’s international business corporation regime and court structure makes it one of the most attractive locations for asset protection.

The Belize is an ideal location for promoters of payment services businesses. The country offers the Belize Money Transmission license which covers all related payments activity, including peer-to-peer remittances and payment processing. The license is recognized world-wide and many top payment service providers are licensed in Belize. In addition, the process of obtaining a license is both cost effective and can be accomplished quickly.

Advantages of a Belize Payment Service
Provider License

In recent years, payment service providers based in traditional financial hubs such as the United States and European Union have faced near untenable amounts of regulatory scrutiny. In reaction to this, payment service providers have become increasingly limited in the industries they serve, foregoing not only traditional high-risk markets but also more traditional, conservative businesses. A Belize Money Transmission license provides a respected platform for operating a payments-related business free from the encumbrances faced by operators in larger jurisdictions.
