Labuan Investment Banking License

Labuan is a federal territory of Malaysia, located of the coast of the Asian nation. The island’s capital, Victoria, has long been recognized as an offshore financial center offering international financial services. Located in Victoria, the Labuan International Business and Financial Centre was created specifically to be an offshore business hub offering attractive tax rates and an array of cost-effective financial service licenses.
Companies operating out of Labuan are lightly regulated and taxed. Profits are taxed at a rate of three (3%) percent or at a flat rate of MYR 20,0000 (approximately $4,500). The island nation is also renowned for its asset protection framework, with a restriction against the domestication of foreign judgments. As a well-respected international financial center, sophisticated financial service professionals are drawn to Labuan in order to establish financial services firms.
Labuan is an ideal location for the formation of an offshore bank. Vanuatu offers an Investment Banking License which covers all related banking activities, including accepting deposits and issuing debit cards. The licensure is recognized world-wide and is both cost effective and can be accomplished quickly.

Advantages of a Labuan Investment Banking License

In recent years, increasingly complex regulation and an erosion of financial privacy rights in major financial centers such as the United States and European Union have continued to drive the offshore banking industry. Billions of dollars are kept on deposit in offshore banks, even as certain jurisdiction have increased their focus on Anti-Money Laundering controls – which has only enhanced the legitimacy of offshore banking. However, with this industry push towards great transparency has come a tremendous market opportunity to start an offshore bank as the majority of banks have stopped accepting international and/or traditional high-risk banking clients.
