COMPANY REGISTRATION & LICENCE
We are a foreign licensed financial advisory and investment management firm, governed and regulated by the Central Bank of Bahrain, with an IBC Company registered in Seychelles.
Our firm is favoured by specific legislation and is an offshore corporation with its main benefits including tax exemptions, dispensation from having to file annual returns or accounts and the simplicity of its administration.
As a foreign entity with an operational office headquarters in Manama; when Nvestox client funds are remitted from outside of Kingdom of Bahrain we consequently avail of a ‘Privilege Tax Status’ registration. Nvestox’ clients who prefer to invest offshore, and for the duration of their investments, enjoy the benefits of being treated as tax exempt.
We are also the only country in the region that has no ‘free zone’ restrictions as the whole of Bahrain is considered a free zone.
Bahrain is a leading asset management centre in the region, having been initially established in the 1980s, with the first Bahraini-domiciled fund being launched in the Kingdom in 1984. Our regulatory system and financial services infrastructure enable asset managers to meet increasing demand for managed funds, from both institutions and individuals.
The CBB issued a new regulatory framework in 2007 for collective investment undertakings. This broadened the range of products asset managers could offer and the style of funds that could be managed, including alternative investment funds. Burgeoning private wealth is fuelling needs for private banking and wealth management products.
We are committed to maintaining the region’s most liberal business environment, with no corporate income tax, no personal income tax, no wealth tax on capital gain, and no withholding tax.
