Starting June 30, 2021, preferential rules for foreign companies are abolished in the jurisdiction of Saint Vincent. Now all organizations that have been registered as non-residents (IBCs) will be equated with commercial firms (BCs), and accordingly, they must pay income tax in the amount of 30%. They will have to pay tax on income received in any country.

Companies will have to provide information about the shareholders, as well as about the directors. They need to report to the St. Vincent Financial Services Authority (FSA). All legal entities are required to store all information in their own office in the jurisdiction. Large businesses need to submit financial statements, and small organizations need to submit a financial viability statement. St. Vincent will also prohibit the issue of bearer securities.
