Seychelles is located in the Indian Ocean approximately 1500 km from the African coast. It is a full member of the United Nations, WTO, African Union, COMESA and an independent member of the British Commonwealth. World renowned for its idyllic beaches, the Seychelles tourism industry is the biggest contributor to the economy which ranks top in Africa in terms of GDP per capita according to the 2016 IMF statistics. The growing financial services sector presently contributes approximately 10% to the economy. Seychelles is safe, stable and committed to its continued growth as a well-regulated, compliant financial center.
Seychelles enjoys several advantages over most of its British linked competitors such as BVI, Caymans, Jersey and Guernsey. Being independent, it is not under the jurisdiction of the EU or UK. However, Seychelles is committed to maintaining its present compliant status with the OECD and FATF and in general ensuring that the jurisdiction is well regulated and in good standing with major economies. Seychelles is also better situated to serve Chinese clients being situated at GMT+4 and has a fully-fledged Chinese Embassy.

The Seychelles IBC remains one of the most popular tax neutral companies in the world with over 65,000 active companies and 10,000 to 20,000 new incorporations annually, many of which are formed for clients in mainland China， Hong Kong and Taiwan.
