Introducing Antigua and Barbuda

Lying in the Eastern Caribbean's Leeward Islands, the English speaking two-island state of Antigua and Barbuda is a favoured tourist destination dubbed the 'Land of 365 Beaches'. These lush tropical islands are considered among the most beautiful places in the world, and tourism is the dominant source of income, generating about 60% of the islands' GDP.

Having gained independence from Britain in 1981, Antigua and Barbuda has developed a reputation for judicial and governmental stability. Antigua operates an attractive personal tax regime with no capital gains or inheritance taxes, and no tax on foreign-sourced income, relying instead on corporation and sales tax.
