How Anguilla’s SEZ can foster a Creative and Entrepreneurial Culture

Entrepreneurship and creativity are keystones of a great business, and having the freedom to create and grow on your terms is priceless. Of course, no business can grow without the right support in place, so having the opportunity to base your business within a supportive, expansive, and accessible environment is a major win.

As an entrepreneur, inspiration is vital to keep ideas fresh and maintain your vision of innovation and expansion. Luckily, AZUR SEZ is the perfect platform from which to seize abundant opportunities and bring your ideas to life. 

Let's take a closer look at how bringing your business to Anguilla allows you the freedom, flexibility, and infrastructure to foster your creative and entrepreneurial potential. 

Enjoy the Benefits of Regulatory Flexibility

As a new or established business, there will always be bureaucratic hurdles in your way that have the potential to limit your ideas and ultimately stifle any great plans. However, in Anguilla, AZUR SEZ offers a favourable regulatory environment with flexible laws and regulations that benefit businesses. 

This flexibility is the key to growing new ideas and experimenting with innovative practices, all without excessive bureaucratic hurdles.

A separate and unique legal jurisdiction

The autonomous administrative system that AZUR SEZ holds is set up to benefit foreign businesses and has its own legal and regulatory framework that works to help rather than hinder businesses within it. 

Attractive Tax Incentives

To ease the financial burden, operating within AZUR SEZ makes your business eligible for an attractive range of tax incentives such as 0% import duties on equipment and raw materials, 0% corporate tax for up to 20 years, and no restrictions on repatriation of profits. 

Strategically placed for global markets

Anguilla is ideally located to provide businesses with easy access to European, South American, and North American markets, optimizing it as a prime location for global expansion. 

Banking with a crypto-friendly approach

AZUR SEZ also offers guaranteed banking services (with due diligence) powered by EQIBank, one of the world’s leading digital banks. With the option of leveraging cryptocurrency to fund your business, the opportunities for growth are extended and optimized.  

Expand Your Opportunities With AZUR’s Specialized Infrastructure

Anguilla is the ideal place for forward-thinking businesses and entrepreneurs to thrive. Not only is there a stable and modern regulatory infrastructure in place, but the government is intent on diversifying its economic landscape and offering attractive opportunities for businesses that make Anguilla their base.

Residence Rights

For the entrepreneurs who want to live in paradise, companies who base their headquarters in the AZUR SEZ are also entitled to residence rights in Anguilla. With plenty of natural wonders, sandy beaches, and popular attractions, new residents are warmly welcomed to their Caribbean abode. 

A Tax-friendly Environment 

Many businesses are looking for a more tax-friendly environment allowing them to focus more on expansion, without the added worry of unexpected tax changes. 

With a well-established legal framework based on British Common Law, AZUR SEZ has also built a solid relationship with the Government of Aguilla who has guaranteed concessions for 50 years (25+25), meaning business based within AZUR SEZ can relax without having to contend with changes to the law. 

Sharing the Culture of Creativity and Entrepreneurship 

Of course, bringing businesses to a new location brings new opportunities for the area and its population. AZUR SEZ is a haven for job creation through direct and indirect jobs. 

Job Creation

Creating an essential and flourishing part of the local economy, direct and indirect jobs can give a much-needed boost to local workers and expand their skills into a variety of new and untapped industries. 

Economic Diversification

A positive and transformative force, attracting new businesses to Anguilla creates a more balanced and varied economy. More jobs are created, new industries are established and the economy grows more stable as a result of diversification. 

By attracting new investment from previously under-represented sectors, the potential for local economic growth is increased and promises greater stability going into the future. 

Technology transfer and sharing best practices

Foreign companies have a wealth of knowledge that can be shared with local businesses to help them expand their operations within Anguilla. 

By sharing best practices and technology transfer, smaller, local companies who may have previously been at a disadvantage within their sector can now gain access to valuable information to increase their reach and gain a more competitive edge.

For example, sharing marketing technologies, negotiating partnerships, securing patent rights, and developing ecosystems and structures to support smaller local firms extend their reach are positive and practical ways in which technology transfer is helping local communities. 

Training the local workforce

Similarly, by providing training and education opportunities, the strengths and skills of the local workforce are diversified to better serve the needs of a more varied economic marketplace. 

Greenfield Investments Benefit the Host Country

Greenfield investments with AZUR SEZ involve starting a new business from scratch and constructing the facilities and infrastructure required to support its operations within a designated area. 

Growing New Industries

They not only benefit foreign investors but rather create a favorable environment for the host country by providing access to new markets, lowering production costs, creating new jobs for local people, and helping to develop the growth of new industries.
