LOS ANGELES, April 28, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Located in the only English-speaking country in Central America, Belize Real Estate has been attracting expats from the United States, U.K. and Canada for decades. Belize was a colony of the Crown until 1981, and the British left behind more than their language. They established a stable government, an English-based educational system, secure international business structures, and a legal system tied to the highest court in Great Britain.
They also built up Belize as a banking haven. They looked around at the top banking havens worldwide at the time and picked the best elements of the banking laws in each case. These elements were incorporated into the banking law for the about-to-become-independent nation to be known as Belize.
All these factors, along with its natural beauty, have lead to the "Live and Invest Overseas" Conference being held in Belize this past February. At this conference people learned everything they needed to know about residency and taxes (Belize is one of the most user-friendly places in the world to establish foreign residency and a true tax haven), bank accounts and corporations, holding structures and health insurance, employment opportunities, and current entrepreneurial opportunities and real estate investment options.
A Sanctuary Belize spokesperson said, "Conferences like the Live and Invest Overseas are a perfect way to raise the awareness of Belize and all it has to offer. By hosting it in Belize, it is proof that Belize is truly on the rise as an investment opportunity, and amazing place to live."
