Labuan is a special region of Malaysia where investors can benefit from numerous tax incentives.

The advantages of a Labuan international company  

The Labuan international company provides several advantages to its investors. Firstly, it allows the registration of the company with 100% foreign ownership. The minimum share capital of the company is established at USD 1 and the business entity can have up to 50 shareholders. Such companies do not require obtaining trading licenses for various activities, which are normally required for other business forms. 
At the same time, they benefit from the provisions established by the double taxation treaties enforced here. The tax for the company’s net profits is set at 3% for international sales, while sales performed in Labuan, Malaysia, are taxed at the rate of 24%.
