The Cayman Islands gained this status by marketing itself as a luxury tourist destination, which allowed them to charge higher rates, and sell high-end products to visitors who were willing to spend more for special treatment and pampering. In 2003, the islands welcomed over 2.1 million tourists, with half of these guests arriving from the United States alone to invest into Cayman Island.

The financial sector is the second largest industry in the Cayman Islands. The lack of taxation from Great Britain allowed the Cayman Islands to establish itself as one of the top financial centers in the world, and 40 of the world’s largest banks make their homes in the country. At one point, more than 80,000 international companies were registered in the Cayman Islands. Currently, there are four basic types of companies available in Cayman company registration:

1. Resident/Ordinary Companies
Resident/Ordinary Companies are companies with capital less than $42,000; pays for fee of $150 upon registration. If their capital is more than $42,000, their registration fee will be increase which is $350.

2. Non-Resident Companies
Non-Resident Companies are companies without permanent location and has capital less than $42,000; upon filing a Memorandum and Articles of Association, and its Annual Return of January, the registration fee is $400. If the capital is more than $42,000 then the registration fee is $565.

3. Exempted Companies

Most people use these offshore locations for exempt companies for a business which would be barred from carrying out business in Cayman, other than in the requirements for doing offshore businesses. It is also possible that Trust companies, Insurance and Banks can end up being registered as an exempt company, once the required license is done.
