The Cooperative Republic of Guyana is located on the northeastern Atlantic coast of South America and borders Venezuela, Suriname, and Brazil. It is the only English-speaking country on the continent. The country's leading trading partner is the U.S., so setting up a business in Georgetown or any other city in Guyana can help your company enter the American market. In addition, the state is a member of the Caribbean Community CARICOM.

Advantages of registering a company

  • state support for foreign entrepreneurs;
  • the abundance of natural resources;
  • easy access to Latin America and the Caribbean;
  • low cost of doing business.

Main forms of legal presence and doing business

  • individual entrepreneurship (SP);
  • partnership;
  • private limited liability company (PLLC);
  • public limited company (PLC).

A PLLC is the most popular legal entity for foreigners who open a business in Guyana. Non-residents can wholly own such companies. There is no minimum amount of share capital required by law. However, a PLLC involves a minimum of 2 shareholders and one director.

Registration procedure

  • reserve a unique company name;
  • obtain a Declaration of Compliance from a local lawyer;
  • register the company in Guyana with the Registrar of Companies;
  • apply for a Taxpayer Identification Number from the Internal Revenue Service;
  • register with the appropriate division of the Guyana Revenue Authority for the payment of VAT;
  • obtain an Employer Identification Number (NIS) from the National Insurance Scheme;
  • make a seal;
  • open a bank account;
  • obtain licenses and permits.

Legislation and regulatory environment

The Companies Act of 1991 governs the creation, eligibility, and dissolution of all companies in Guyana. The Tax Act requires the proper maintenance of accounting records. In addition, companies must keep registers of directors and officers, all minutes of meetings, and resolutions passed by management.

Tax system

  • corporate tax - 25%;
  • PIT - 40%;
  • VAT -14%;
  • dividend tax - 0% (for residents), 20% (for non-residents);
  • tax on capital gains - 20%.

Resident companies pay taxes on worldwide income. Non-resident companies doing business in Guyana are taxed on locally sourced income.

Collaborated with the company for 3 years. I can’t say that everything was smooth from the point of view of organizing the work; there was confusion in the structure of the work, etc. But I’ll specifically highlight employee Lyubov Malinowski, she very diligently corrected all errors and was in touch at the right time, her help was significant in all processes and she approached all issues precisely. I would like to separately highlight the moment when she solved the problem at her own expense, which speaks of the person’s professionalism and increased responsibility.

As a software development crew at FewMoreTaps OÜ, we've had the pleasure of working with Prifinance on some key financial moves.First of all, navigating the world of corporate banking and finance can be a maze, but Prifinance made it feel like a walk in the park. They helped us set up a corporate bank account without the hassle of jumping on a plane or drowning in paperwork. Everything was done remotely, smoothly and securely.But that's not all. We had a slightly time-sensitive situation when it came to changing the beneficiary details on our account. Prifinance stepped up to the plate and handled everything quickly and professionally.It's not just about getting the job done. It's about how Prifinance does it. They're all about making complex financial matters simple and accessible for companies like ours. Plus, their team, especially Liubov Malinowski, has been nothing short of fantastic to work with - professional, timely and always on the ball.In short, FewMoreTaps OÜ wholeheartedly endorses Prifinance OÜ. Whether it's opening bank accounts remotely or navigating the financial legalities of running an international business, these guys have got your back. A big thank you to the entire Prifinance team for their first class support and expertise.Here's to more collaborations in the future!Best,Kiryl Nest

I'm thrilled with my experience with PriFinance! They helped me obtain a crypto license in Estonia without any hassle. The team was super understanding and always available to answer my questions and assist. It was great to see how they put effort into preparing the documents to ensure everything went smoothly. I'm delighted with the outcome and highly recommend PriFinance to anyone looking to get a license stress-free!
Opening an account with Prifinance in a Swiss bank was such an easy and quick process that I was shocked. It all started with the first call, where I received detailed guidance on the required documents and the entire procedure.One of the key highlights was their attention to detail. As someone who usually gets tangled up in paperwork, I was pleasantly surprised when they sent me all the documents and instructions clearly and neatly. No misunderstandings!Honestly, I expected opening a Swiss bank account to be complex and time-consuming, but thanks to Prifinance, I felt like a professional financial expert. Thank you for making this process so easy and enjoyable!
