Welcome to ILS World

Isle of Man

Secure, efficient and business friendly, ILS World's approach is defined by our home jurisdiction, the Isle of Man.

British Virgin Islands

ILS World opened its doors in Road Town, Tortola in 1994. From this central location in the British Virgin Islands we provide a timely and efficient service, drawing upon locally cultivated knowledge and applying it within an independent, global network.


From our Shanghai office, ILS World provides commercial and private clients access to the right global network to meet their ambitions.


The ILS World independent network expanded into the Middle East's vibrant economic and cultural centre in 2005. Since then, we have combined Dubai's excellent reputation as a business friendly and well regulated economy with our significant experience in the jurisdiction to deliver peerless fiduciary, regional incorporation and corporate administration services to clients operating in this exciting marketplace.

Hong Kong

ILS World combines a straightforward and efficient service with Hong Kong's business friendly environment to offer our private and commercial clients confidence and peace of mind in a dynamic marketplace.


Our London office is ideally situated to serve a large local client base. It is the hub of ILS World’s administrative function for our UK client companies and an excellent location from which to liaise with a global client portfolio.


Our expansion into Portugal in 1999 was in response to the needs of our clients. We’re here because you need us to be. Since then, ILS World’s presence in this exciting marketplace has enabled us to better meet considerable demand for offshore wealth management and protection services and do so with the care and pragmatism expected of all ILS World locations.


ILS World opened its doors in Geneva in 2005 and offers a full range of corporate and fiduciary services. With expertise in international holding and trading structures and the ability to manage those structures from within one of the world’s most respected and stable jurisdictions, the business has grown organically and rapidly.


We draw upon Uruguay’s reputation as a strong economy with a stable fiscal and political environment and robust regulatory practices to offer clients wishing to invest in and manage wealth within South America the perfect regional platform.


Trading Structures

Cross border trading often gives rise to substantial tax planning opportunities. ILS World provides significant trading taxation reductions. Once profit has been generated, profits can be remitted to a low tax destination through the use of suitable holding, or tax transparent entities.

These are well regulated and adhere to the latest international information exchange agreements. With decades of experience working beyond borders, ILS World is the clear choice for international trading structures. One such structure is the European Trading Platform, which ensures the efficient importation of goods into the EU and improves overseas manufacturers' profit margins.

Tax and cash efficient, with low working capital requirements and with access to a well regulated and effective banking system, European Trading Platform clients gain a competitive edge and a powerful business development platform.

Another popular solution is to use the Entry Processing Unit, a key benefit of Isle of Man VAT registration. We help to accredit your company with Customs Freight Simplified Procedure status, allowing access to the EPU's fully automated goods declaration service. This allows direct access to the UK's CHIEF system, enabling you to file and pay for VAT and customs duties electronically.

Any European Union trading company can benefit from our services. Goods do not need to physically transit the Isle of Man, and can freely travel to anywhere within the EU once cleared with Isle of Man or UK Customs. An Isle of Man company can be registered for VAT within just seven days, and can be granted a Deferment Account within two days. This exclusive access is often the most efficient way to maximise trading into the European Union.
