5 Reasons to Apply For a Vanuatu Forex Broker License

Forex & CFD brokers looking for a cost effective license solution should consider Vanuatu.

Forex brokers have found Vanuatu to be a popular offshore jurisdiction to incorporate their business and establish a license. In recent years regulations across the global have become more stringent, creating more challenges for non-licensed brokers. For this reason, additional license options have begun to appear, Vanuatu being one of them. In today’s article, we provide 5 reasons to consider obtaining a forex license in Vanuatu.

  • It’s a Simpler Process – Although obtaining any license will require paperwork, administration, and documentation, the application and delivery process in Vanuatu is far simpler than other jurisdictions. Assuming all paperwork is provided on a timely basis, licenses can be issued within a 4 – 6 week time period (bear in mind that each application is unique, and dealt with on case-by-case basis).
  • Cost Advantages – With capital requirements currently set at $2,000 and no need for a physical office or director, Vanuatu has lower barriers to entry than other license options.
  • Tax Advantages – Incorporated entities in Vanuatu are exempt from income and capital gains taxes, resulting in major savings for brokers.
  • Flexibility – A license in Vanuatu applies to both forex and binary options brokers alike. It’s also possible to offer social trading, copy trading, and other asset management services with a Vanuatu license. In essence, a license in Vanuatu offers literally everything a broker needs to effectively run its business.
  • Known Hub for Financial Services – Unlike other regions, Vanuatu has been an established hub for offshore financial services in the Asia / Pacific region for nearly 30 years. Because of its specialization in financial services, one can feel safe knowing they are working with a jurisdiction that understands finance.
