Forex-Trading-Licenses-in-Belize.jpgForeign exchange, or Forex for short, is one of the most attractive and lucrative trading markets. Investors who trade in foreign currency will need to apply for the Forex trading licenses in Belize.
Our Belize company formation agents can assist companies in the process of applying for and obtaining a Forex license.

Applying for a special Forex trading license 

Companies in Belize that offer Forex services need to have a license for these types of activities. Belize is a country where the application process for this type of license is a simple one.
Companies that operate on the base of a Forex trading license can run a foreign currency brokerage firm and can provide trading services to their clients. When applying for a Forex trading license in Belize, companies have a high chance of obtaining the proper license when members of the company’s management team are financial experts and have relevant experience in this field.
Some of the benefits of having a Forex trading license include low operation, ownership and renewal costs, affordable license fees, simple approval process and simple due diligence requirements. There are no restrictions on nationality and no requirements for special accounting and bookkeeping. 
Our Belize company registration experts can help you with this application procedure and can also answer any other questions you might have about special licensing and conditions for Belize companies.

  2. The company must have an adequate capital: a mandatory requirement is in place for Belize companies that wish to engage in this type of activity, namely, they must have a minimum paid-up capital
  3. Present the required documents: together with the application for a license, the company will also present documents such as the business plan and the financial forecast for the upcoming years
  4. Bank confirmations: these refer to a confirmation from the bank that the statutory capital of the company has been paid-up when applying for the license

The minimum capital requirements may depend on the types of financial services offered by those who open a company in Belize. Activities that include trading in forex and those related to other financial instruments (stocks, futures, etc.) will require a capital of approximately 100,000 USD.

Companies in Belize need to obtain special permits and licenses, depending on the business activities they engage in. while Forex trading and trading in foreign exchange, in general, are regulated, other activities such as money brokering, broker and advisory services in the financial sector will also require special licenses.
