Summary
Colonized by English settlers from Saint Kitts in 1650, Anguilla was administered by Great Britain until the early 19th century, when the island - against the wishes of the inhabitants - was incorporated into a single British dependency along with Saint Kitts and Nevis. Several attempts at separation failed. In 1971, two years after a revolt, Anguilla was finally allowed to secede; this arrangement was formally recognized in 1980 with Anguilla becoming a separate British dependency.

There are no income taxes, no corporate taxes, no sales taxes, no value added taxes, etc. When looking for the best jurisdiction to locate your company in, consider Anguilla. A zero-tax jurisdictions is hard to beat. Without a 50% tax burden your company's after tax earnings would be double, and the value of a growing company would be more than double.
