Cayman Islands at the beginning of the 16th century were discovered by the famous explorer Christopher Columbus and since then the islands several times were ruled by different national authorities, while in 1962 became separate British Overseas Territory. The Cayman Islands are considered as “tax haven” all the time since the island occupancy beginning until today. There was never charged income tax or capital gains tax, which made the island an increasingly popular tax bay. Currently, the island has become a thriving financial center, where are located more than sixty thousand offshore companies. Registered number of banks is reaching almost five hundred. At the same time, tourism is the main source of income in GDP.
