USVI Tax Advantaged ECommerce

 
US Virgin Islands (USVI) is an unincorporated territory of the United States with the ability to offer tax incentives to companies meeting certain requirements.  The tax incentives can include a 90% reduction in income tax liability on income which is “effectively connected” with the conduct of a USVI trade or business.  Other tax incentives are also available.  The University of the Virgin Islands Research and Technology Park (UVI RT Park) is empowered to extend such tax benefits to certain knowledge based-companies matching its charter.

Tropical Telecom was a founding partner and tenant of the UVI RTPark and is an authorized telecom service and bandwidth provider to all tenants of the RTPark.  The UVI RTPark data center was created at the hub of submarine  fiber connectivity between North America, South America, Central America and the Caribbean to provide a platform for tax-advantaged eCommerce.  Tax advantages paired with massive fiber connectivity and robust data centers within hardened cable landing stations make USVI a fantastic place to setup or to relocate a knowledge-based business.
