Assistance for Small Businesses

Companies that offer services or products in an area defined as a priority for the Islands - tourism, for instance - may qualify for benefits such as customs duty exemptions. For developers, Invest TCI offers services that bridge the gap between businesses and the government and advocates for investors.

Foreign Direct Investment and Large Developments

The Turks and Caicos Government has a policy of providing extensive concessions and incentives to foreign developers, including tax breaks, protection from future taxation, discounts on crown land, and other attractive incentives via developer agreements.

Technical Assistance

Invest TCI also offers technical assistance to businesses. Technical support may include professional or financial assistance for product design, packaging design, quality control, business plans for financial management, local and export marketing, production management, and help with arranging financing.
