Welcome to Madeira’s International Business Center

Madeira’s International Business Center (Madeira’s IBC) offers a very attractive set of benefits, including tax and operational benefits, in a well-regulated and monitored business environment. Madeira’s IBC covers three main areas of activity: International Services, the Industrial Free Trade Zone and MAR- Madeira’s International Ship Registry.

Madeira’s IBC is located in the Archipelago of Madeira, an autonomous region of Portugal and a member of the European Union, positioned on the Atlantic coast, 900 km southwest of Lisbon. Funchal, the capital of the archipelago has around 254,000 inhabitants. Madeira enjoys a stable political and social environment and has its own governmental bodies: a Parliament and the Regional Government.

Madeira's interest as a business jurisdiction largely resides in its International Business Centre, a major attraction for foreign investors which was recognized by the European Union as a legitimate player in the development of the island's economy.

Madeira’s International Business Center is fully integrated into Portuguese and European legal systems, which makes it a prime location for effective investments ina well-regulated business centre, described by the OECD as a model to follow.
