The ISLAMIC SULTANATE OF BRUNEI DARUSSALAM, which means "state of Brunei, the Abode of Peace", is located at the hub of Southeast Asia, on the northwestern coast of the Island of Borneo along the shores of the South China Sea. Brunei is one of the richest countries in the world also the member of APEC, WTO, UN, ASEAN and other international organisations. Its domestic economy is driven by petroleum and natural gas exploitation industry.
In 2000, Brunei passed laws permitting overseas legal person and persons to set up external tax-free holding companies, i.e. IBC (International Business Company). In order to meet the demands from Chinese-speaking Asian regions, external companies can use Chinese names.
IBCs need not pay tax. In order to provide a safe, stable and preferential financial environment to IBCs, Brunei has set up an International Financial Centre and practices a dual judicial system, where international legislation and domestic legislation operate in parallel, and final appeal can be submitted to London to facilitate the operation.
