At the moment, Bosnia is a little-known country with an underestimated potential, and most are unlikely to be able to answer the simple question "Where is Sarajevo located, and the capital of which state is it?" For most people who have heard the word "Sarajevo" before, it is associated with poverty and war, but this is not at all the case. There was a war here, in 1992-1995, during the conflict caused by the collapse of Yugoslavia, but now it is a completely peaceful, modern and, without exaggeration, European city. And the fact that there are very few people know about it, is an undeniable plus.
However, this state of affairs will not last long, also in 5-7 years Bosnia will inevitably join the European Union, like all the countries of this region - Montenegro, North Macedonia, Albania, etc. But for now, there is a unique opportunity to take advantage of the current state of affairs, the cheapness and ease of entry into this jurisdiction. And our many years of experience can help you with this.
We are happy to help you, and in addition to the quality of basic services, we guarantee you:
- detailed and free consultations that will help you not to make mistakes and not lose time and money;
- assistance in obtaining a residence permit in Bosnia, permanent residence in Bosnia, citizenship of Bosnia;
- meeting a large number of English speakers, whose help you may need;
- assistance in such matters as company registration in Bosnia, assistance and support in banks, accounting, and lawyers;
- saving your nerves, time and money;
- no prepayments and imposition of unnecessary services.
Why is it not on any list of offshore companies?
The answer is simple: Bosnia is not an official offshore zone but is a de facto offshore. Let's see why:
1. Foreign currency payments are tax-free.
What does it mean? This means that you can accept, for example, 1,000,000 EURO into your Bosnian company's account, and then send them to wherever you need. And the tax will be - 0%. Officially.
2. The easiest compliance.
What is its lightness? Well, for example, many players in the market know that a request from the financial monitoring of bank is, in 99% of cases, an account blocking, as well as a huge list of required documentation. What's in Bosnia? Provide one invoice - and we work further!
3. "Scraping" the purpose of the payment.
Those who know what it is will certainly appreciate the fact that banks in the BH provide the opportunity to completely "break" the appointment. You just need to follow the simple rules of the game.
4. Payment "without purpose".
This is another key benefit of working with Bosnian banks. We indicate in the appointment "Payment according to invoice No. 1 dated 05/01/2021" and that's it! No one requires long and uncomfortable decryptions! Surely, those who are in the know will appreciate this advantage!
5. Official and unofficial private banker.
Well, the key advantage is the opportunity to agree! Flexible and sociable employees of financial institutions, ready to meet the client with complex issues (for example, assignments, or high-risk). Our company will be happy to help you open accounts in these institutions and start mutually beneficial cooperation!
If, after all these arguments, you are still not sure that Bosnia is a real offshore, then just give us a call! During the conversation, you can ask our specialists all your questions, as well as finally dispel any doubts!
We will be glad to see you among our clients!

About Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bosnia and Herzegovina is a special country. This is the place where the East meets the West, both in the cultural sense, in the sense of mentality, and even in the sense of business and finance.
Bosnia - offshore in the heart of Europe!
Few in Russia know this fact, but Bosnia and Herzegovina is a virtual offshore in the centre of Europe, thanks to its tax laws, which allow huge amounts to be transferred through foreign currency accounts with minimal taxes. In short, the amount of tax will be 10% of the difference between incoming and outgoing commercial payments (and officially 0% for foreign currency payments!), which can be easily adjusted at the request of the owner of the company. However, it will not work to avoid paying taxes at all - a minimum rate of 0.5-1.0% of turnover should be observed.
Bosnia is a country with an excellent investment climate!
Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country of the so-called "business black earth". This means that any business that starts or enters the country is growing rapidly, of course, with the right approach. Compared to Russia, America and Europe, the business has minimal restrictions and control by the authorities, and the structure of fiscal services corresponds to Russia in the early 2000s in terms of development. Which has a very beneficial effect on the free and rapid development of business.
Bosnia is the land of freedom!
Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country where freedom is felt in everything. For example, the fact that you can smoke freely in cafes and restaurants, or that a small and weak opposition party won the elections held in the summer of 2020. Such things are unthinkable in totalitarian countries (we will not give specific examples), but here it is a common thing, and perfectly demonstrates the level of democracy and freedom.

Below we will consider what types of residence permits can be obtained:
Residence permit based on a work permit / Business

- Receiving an invitation letter;
- Obtaining a visa "D" (work visa);
- Submission of documents and obtaining a residence permit.

Residence permit based on marriage or family ties, as well as ownership of a real estate
This type of residence permit is also quite common, nevertheless, to obtain it, a documented family relationship with a citizen/citizen of BiH is required, or a confirmed fact of ownership of the real estate in Bosnia.
