1. Introduction: Cape Verde is becoming more and more consolidated on the world market as a holiday destination with great potential. Its wild, exotic landscapes, the excellent sandy beaches with crystal clear water, the deep ocean full of fish, coral and marine archaeology, along with the unique conditions for practicing water sports, the warm nights filled with irresistible musical rhythms and last but not less important, the delightful, outgoing personality of the people make this archipelago a paradise set in the heart of the Atlantic Ocean. At the beginning of 2008, Cape Verde abandoned the Group of Low Income Countries and entered the group of Middle Income Countries (according to OECD criteria). In addition, from July 2008, the archipelago is a member of the WTO, which strengthens the multilateral trading system and will enable it to continue integrating into the world economy. From 1991 the country has been applying market-orientated economic policies, making foreign investment easier, encouraging the private sector through privatisation and by developing tourism, light manufacturing industries and the fishing industry. It has also improved transportation, communications and electricity installations. Furthermore, the integration of Cape Verde into the world economy and the development of the private sector, backed up by the arrival of large groups of foreign investors, a key element in the development of the country, have made it necessary to set up a legal framework that no only offers attractive incentives for investment, but also provides security that will facilitate and guarantee foreign investment in the country.

2. Cape Verde: a. Geographical Situation:

Archipelago of Cape Verde

The Republic of Cape Verde occupies an area of 4,033 square kilometers. The islands of Cape Verde are situated in the Atlantic Ocean, to the south of the Canary Islands and some 500 kilometres from the coast of Senegal. Cape Verde has a privileged location, between the continents of Europe, Africa and America, right on the Atlantic shipping route. The archipelago is of volcanic origin and is made of ten islands and eight small islets. The islands form two groups, depending on their relation with the north-east wind: the Windward Islands (Barlovento) consisting of São Antao, São Vicente, Santa Lucia, São Nicolau, Sal and Boa Vista; and the Leeward Islands (Sotavento) formed by Maio, São Tiago, Fogo and Brava. The terrain is generally craggy and of volcanic origin; the highest point is in Fogo with an altitude of 2,829m. However, Sal and Boa Vista are flat, with extensive meadows and dunes of fine, white sand. The climate is dry subtropical with an average temperature of 25 degrees centigrade (the coolest in Africa). Temperatures drop somewhat from December to February due to the wind blowing from the Sahara, the Hamattan. The sea temperature varies between 21 and 25 degrees.

The integration of Cape Verde into the world economy and the development of the private sector, backed up by the arrival of large groups of foreign investors, have brought about the need to establish legal and taxation conditions to create the right framework of security to facilitate and guarantee the new foreign investments. The Cape Verde Foreign Investors’ Statute (Act nº 89/IV/93) provides for the following incentives and guarantees:

 Tax Incentives: • Tax exemption for dividends and profits during the first five years of activity. •Tax exemption for dividends and profits re-invested in the same or another business in the country. • Tax exemption on interest payments. A privileged taxation system for any investments that, after the exemption period has expired and they are not re-invested, will only be taxed at a rate of 10% on the profits and dividends (this represents a 50% tax reduction on Income Tax applied to non-residents, currently set at 20%)

By law, a foreign investment is considered to be any participation in financial business that is made with money brought from abroad and that can be financially revalued. For foreign investments thus qualified, the State of Cape Verde, under its own law, guarantees the non-discrimination of foreigners, who are given fair treatment both regarding the security and protection of their assets and rights, and also the guarantee that they cannot become subject to nationalization or expropriation, except in the case of for public use.

Guarantees: Protection of assets and rights inherent to foreign investment. Free transfer of dividends and profits abroad. No nationalisation or expropriation. Possibility of opening bank accounts in foreign currency.

Exemption from local property rates on buildings. 100% tax exemption during the first five years. Tax deductions on profits reinvested in similar businesses.
