Stephen Greaves - President, Platinum International Business Solutions, Inc. “ The International Business Sector is continuously evolving, so we have to be analytical, creative and flexible enough to adjust to any changes, ideally before they even happen. That is why we at Platinum, and Barbados as a whole, have been able to adapt so readily to the legislative changes to our income tax regime in response to the OECD-driven BEPS and the new international standards governing economic substance. We have been promoting the concept of central management and control since inception, whereby any Board of Directors should have the right expertise, contemporaneous documentation and a physical presence, including having a quorum of the board that must attend meetings of Barbados subsidiaries. All of that is now part and parcel of the new economic substance requirements, but we are already well-accustomed to delivering that level of legitimacy. These are exciting times and I am optimistic about the future opportunities for the sector in Barbados.” C Customised Solutions for Clients of Substance Platinum International Business Solutions BUSINESS BARBADOS PROFILE
