Whether a U.S. investor or company plans to invest in a business, sell, or buy property in Belize, it is always advisable that they seek background information on their local partner, conduct title searches on real estate or property, and conduct due diligence before completing the business transaction.
The U.S. investor may want to seek the services of a local accountant or attorney who may be able to assist with obtaining background information and/or conducting a property title search.

It is also beneficial to cross-check the legitimacy of local companies in the Belize Companies Registry, to ensure they are legally registered to operate in Belize.

At times, an in-country visit and direct meetings may be required to gather sufficient information on facilities, infrastructure, and adequacy of potential agents, distributors, retailers, or wholesalers.
