Refer ALL ENQUIRIES directly to the Principality for attention.

The Principality of Hutt River, by order of His Royal Highness, Prince Leonard passed into law the International Business Companies Act on 29th August 2004 (this Act revised in January 2009) International Business Companies are generally referred to around the world as IBC’s.  .

In framing the legislation care was taken to keep administrative costs of IBC’s at an absolute minimum while at the same time giving maximum flexibility. Judge for yourself if this has been achieved!
