General information on GibraltarGibraltar is a British overseas territory which has been a United Kingdom possession since 1704. It is located in Southern Europe, more specifically in the south of Spain, on the edge of the Strait of Gibraltar, which links the Mediterranean to the Atlantic Ocean. A large part of this territory is covered by the enormous Rock of Gibraltar. Gibraltar has 28,000 inhabitants.
The country is part of the European Union and, for this reason, companies registered in Gibraltar benefit from all of the advantages of a European company, but with a far lower tax rate.
