IFSC Accredited Companies

GLOBAL BUSINESS DEPARTMENT (COMPANIES WITH INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL SERVICES CENTER ACCREDITATION)

These are non-bank financial institutions that have been certified as International Financial Services Centre (IFSC) companies by the Botswana Investment and Trade Centre (BITC) and issued with a tax certificate.
