BVI offshore company formation
The British Virgin Islands are a British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean and form part of the West Indies. A British Overseas Territory is not a part of the United Kingdom, but still has the British monarch as its Head of State. There are 14 British Overseas Territories and the Virgin Islands is one of them. They govern themselves, but the United Kingdom is responsible for Foreign Relations and Defence. So you can see why BVI offshore company formation needs to be handled carefully by an experienced professional with extensive knowledge of local and international law.
The British Virgin Islands comes under the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Overseas Territories and Sustainable Development in the UK, and its residents are officially British citizens.
What makes the British Virgin Islands a great place to open a company?
The official language spoken is English, which is a major advantage when it comes to documentation.
The BVI Business Companies Act (No. 16 of 2004), which came into effect in 2005, is the principal law pertaining to company formation. It simplifies everything greatly, including reduced / minimal reporting and a very basic company structure that requires just one shareholder and one Director. Companies incorporated in the British Virgin Islands can carry out business anywhere in the world.
There is no corporate or income tax for companies registered in the BVI; neither are there any capital gains taxes on profits. Foreigners can open companies, and the British Virgin Islands lays emphasis on confidentiality – the names of company owners / founders are not easily accessible to the public.
All these factors make the British Virgin Islands a highly attractive destination for incorporating your company.
