Company Formation & Administration
The Territory of the Virgin Islands is an overseas territory of the United Kingdom and one of the several jurisdictions that are characterized as off-shore commercial centers. The BVI, as it is commonly called is, however, neither an offshore banking center nor a tax haven. While the jurisdiction does offer banking services to and the establishment of mutual funds by non-residents and its companies are not subject to corporate taxes or stamp duties, the focus of the BVI continues to be the incorporation of business companies (BVIBCs) which allow their principals flexibility and creativity in asset protection, estate management and as special purpose vehicles or which operate as well-recognized listed holding, investment and trading companies. All of this is accomplished in an unobtrusive, well-regulated environment that results in the acceptance of BVIBCs from the BVI throughout the world without compromising their advantages of speed of incorporation, tax neutrality and confidentiality for their owners.
