What Is a BVI Company ?

A corporation formed in the BVI by one or more individuals or entities is known as a BVI company. Offshore businesses registered in the British Virgin Islands are referred to as BVI firms. In the middle of the 1980s, the BVI entered the offshore banking industry. The islands have grown to be such a sought-after location for foreign businesses that many refer to these businesses as simply "BVIs". The BVI Business Companies Act of 2004 eliminated the distinction in the islands between local and offshore companies. The US Dollar is the national currency and English is the official language. The infrastructure for businesses and professionals is vital, and the government is actively promoting the growth of the offshore finance industry.

Types Of Companies In BVI

There are numerous business entities in the British Virgin Islands (BVI).

1.Companies limited by shares

This is a common form of company that allows you to issue shares. To register a company limited by shares, you must specify in your company’s memorandum of association the type of business entity, the maximum number of shares, the classes of shares, and the precise specification of its rights, limitations, and requirements.

2. Companies limited by guarantee (with or without authorisation to issue shares)

Non-profit groups widely use this business form and have no requirements. According to the laws, a minimum of one firm member must be a guaranteed member to establish a company limited by guarantee. It is further divided into a company limited by guarantee authorised to issue shares and a company limited by guarantee not authorised to issue shares.

3. Unlimited Company (with or without authorisation to issue shares)

When an unlimited company is incorporated, its management or members will be held personally accountable for the debts and liabilities of the business, in sharp contrast to a limited company. To be considered an unlimited company, there must always be at least one complete member. It is further classified into unlimited companies authorised to issue shares and unlimited companies not authorised to issue shares.

4. Segregated Portfolio Company

A segregated portfolio business, a subset of company substitutes, owns separate portfolios. The assets and liabilities of each portfolio can be distinguished from the company’s overall assets and liabilities. People who choose to use this business structure typically do so to hold assets or run multiple firms.

5. Restricted purpose Company

Only transactions and limited-purpose activities can be registered under a restricted-purpose company. These restricted uses include off-balance sheet financing and addressing concerns related to insolvency remotely. A corporation limited by shares may also establish a restricted-purpose company.

Procedure to Set up a BVI Company

The following is the process for registering a corporation in the BVI:

Economic Substance Requirements for Companies Registered in The British Virgin Islands

To comply with international norms for tax transparency and prevent tax fraud, the British Virgin Islands (BVI) have imposed economic substance criteria for specific business entities, such as companies and limited partnerships. According to these standards, businesses engaged in specific pertinent activities such as holding company operations, intellectual property, banking, insurance, and shipping must exhibit sufficient economic substance in the BVI. This entails maintaining a physical presence in the BVI, carrying out essential revenue-generating operations there, and employing a sufficient number of skilled people there. Penalties and fines may be incurred for not complying with these rules. An Economic Substance Division has also been established by the BVI government to oversee and enforce adherence to these regulations.
