The British Virgin Islands (BVI) is one of the largest offshore financial centers in the world and a leading hub for the incorporation of offshore companies.
The British Virgin Islands have a strong regulatory environment at offshore. They have a distinct combination of supervision and a laissez-faire method that makes business both simple – and trustworthy with banks and other jurisdictions across the globe.
The British Virgin Islands have reputable compliance and regulatory body which makes banking with a BVI company very simple and convenient.
Business companies in BVI are also used as vehicles for asset protection, most often in combination with a trust as a holding. BVI BC 's directors may protect the assets by transferring their assets to another company, trust, foundation, association, or partnership; the directors may also merge or consolidate with any other company or may relocate the BC entirely to another jurisdiction.
The BVI Business Companies Act, 2004 states that all BVI-formed international business companies must establish and maintain a Register of Directors, which appoints the initial Director within 30 days of incorporation. Many statutory provisions are minimal and flexible.
There are no requirements to appoint a local director or secretary, there is no need for minimum capitalization, BVI BCs can require and re-issue their own shares.
Shares may be issued and denominated in any currency for a consideration other than cash, with or without the par value.
BVI is one of the few places in the world where we still regularly use bearer shares. While over the past decade they have undergone major changes (specifically the BVI Business Companies Act, 2004 as amended) there are still bearer shares. The key requirement for bearer shares is for a "Registered Custodian" to maintain in the file the following:
a. Full name of the beneficial shareholder; and
b. The full name(s) of any other person(s) with a share(s) interest or a declaration that no other person has any interest in the share(s).
The BVI has some of the most diverse corporation structures in the world. When incorporating an IBC, it can be registered as
a. LTD/ limited
b. INC/ Incorporates
c. Corp/ Corporation
d. Sociedad Anonima (SA)/ Societe Anonyme
PREREQUISITES FOR COMPANY INCORPORATION:
a. One director
b. One shareholder
c. No minimum capital requirement
Incorporation can be done within two to three days, Shareholder and executive details are not published in a public registry. In addition, candidate directors and shareholders are commonplace and can be used to further enhance privacy at a slightly higher price to ensure optimum secrecy and safety.
BVI international business Companies, even if administered in BVI, are excluded from local taxes and stamp duties. Only applicable for registration and annual license/franchise fees. In addition, the BVI Business Companies Act allows BCs to do business and own real estate in the British Virgin Islands, unlike other offshore vehicles.
Corporate income tax – The British Virgin Islands does not levy corporate taxes including no capital gains and investment income taxes. It also exempts all dividends, compensations, rentals, and royalties from BVI income.
No withholding tax is levied on payments to non-residents by dividend, interest, and royalty.
While there is no interest tax, the BVI has introduced the EU Savings Guideline, which means that agents making interest payments to citizens of an EU Member State must immediately share information with the tax authorities of the relevant Member States about the identity of the beneficial owner and the payment.
Other taxes-BVI do not levy personal direct taxes. Personal income and capital gains, net wealth and inheritances are not taxable.
In the British Virgin Islands, stamp duty is levied on land transfer. The value of the contract or the market value is imposed and ranges from 4% to 12%.
Land tax is levied annually between half an acre and one acre at USD 50 for half an acre or less, and USD 150. Every additional acre or part of an acre shall be taxed at USD 50 every.

Professional and trusted service, my company needed certification from the state excise in the State of Telangana and CORPZo were so professional in their approach, be it filing of part 3 and 4 of MSME or application process with the state exice that it made my life easy.
Will always look to a team which is knowledgeable particularly when it comes to the field of alternative medicine. I had spoken to many including the government offices but was confused how to proceed with setting up of my pharma unit, CORPZo had the right professional guidance available.
They believe in transparency in business and give high regard to Customer Satisfaction. Love to work with them and Highly Recommended
I needed to apply for business related registration and receive some certificates. Their service is very professional. I researched in the market and found that they are very cost effective, so initially I was a bit doubtful, but, for my surprise, they are better than some of the big house.
Awesome and excellent services provided to me. Great and polite gestures with full professional behavior . Have got my company incorporated by corpzo. It was done within a week and have been using their accounting services ever since. They have been a real boost to my business.
