Choose the jurisdiction which best suits your needs

British Virgin Islands

Why choose this jurisdiction when starting a business?
The British Virgin Islands (BVI) is a British overseas territory, located in the Caribbean to the east of Puerto Rico.

The islands make up part of the Virgin Islands archipelago. BVI consist of the main islands of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke, along with over 50 other smaller islands and cays. Around 15 of the islands are inhabited. The largest island, Tortola, is approximately 20 km (~12 mi) long and 5 km (~3 mi) wide. The islands have a total population of about 22,000. Road Town, the capital, is situated on Tortola. One of the leading elements of the economy is offshore banking and offshore company formation.

The British Virgin Islands are among the most prosperous islands in the Caribbean, with the main source of revenue being tourism and the financial sector. With a politically stable government, a UK based system of law and English as the official language, the BVI is an attractive jurisdiction to register a company. The BVI is one of the world’s leading finance centres offering stability with a progressive and democratic society. The financial sector is responsible for just over 50% of total government revenues.

What are the benefits of incorporating in the BVI?

BVI has a “Territorial Tax System” which means IBCs (International Business Companies) that incorporate in the BVI but do business outside of the country are not taxed. Companies don’t have to pay taxes on income, capital gains, customs duties, sales, profits, inheritances, dividends and interests.

Choosing the British Virgin Islands (BVI) as a jurisdiction for starting a business can be attributed to several factors that make it an attractive destination for entrepreneurs and businesses. Here are some reasons why people choose the British Virgin Islands for business:

Tax Benefits
Privacy and Confidentiality
Asset Protection
No Currency Controls
Political and Economic Stability
Ease of Doing Business
Strategic Location

It’s important to note that while the British Virgin Islands offers numerous advantages, each business owner should carefully consider their specific needs, industry, and long-term goals before choosing a jurisdiction.
