Jurisdiction: British Virgin Islands

With more than 460,000 companies, the British Virgin Islands is the world’s most popular domicile for offshore incorporation and is also an increasingly attractive jurisdiction for investment funds (especially new managers and start-up funds), and banking and finance transactions. Respected and transparent, the BVI blends a modern regulatory framework with innovative corporate legislation and is recognised globally as a cost-effective route for the secure deployment of international capital.

The ability to flexibly structure complex cross-border corporate activities – involving investors from all parts of the world – makes the BVI highly effective for joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, IPOs and as holding companies for high value assets. Innovative fund vehicles for new managers and start-ups have been highly popular, especially when compliance costs present a barrier to entry elsewhere. BVI trust and wealth management structures are proving attractive for high net worth individuals, especially from Asia, to ensure effective and flexible management of corporate and family affairs.

WHY BVI?

  • Flexible Companies Act based on Delaware statute
  • Legal system based on English common law
  • Tax neutral and cost effective
  • Politically stable
  • Meets international compliance standards and is ‘white-listed’ by OECD

Important contributors to the global economy
