This publication has been prepared for the assistance of those who are considering the procedures for the registering and licensing of ships in the British Virgin Islands (“BVI”). It deals in broad terms with the requirements of BVI law. It is not intended to be exhaustive but merely to provide brief details and information which we hope will be of use to our clients. We recommend that our clients and prospective clients seek legal advice on BVI law in respect of their specific proposals before taking steps to implement them.
Before proceeding with the licensing and registration of a ship in the BVI, persons are advised to consult their tax, legal and other professional advisers in their respective jurisdictions.
