British Virgin Islands (BVI) BC Offshore Company

British Virgin Islands Offshore Company Overview

The British Virgin Islands first enacted legislation for the incorporation of International Business Companies Act in 1984.

One of the main reasons for their popularity as a jurisdiction has to be the simple legislation and fairly low costs. The BVI government has strengthened legislation to prohibit the formation of offshore banks on its territory which has in return successfully curtailed money laundering activities.

The BVI’s modern and flexible legislation has led to its status as the most popular offshore location.


Why choose BVI?
