British Virgin Islands Company

The British Virgin Islands (BVI) are a British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean, to the east of Puerto Rico. The islands are geographically part of the Virgin Islands archipelago and are located in the Leeward Islands of the Lesser Antilles. BVI consist of the main islands of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke, along with over 50 other smaller islands and cays. About 15 of the islands are inhabited. The capital, Road Town, is on Tortola, the largest island, which is about 20 km long and 5 km wide. The islands had a population of about 28,000 at the 2010 Census, of whom approximately 23,500 lived on Tortola.

BVI have always been a popular choice for the location of offshore company registration and management due to the low company incorporation cost, no requirement for company secretary and company paid up capital, mature legal system (English Common Law), tax free policy, and a stable political and economic environment. BVI offshore companies incorporated under the IBC Act have always been a popular choice for businesses due to maximum security and privacy,  and are licensed to do business worldwide (except the BVI) tax free.
