1.Where are the British Virgin Islands?

The British Virgin Islands (abbreviated as “BVI”), often known as the Virgin Islands, are a British overseas territory in the Caribbean, east of Puerto Rico. The islands are part of the Virgin Islands archipelago, with the United States Virgin Islands and the Spanish Virgin Islands making up the rest.

The British Virgin Islands (BVI) are made up of the main islands of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke, as well as more than 50 smaller islands and cays (about 15 of the islands are resident).

Due to BVI Government Policy, BVI appears to be one of the most attractive investment destinations globally and is named “Offshore Tax Incentives”.

2. What is an International Company in BVI?

Offshore companies are sometimes known as International Business Companies (“IBCs”). IBCs are a popular choice for overseas individuals and corporations looking to form a company in the British Virgin Islands.

IBC is a tax-exempt private corporation that can be used for nearly any international economic activity and has a flexible organizational form (is not burdened by excessive reporting and record-keeping requirements). Furthermore, the IBC maintains tight confidentiality safeguards (which include the identity of the owner, director, and shareholders).

Offshore corporations gained a foothold in the offshore services industry after the British Virgin Islands International Business Companies Ordinance was passed in 1984. Furthermore, the BVI is by far the most popular Offshore Tax Incentives, with over 600,000 total incorporations and over 5000 new firms formed every month.

3. What are the key benefits of a BVI offshore company?

Furthermore, the tax exemption applies to all dividends, interests, rents, royalties, compensations, and other payments paid by a corporation, as well as all capital gains realized on any of the corporation’s shares, debt obligations, or other instruments. The Certificate of Tax Exemption will be issued to BVI companies that are eligible to be exempt from paying taxes.
