The British Virgin Islands

The British Virgin Islands (“BVI”) is a British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean Sea. The BVI is famous for its Business Companies Act, which takes after Delaware Law but with some minor adjustments to accommodate the fact that the Virgin Islands is a common law jurisdiction. The BVI Registry is one of the largest, with close to half a million active companies. Incorporation is quick, generally completed in less than 24 hours and does not require pre-approval. The law is flexible, yet provides the necessary protection of investment regardless of complexity as well as thorough chapters on fiduciary duties of directors. It is also confidential, since relevant information related with the directors and shareholders is not available for everyone to see and it is not subject to registration. It enjoys a stable government, whose executive authority is The Queen, but is exercised by the Governor of the BVI. The BVI has a professional and efficient judicial system, the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court, with a commercial division, especially competent for corporate and commercial matters. The ultimate court of appeal is the Privy Council in London. The BVI has Top Tier Law firms, accounting firms, and Trust practitioners with international background which facilitates execution of cross-border transactions. Finally, the BVI Business Companies Act is consistent and hasn’t changed much over the years, only to adjust to OECD recommendations, which in turn has elevated this jurisdiction to the OECD white list.
