BVI company formation

key information

​After completing the company formation process, there are many factors one needs to keep in mind to maintain their company and ensure that everything runs efficiently:

  • There is no authorised capital requirement for a BVI company.

  • Corporations need to pay annual renewal fees which changes periodically.

  • Corporations are not entitled to share any information about the company’s directors, officers, owners or shareholders in any public records. The only company records that are made available to the public are the Articles of Association and Memorandum.

  • Corporations in the BVI are not required to keep annual records, but they are required to publish their annual financial statements and must be audited once a year by an independent auditor.

  • BVI companies are required to have annual general meetings, but it is not necessary to hold these meetings locally. They can happen anywhere in the world.
