BVI - The Benefits
Why form a corporation in BVI?

Ease of operation, maintenance and control are facilitated by flexible corporate features. IBC's can re-quire and re-issue their own shares. Shares can be issued for a consideration other than cash, with or without par value, and be denominated in any currency. Only one subscriber and thereafter one shareholder is required. Single directorates are permitted. Shareholders' and directors' meetings are not confined to the British Virgin Islands. Books of account, records and minutes can be maintained elsewhere. There is no statutory requirement to hold annual general meetings. No distinction is made between public and private IBC's. Incorporations can take place within one or two days. Computerized access for Registered Agents to remotely reserve preferred names is now being finalized.
