BVI companies activity and corporate administration services by omcgroup.com? The main advantages of registering an offshore company in the British Virgin Islands are as follows: Tax exemption is legal in the BVI and the jurisdiction applies the territorial taxation system. This means that no taxes are due if the resident company does not make any income in the territory of the BVI. The application of this taxation system is going to continue in the foreseeable future while some other offshore jurisdictions are increasing the tax burden on business companies registered there.

Continuation: The BVI BC Act establishes that a company, which desires to continue its operations under the jurisdiction of the BVI, will have to file satisfactory evidence that the law of the foreign country allows the migration of the company. Economic Substance Act: The BVI (“the British Virgin Islands”), along with other major offshore jurisdictions, introduced the Economic Substance Law. The BVI Economic Substance (Companies and Limited Companies) ACT, 2018 came into effect on January 1, 2019. Companies incorporated as of January 1, 2019, must comply immediately with the law. The transition period extended until June 30, 2019, to entities established before January 1, 2019. This in response to the various efforts of the European Union (“EU”) and the Organization for the Economic Cooperation and Development (“OECD”) to improve fiscal transparency. Corporate Requirements: Name: BC names must contain the words Corporation, Incorporated, Sociedad Anónima, Societé Anonyme, Limited, or their abbreviations. Chinese names together with their English translation can be registered in the BVI. Numbers are permitted as part of the company name as well as foreign characters.

Offshore companies operate according to the local regulations and law acts of where they are incorporated. Normally, investors choose a foreign jurisdiction that has more favorable policies than their home countries. Then, they set up a company and start a business there in order to enjoy the benefits from such policies. For instance, if you opened and managed your company in Australia, its worldwide income would be subject to the corporate tax rates from 25% to 30% (depending on the business size). However, if you registered a company in Hong Kong, its income would only be taxed from 8.25% form 16.5%. On top of that, the income that is earned outside of Hong Kong can be completely exempted from local tax.
