Business Company (BC)

The BVI derives over half of its revenue from licensing offshore companies and related services, establishing itself as a major global player in offshore financial services. Once characterized as a “tax haven,” the territory has actively addressed this perception by signing the Multilateral Convention on Mutual Assistance in Tax Matters in June 2013. Focusing on Asia-based clients, it now positions itself as a responsible international financial center and destination for tax planning.
