IBC Guide

Incorporating an IBC

BVI is a popular offshore jurisdiction. It has favorable business regulation, a prosperous economy and stable political environment. An International Business Company (IBC) in BVI provides privacy and asset protection and can be wholly exempted from BVI tax on its income provided that your IBC has no business activities in the British Virgin Islands.

Company Name

No company can be incorporated which has a name which is identical to another company incorporated in the British Virgin Islands or so closely resembles the name that it could be deceptive or mixed up.

The name of the company must include one of the following words or its abbreviation Limited (Ltd), Corporation (Corp.), Incorporated (Inc.) and Societe Anonyme (S.A) or similar.
