COMPANY STRUCTURE AND REGISTRATION PROCEDURES IN THE BVI


Is a BVI Business Company required to have an initial lump-sum of capital?

No. There are no minimum paid-capital requirements, and the BVI Business Company is not even required to state any amount of authorised or registered capital in its foundation documents. It can choose to do so, of course, if the business circumstances require. The company is only required to state how many shares it has in total (which allows to determine what percentage of the company is held by any particular shareholder), but there is no requirement to attach a fixed monetary value to each share.
