Where, and by whom, is your offshore company managed?
A comprehensive, “bullet-proof” package. It includes our in-house professional directorship, secretarial and business administration service, plus the shareholding service for enhanced confidentiality. The business administration service includes a BVI street address and fax number for the company, handling of commercial documents and correspondence, and a basic consultation for one year.

This package comprehensively deals with the most crucial tax planning question: “by whom, and from where is the company actually managed?”

In this setup, the company can demonstrate that it operates “at arm’s length” from its actual owner – as opposed to being technically operated from the owners’ home. This package is designed for the most demanding business engagements - for those clients, who can not afford to cut corners.

The $2490 BVI Premium Incorporation Package includes the following:

• BVI Business Company formation, all primary documents and corporate seal.
• The company registration fee to the BVI government.
• A set of copies of the primary documents certified by Notary and Apostille for international use.
• Registered agent service for one year.
• Corporate directorship service for one year.
• Business administration service for one year.
• Shareholder service for one year, provided by a BVI-based, licensed firm.
• Corporate directorship service for one year, provided by a BVI-based, licensed management firm.
• Delivery of the original corporate documents by courier.

(!) The bank account introduction is not included in this package. We recognize that many clients will prefer to open bank accounts with their own bankers, in jurisdictions of their own choice. Our professional fee for a bank account introduction is $500. A number of selected offshore banks is available.

The annual management fee for this package is $2200, starting from the 2nd year. This includes the $350 government annual license fee, registered agent, licensed director, shareholder and secretary, business administration services and basic consultation for 12 months.
A simple setup with an acceptable minimum of services. Main advantages: low cost and direct operation. Main disadvantage: you will be seen running the offshore company from your own home. (Hint: Your domestic government may not like it.)

This package is designed for those lucky individuals, who live and work in a country where they can afford to be seen as directly owning and managing their own offshore company. This setup presumes a direct, hands-on operation of the IBC by the company owner. (!) Note - if you live in, or bear a passport of a high-tax country with an aggressive and efficient tax revenue service , this setup may be unsuitable for you.

The $1250 BVI Basic Incorporation Package includes the following:

• BVI Business Company formation and all primary documents.
• The company registration fee to the BVI government.
• A set of copies of the primary documents certified by Notary and Apostille for international use.
• Registered agent service for one year.
• Delivery of the original corporate documents by courier.

The annual administration fees for this package, starting from the second year: $650.
This includes the $350 BVI government fee and the mandatory registered agent service.

(!) The bank account is not included in this package. We recognize that many clients will prefer to open bank accounts with their own bankers, in geographical proximity to their area of operation. If required, our professional fee for a bank account introduction is $500. A number of selected offshore banks is available.
