Both Belize and the British Virgin Islands are two key jurisdictions in terms of offshore company benefits and advantages for investors. The two locations share a series of characteristics customary to these types of legal entities.
The British Virgin Islands or BVI remains one of the most respected offshore destinations, particularly because it is one of the oldest. Since its development, other offshore financial centers or tax havens have adopted and improved the business model used for a BVI company.
In most respects, the conditions for company formation are similar in Belize and BVI. A difference between Belize and the British Virgin Islands is that the latter does not allow for bearer shares. Both jurisdictions allow for a minimum number of shareholders and directors and do not impose taxes on company profits for offshore corporations. The BVI is preferred by investors who target specific types of business activities, such as opening an offshore hedge fund.
