Accounting Services for Your Offshore Companies
The BVI Mutual Assistance (Tax Matters) (Amendment) Act, 2012 states that it is mandatory
for for a company to keep reliable accounting records.
Reliable accounting records shall include the detail information on all fund movements
(moneys received and moneys transferred out by the company), duly supported by relevant documentation.
The accounting records should contain sufficient details to explain the company’s transactions and
to determine the financial position of the company with reasonable accuracy. The accounting records
should be kept for a minimum of five years from the date of the transactions.
Furthermore, the Registered Agent must maintain a written record of the physical address where the
accounting records and documentation are maintained each of the BVI Company.
BVI companies that fail to comply with the Act are liable to a fine of US$10,000 as stated in
Section 98 (2) of the BVI BC Act, 2004.

accounting records as detailed above.
