British Virgin Islands
The BVI has recently released several important regulatory amendments to its financial services legislation which are applicable to BVI funds and their advisors.
Important filing deadlines as well as procedures for submission of information to the relevant authorities with regard to audited accounts, fund annual returns, record keeping, register of directors and AEOI.
Further to our previous updates, the BVI ITA, on 19 February 2019, published guidance notes on the CbCR requirements of entities that are resident in the BVI and updated guidance notes on the OECD's CRS.
