does Not show the director and shareholder information of the BVI offshore
The director and shareholder information is collected and held privately by the
BVI Registered Agent of the BVI company. This information is not available when
a public company search is done because the information is not held by the BVI Companies Registry.
However, there are some situations where the information on the director and
shareholder is available. This situation can arise if the director of the BVI
company requests that the Register of Directors and Shareholders be filed with
the BVI Companies Registry. Anyone doing a company search at the BVI Companies
Registry would now be able to view the information.
Another way to get the information is through legal action. It is the more
costly and time consuming option but may be the only option if you wanted the
information. And depending on the case you make for the release of the
information, you may (or may not) get the information at the end of the
A BVI company search will show who is the current BVI Registered Agent of the
company. That would be who you first contact about the issue you have with the
BVI offshore company.
