Offshore Company Land NewsLetters?


I have an offshore company registered in the BVI that is struck off. Can I incorporate a new company with the same name?

No. You cannot use the same company name for a new BVI company. You can use the same company name in another offshore jurisdiction if the name is available for incorporation there. If you are only interested in incorporating a BVI offshore company then an option would be to register a company with a similar name. 

You would have to adjust the company name by adding or removing a word or two. Some names can be rejected by the BVI Companies Registry if it is too similar to another BVI company name. The cost to restore a BVI company can be significant depending on the number of years the company has been struck off and the cost of a new BVI company or a new company in another offshore jurisdiction is generally a lot cheaper, so many clients try the cheaper option.

If you have any questions about the above, send us an email.
