What is the maximum number of shares my offshore company can issue?  
Staff writer:
October 11, 2012

The maximum number of shares that the offshore company is authorized to issue is stated in the Memorandum of Association of the company. There is no requirement to issue all of the authorized shares. The maximum number of shares in the offshore company can be specified by you at the time of registration of the company or at a time in the future by amending the Memorandum of Association of the company. 

In the BVI the default maximum number of shares authorized to be issued by the offshore company is 50,000. If you want more than 50,000 authorized shares the BVI Companies Registry's registration fee and annual renewal fee increases significantly. Choosing a maximum below the 50,000 shares will Not decrease or increase these government fees.
