Specialist in British Virgin Islands (BVI) Offshore Company Incorporations
Does a company search at the BVI Companies Registry show the directors and shareholders information?
No. A company search at the BVI Companies Registry does Not show the director and shareholder information of the BVI offshore company.
The director and shareholder information is collected and held privately. This information is not available when a public company search is done at 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 publicly 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 day.
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.
