Can the appointment of a registered agent be done in accordance with Section 92(4) of the BVI Business Companies Act?

No. Section 92(4) refers to a change in registered agent where there was a previous agent. Because former local companies were not required previously to have registered agents, this section does not apply. A function under "General Filings All" on the VIRRGIN system, for the appointment of a registered agent will be made available shortly. Until the function is available, appointments can be submitted manually to the Registry by submitting the new Form R203 which can be downloaded from the FSC's website.
