BVI Financial Services Commission Operations Update #3


BVIFSC Operations Update

The BVI Financial Services Commission business continuity systems are in place in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Maria and are working well.  Commission systems are functional and the VIRRGIN online service for the Registry of Corporate Affairs is fully operational.  All Company Registry data remains entirely secure.  The Registry of Corporate Affairs is operating limited hours as the territory recovers.  The Registry will be open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and industry are able to make deposits on accounts, full BVI BCA filings and company searches.

Commission services which require the personal involvement of registry staff may take longer than usual to deliver in the short term.  We are grateful for your patience while we work to restore services to normal.

We gratefully acknowledge and appreciate the many messages of support for the Commission, its staff and the territory.  The financial services sector can be assured of the resilience of our systems.  Our customers and all who deal with the BVI may similarly be assured of our continued determination to deliver them an excellent service.
