The SVG Authorities Have Introduced Name Changes for Existing and New Company Registrations
In 2020, the St. Vincent and the Grenadines authorities chose to amend the existing naming convention for registered companies. IBC companies no longer exist and instead have been replaced with Business Companies, often abbreviated as BC.
In addition, the SVG authorities introduced a new company, known as an LLC. For all intents and purposes the LLC has effectively displaced the formerly known IBC. We have made the decision to continue to refer to IBC companies, mostly because this name has been used for so long to identify these firms.
