Penalty for improper accounting

Companies with registration in Belize, the British Virgin Islands, Panama and Seychelles run the risk of getting penalty for improper accounting. Consider each country separately.


If a violation is discovered during the audit, a fine of up to 100 $ is imposed on the company. If the company continues to violate this requirement, it is forced to pay an additional 25 $ each day after imposing a basic fine.


The fine is 1000 $. Each subsequent day of violation of accounting rules will cost the company 100 $.

British Virgin Islands

In case of non-compliance with the rules, the company will be fined 50000 $.


Compared to the rest of the above countries, the penalties in Belize in relation to companies that incorrectly conduct accounting are the most severe.

  • The company may be excluded from the register of business entities.
  • The fine can reach 10000 US dollars.
  • The company may be deprived of a license.
  • Supervisory authorities may revoke a certificate of registration.

Currently, the proper conduct of accounting is a prerequisite, since today conducting business without records is impossible.

Proper accounting provides the company with the following benefits:

  • No problems with international and local laws.
  • Facilitated procedure for opening accounts with foreign and local banks.
  • Lack of penalties.
  • Facilitation of tax payments.
  • Facilitating a change in the location of the business entity.
  • Evidence of the legality of the source of profit and prevention of freezing accounts.
