Anguilla Enacts Netting Legislation
The Netting Act, 2006 came into force on October 19, 2006 and now provides certainty for those seeking to net against Anguillan counterparties.

One of the aims of the BVI Insolvency Act (“the Act”) is to bring certainty to the insolvency regime in the BVI, including time limits for compulsory winding up procedures. In two recent cases the High Court gave a clear message that time limits will be strictly applied, even where this means a BVI company is then subject to a liquidation order.

Harneys Corporate Recovery Services Guides to The Insolvency Act 2003 - Part 1
The Insolvency Act 2003 is the BVI’s all-encompasses insolvency law that deals with both companies and individuals, although none these guides will deal with bankruptcy and issues relating to individuals. As its name suggests, the Act only deals with regimes for insolvencies such as the liquidation of insolvent companies, and regimes for solvent companies are outside its scope. Thus, voluntary liquidations of solvent companies continue to be governed by the Companies Act
