Non-Profit Organisations

Non-profit organisations (NPOs) are recognised for the vital role that they play in communities around the world. While most NPOs are used for legitimate purposes, they can also be used to facilitate illicit activities. The NPO sector globally has been identified as one that is vulnerable to activities of money laundering and terrorist financing.


The Non-Profit Organisations Act, 2012 (the NPO Act) came into effect on 1st January, 2013. The NPO Act seeks to bring NPOs inline with international standards by creating systems for NPOs to be monitored from anti-money laundering (AML) and counter financing of terrorism (CFT) perspectives.


Under the NPO Act, all NPOs operating within the Virgin Islands are required to be registered with the Non-Profit Organisation Registration Board. Details of the registration process and guidelines on the NPO Act can be obtained here or from the Ministry of Health and Social Development.
