Marjorie Rawls Roberts, P.C. was established in 1999 to advise companies and individuals on tax and business issues in the US Virgin Islands.

We provide a wide range of tax-law services:

  • Tax planning—US Virgin Islands, international, US, and Central American.
  • Representation before the Virgin Islands Bureau of Internal Revenue and the Internal Revenue Service
    Estate planning.
  • Establishment and operation of US Virgin Islands exempt international insurers and exempt companies.

We also provide general corporate guidance, with a focus on business transactions and the application of federal securities laws to businesses in the US Virgin Islands. In addition, we handle real estate transactions for existing clients on the islands of St. John and St. Thomas. We also provide local counsel to several law firms and accounting firms based on the US mainland and elsewhere in the Caribbean.

Our clients span a variety of industries, including jewelry and watch manufacturers, hotels, fund managers, investment banking operations, investment advisors, hedge funds, management and consulting firms, family offices, internet-based businesses, telecommunications companies, financial institutions, major accounting firms, commercial water suppliers, real estate developers, timeshares, eco-resorts, restaurants, shopping centers, marine businesses, and tourist attractions. Many of our clients have global operations, and we have French and Arabic speakers on our team. Our attorneys travel regularly for business and can arrange to meet with prospective clients outside the US Virgin Islands upon appointment.

We are able to provide a multi-faceted approach for each client. For example, we can combine tax planning, including qualification for US Virgin Islands economic incentives, with business-entity selection and estate planning. We focus on each client’s unique needs, with the ability to think and plan strategically to meet them.
