Choose BVI as tax country

We are thrilled to announce that Celery now supports BVI payrolls! Thanks to our collaboration with expert BVI payroll administrators and tax advisers, along with extensive development and testing, we have successfully added BVI as a tax country in Celery.

When you create a free trial account, you can add a BVI demo employer or you can create an employer yourself by simply navigating to the “Employer” section, click on “Add employer,” and select “BVI” as the tax country.

When it comes to BVI payrolls, Celery offers a range of tailored features and functionalities. Some of these include:

  1. Seamless integration with CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank: Celery provides a digital payment file specifically designed for easy processing with CIBC, ensuring swift and accurate payment transactions.
  2. Various employee payment schedules: In BVI payrolls, you can choose between weekly, bi-weekly, half a month, four-weekly, and monthly payment schedules. This makes it possible to use different payment schedules within one employer and ensure correct wage tax calculations and timely net payments.
  3. Comprehensive employee categorization: Celery offers 7 distinct employee categories that facilitate the correct application of taxes and social premiums. This ensures accurate reporting and compliance with BVI regulations.
