Why choose Jersey?
  • 1
    Independence

    Jersey has a unique constitutional position. Although its allegiance is to the British Crown, it is not a part of the UK and is not represented in the British Houses of Parliament. The Island’s domestic autonomy has been preserved via charter and convention through 800 years of English history.

  • 2
    Stability

    Jersey has its own democratically elected Parliament, which has consistently maintained responsibility for domestic affairs including fiscal matters. Jersey also operates its own judicial system, which is based on common law principles.

  • 3
    Tax neutrality

    Jersey offers a tax-neutral environment, with no Capital Transfer Tax, Capital Gains Tax, Value Added Tax, Withholding Taxes or Wealth Taxes. This provides tax certainty and allows for fiscally efficient cross-border investment.

  • 4
    Regulation

    Jersey remains one of the best regulated international finance centres, a position that has been acknowledged by independent assessments from some of the world’s leading bodies including the OECD.

    Jersey is fully aligned with the highest standards of the third anti-money laundering EU Directive and was the first offshore finance centre to become a full signatory to the IOSCO Multilateral Treaty, an international benchmark for cross border co-operation between regulators.

    The Jersey authorities have signed 42 international tax agreements to date, which assist in building good quality business with those countries and are also a reflection of Jersey’s commitment to comply with international standards.

  • 5
    Substance

    Jersey has a visible financial industry in its capital, St. Helier, and employs a quarter of the local workforce. In over five decades, Jersey has developed a breadth and depth to its range of products and services that competing jurisdictions find difficult to match.

  • 6
    Legal system

    Jersey’s robust, modern and sophisticated legal framework is the source and foundation of Jersey’s finance industry. Developments and enhancements are continually being made to ensure flexibility and attractiveness to domestic and international markets.
