Why Jersey?

  • Global standing

    Jersey is one of the world's leading International Finance Centres. Reliability, political and economic stability, and sophisticated law have kept Jersey at the forefront of global finance for over 50 years.

  • Legal framework

    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.

  • Time zone

    It is in a central time zone that covers the closing of business in India and Greater China and the opening of business in the USA.

  • Talent

    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.

  • Business conditions

    Jersey has been able to deliver the ideal business conditions for international finance bolstered by its unique constitutional position.

  • Constitutional position

    Although its allegiance is to the British Crown, it is not a part of the UK. The island’s domestic autonomy has been preserved via charter and convention through 800 years of English history. As a result of that unbroken constitutional position, Jersey proudly possesses its own democratically elected Parliament, which has consistently maintained responsibility for domestic affairs including fiscal matters.

  • Taxation policy

    Jersey offers a tax-neutral environment, with no Capital Transfer Tax, Capital Gains Tax, Value Added Tax, Withholding Taxes or Wealth Taxes.

  • Anti-money laundering regulations

    Jersey is fully aligned with the highest standards of the third anti-money laundering (AML) 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.
