Guernsey

Guernsey has a well-established legal and regulatory system which has been enhanced over the years by the introduction of modern legislation covering all important aspects of the finance industry. This has resulted in Guernsey developing and maintaining a reputation as a robust, well-regulated, first-class finance centre in which to conduct business. Guernsey’s tax neutrality, its long history of financial and political stability, good banking and professional infrastructure, GMT time zone and proximity to the UK and Europe, have ensured that Guernsey remains a leading offshore financial centre. It was placed on the OECD G20 white list for offshore jurisdictions in 2009, which reflects its high standards of international compliance and transparency.

Intertrust Guernsey provides a wide range of services for private clients and corporate clients alike, with an emphasis on personal trust and stable, long-term business relationships. Our skilled staff are enthusiastic and highly qualified and pride themselves on providing the service our clients require.

The Island is widely recognised as one of the world’s premier international finance centres. A dependency of the British Crown but with its own legislature, it does not form part of the United Kingdom nor is it a member of the European Community. Guernsey covers approximately 24 square miles and is situated in the Gulf of St Malo, 60 miles southwest of Britain and about 30 miles west of Northern France. It has a population of just over 60,000 people. With its relaxed life style, mild climate and entrepreneurial spirit, Guernsey is an attractive jurisdiction through which both people and corporates can structure or relocate their financial affairs. Guernsey is in the same time zone as London and is English speaking. It has frequent air links to London and other United Kingdom airports which enable one-day business trips. The Island has no capital gains, inheritance, wealth or sales taxes and neither does it have VAT. There is a flat standard rate of income tax for Guernsey resident individuals of 20% with tax capping for higher earners in certain circumstances.
