Guernsey

Relocating to Guernsey

ON THIS PAGE
Contact us

Living in Guernsey is a popular choice for businesses, their leading individuals and families, who can enjoy the perfect work-life balance.

The Bailiwick of Guernsey in the Channel Islands has a well-established legal and regulatory system. Modern legislation has enhanced all important aspects of the finance industry over the years. This has maintained Guernsey's reputation as a robust, well-regulated, first-class finance centre in which to conduct business.

Guernsey's tax neutrality, long history of financial and political stability, good banking, professional infrastructure and proximity to the UK and Europe means the island remains a leading offshore financial centre. Its business-friendly environment has no corporation tax, with an income tax of 20%.

Ogier has all the tools and knowledge to assist you in relocating to Guernsey with to-the-point legal and fiduciary advice.

Relocating your business to Guernsey

Ogier assists high-net-worth individuals considering a move offshore.

Whether you need help with business or fund manager relocation, or both, Ogier's multi-disciplinary relocations team can guide you through moving to Guernsey from the UK. Part of our Local Legal Services team, they advise on establishing substance, taking you through each stage of the business lifecycle.

Relocating your family to Guernsey

Quality of lifestyle is another key factor for relocating to the beautiful island of Guernsey with its stunning beaches and close proximity to the UK and France.

If you’re moving with family, it’s important to understand how easy it is for them to join you. Once you arrive in your new home, how simple is it to buy a house, or start a business? What’s the education system like? How’s the healthcare? You will also need to understand how the move impacts on your overall tax and reporting obligations. Are there any local taxes that you need to consider?

Ogier can advise on all of the above. We can get you started with advice on Guernsey property, (including open market property) Guernsey immigration, or Guernsey residence. You can even extend your relationship with us to our Private Wealth team, who can manage the affairs of wealthy Jersey residents.

We work alongside the governing bodies responsible for inward investment, as well as other agencies who will guide you through your move, including Locate Guernsey, whether it be business, personal or both.
