Offshore relocations - moving your family to the Channel Islands

The Channel Islands are a beautiful and secure location offering an ideal base for families and businesses.

The traditional arguments made for relocating to the Channel Islands used to revolve around unspoiled beaches, sunshine, great restaurants, golf courses and low tax rates. Those arguments still hold true, but more and more the things that are swaying people towards Jersey and Guernsey are about the high quality of lifestyle, healthcare and education, strong and reliable travel links, a thriving entrepreneurial culture and the availability of quality property.

The process of moving offshore needs specialist advice, which is why our relocation teams are called in to assist on the residency process, wealth structuring, and buying property - as well as being able to guide clients to trusted contacts in the property, tax and banking fields for expert bespoke advice.
