1. Bustling Life
Island living offers a refreshing change of scenery for landlocked city dwellers. Its community is friendly, safe and cosmopolitan – offering a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Stunning beaches, coastline and a picturesque countryside add to Jersey’s picturesque charm.
2. Low Taxation
Your wallet will love you. Jersey’s direct tax rates are among the lowest in Europe, for both individuals and companies – so you keep more of what you earn.

Working on the independent, well-regulated island means that doing business is easy. The island complies with international bodies such as the IMF, the OECD, and MONEYVAL whose vision and ambitions are supported by pro-business government.
