What are the Tax arrangements in Guernsey ?
Thanks to its jurisdictional independence from the United Kingdom, Guernsey’s own government controls the island’s laws, budget and levels of taxation. Guernsey is NOT a tax haven.
The island was in fact one of the first jurisdictions to be placed on the OECD’s “white list” of jurisdictions complying with global standards for tax co-operation and exchange of information. Guernsey has a formidable reputation for being well regulated and is highly respected across the world.
The tax situation for Guernsey residents is as follows:
- 20% Income Tax (with generous allowances)
- NO Capital Gains Tax
- NO VAT or Goods and Sales Tax
- NO Inheritance Tax
- NO Wealth Tax
Guernsey also offers HNW individuals the opportunity to benefit from a tax cap (currently £110,000 on non-Guernsey source income and £220,000 on worldwide income).
