Jersey Tax Rules

Tax system

Jersey is not part of the UK and has its own tax system. The rules are different to the UK. Prior to moving to the Island advice should be taken to ensure that your situation is considered.

Our approach

We will listen to you and will advise you on the basis of your situation. Everyone’s situation is different and we provide individual solutions. We will take the time to understand your situation.

We usually work on the basis of fixed fees – we have done enough of this type of work to give very accurate quotes and do not believe in surprises. We see this work as the start of a relationship not a single transaction. We want to work with you for a long time.

You will be dealing with an experienced principal. Our tax team is led by Garry Bell. He is a very experienced UK and Jersey tax adviser (27 years) and has spent most of his career in a ‘big 4’ tax accountancy firm environment. He was a Director and led the private client practice in Jersey and Guernsey for a number of years in one of the ‘big 4’ accountancy firms.

Garry has helped a number of businesses and individuals and businesses move to Jersey from all industry sectors and backgrounds.
