Jersey tax rules

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.

The Island is very attractive from a tax perspective.

  • Only income is subject to tax
  • Standard rate of personal income tax is 20%
  • Special income tax rates for high value residents – 20% on first £725k of income, 1% on balance (Jersey real property income always 20%)
  • No capital gains tax
  • No inheritance tax
  • No gift tax
  • No wealth tax
  • Low corporate taxes (standard rate 0% – a small number of companies – not fund managers -pay tax at 10%/20%)
