We are here to help

Over the years we have helped a number of people move to the island.

Key questions

The key tax and administrative questions are:

  • Can I move to Jersey?
  • How do I move to Jersey?
  • What taxes will I pay in Jersey?
  • Can I break residence where I currently live?
  • The tax and administrative questions are secondary. The most important question is whether you can see yourself and the family living in the Island. A relocation is only successful if you and the family are able to settle and can continue with your economic activities.

The Island operates restrictive rules in respect of the ownership and occupation of property.

On moving you also need to consider the local tax rules in Jersey as well as your home jurisdiction.

We have advised extensively on the UK residence rules over the years partly because of the number of people who have moved to ice – we do regularly work with UK advisers.

We can help you navigate:

Our approach

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

Moving can be a stressful experience. Our role is to remove the stress and keep things simple and understandable for you. We will be available when it is convenient for you.

We 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.
