Establishing a company in Jersey
Jersey is an island located near the French coast of Normandy; it is part of the Channel Islands and a British Crown dependency. It is considered a sovereign parliamentary democracy subject to the UK constitutional monarchy, although it is self-governing, does not belong as an outright territory to the UK or the EU, and only functions with the guidance of the Queen. This fact, along with few significant sources of revenue, allows its government to offer attractive tax policies to foreign companies. The official language is English, and the registration process simple and effective in comparison to other countries.
The overall area of the island is 118 km2 and it has 98,000 inhabitants. It is a pleasant and particularly appealing place for tourists, and visitors can enjoy the diverse and extensive marine culture, pastoral villages and towns, and a moderate climate. English is commonly spoken, although French is the island’s second official language and is also used. The central city and capital is St. Helier. In terms of cuisine, the traditional Jersey menu includes a lot of seafood, with local specialties taking their inspiration from both English and French traditions, resulting in a diverse and interesting palate.
