Why Relocate to Jersey?
Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands, situated 100 miles from the South Coast of England and 40 miles from the French Coast. An independent English-speaking territory with a mix of British and French cultures, the cosmopolitan aspect means business can be undertaken in most languages. It is also ranked as one of the worlds most renowned International finance centres.
Jersey is also known for its beaches, beautiful countryside, local produce and excellent cuisine, with specialist freshly caught seafood restaurants and a selection of Michelin Star venues.
The island of Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands. Although the Bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey are often referred to collectively as the Channel Islands, the “Channel Islands” are not a constitutional or political unit. Jersey has a separate relationship to its Crown from the other Crown dependencies of Guernsey and the Isle of Man, although all three Crowns are held by the monarch of the United Kingdom. It is not part of the United Kingdom, and has an international identity separate from that of the UK, but the United Kingdom is constitutionally responsible for the defence of Jersey. The Commission have confirmed in a written reply to the European Parliament in 2003 that Jersey is within the Union as a European Territory for whose external relationships the United Kingdom is responsible. Jersey is not fully part of the European Union but has a special relationship with it, notably being treated as within the European Community for the purposes of free trade in goods.
