Global Guernsey: Continuing Market Access in an Uncertain World

Following the end of the implementation period, the UK, like Guernsey and other Crown Dependencies, is considered as a third country in relation to the European Union.
Whilst Brexit has led to uncertainty to many, Guernsey's offering of continuity, certainty and stability will resonate strongly - especially for those in the finance sector. Not only does Guernsey enjoy a strong relationship with UK as a Crown Dependency, its long history as a third country means Guernsey has developed its own legislation concerning tax and transparency. These have been assessed by other competent authorities and Brexit will not impact this.
