Luxury Convenience

06.07.20

A sense of belonging and community, pride taken in homes and public infrastructure, beautiful countryside and coastline, a stable, versatile and evolving economy, reliable and sustainable public services, a safe, convenient and satisfying way of life; all ingredients we are sure you would include if asked to describe a perfect home anywhere in the world. The very good news is that this lifestyle is available just 80 miles from the UK and 27 miles from France in Guernsey and is more easily accessible that you might think. “I wish we’d moved sooner” is a frequent comment from those who’ve made the discovery, taken the time to understand what it can mean for them and their family and come over.

Once you understand that you can rent or buy any Open Market home - and if you do the latter for £1.32M or more there’s a personal tax cap of £50,000 for your first four years – then the other pieces of this delightful picture soon come together. Income tax is a lonely tax in Guernsey; it’s companions - capital gains, inheritance, gifts, and value added taxes are all absent!

The standard of living is high.  The finance industry became dominant in the 80s, following in the footsteps of a once impressive growing industry and what is now a smaller, albeit attractive, visitor economy - the island has evolved and prospered as a successful specialist finance centre. And that success that has had so many positive spin-offs, including almost full employment and a host of related service sector industries. So, if you value your anonymity yet love to dine out in top quality restaurants, then Guernsey is definitely for you. The cuisine is exceptional, supported by fresh local produce from the land and sea, including the dairy products of the famous Guernsey cow.  If you love the outdoors there are all manner of pursuits; yachting, powerboats, ribs and paddle boards – Guernsey’s elements were made for these! If you enjoy walking, cycling and swimming, you can do all of these very safely, taking in stunning scenery as you go. If you like things to be handy then this where Guernsey scores 10/10; a business meeting over coffee; a girls’ get-together; a children’s party, summer festivals, sporting events or simply meeting new friends, then all of these can be nearby.  Nowhere takes long to get to - Guernsey is convenient with a capital C.
