Refreshingly Guernsey

09.10.20

Finding a wonderful new home in Guernsey is refreshingly simple. Guernsey is unique in having its own two-tier property market supporting those who would either rent or buy. Local Market properties can be occupied by people who are locally born or those holding an Employment Permit while Open Market properties are ideal for families and individuals relocating indefinitely from overseas.

There is an excellent choice of properties within Guernsey’s Open Market. Beachfront apartments, quaint cottages, country manor houses and modern masterpieces can all provide that perfect new home. Even on a small island, location remains a key consideration. The island’s 10 parishes all have their own unique character but wherever you choose you can be sure you’ll never be more than 20 minutes from the sea.

Guernsey has been very effective in managing the Covid-19 pandemic and life in the island has mostly returned to pre-Covid normality with very few restrictions. Inspired by this success, it is encouraging that the island’s property agents are very busy. Open Market property sales are comfortably keeping pace with 2019 and the Locate Guernsey team continues to receive interest from all over the world.

The island is an ideal home for families. Parents of young children love knowing that they can play safely on the beach and in the park and that if they are out of sight for a few minutes then it’s fine - a big revelation to recently arrived families! The ability to walk the streets, even late at night, without concerns for personal safety; not having to constantly think about the security of your home, or be concerned about where your car is parked are blessings which those of us who live here appreciate every day.

There is an active business community boasting global expertise. Guernsey is a self-governing jurisdiction that sets its own taxes; personal income tax is a flat 20% with caps; most businesses pay no corporation/business income tax; also capital gains, inheritance, gifts, and value added taxes are all absent! New residents who purchase an Open Market home for £1.32M or more can apply for a personal tax cap of £50,000 for the first four years.

The stable government and close community help make the island an ideal place to relocate to, either with a business, family or both. In addition to sunshine, relaxation, a great work/life balance and low taxes it offers genuine stability, security and safety – all providing simply a better life for you.
