Jersey holding companies, trusts and limited partnerships have been used by private individuals, family offices and institutional investors over many years for property investment. The industry and structures involved in this work in Jersey has been around since the early 70’s, but why use Jersey today?
Certainly from the outset the key reason was to establish a tax efficient structure however that has changed and many people now using Jersey do so more for the purpose of asset protection, succession and dynastic planning as well as philanthropy. This makes sense because the Island is blessed with a host of experienced specialist professionals who must adhere to one of the most robust offshore regulatory regimes in the world.
There is plenty of evidence of this but a tough regulatory regime is not for everyone of course and, it is also relatively expensive to conduct business in Jersey. This said, it is much more expensive to get it wrong and have to move later!
Jersey has a long standing and truly tested trusts regime and a more recently establish Foundation product which, being very flexible (it permits much broader founder influence), is attracting a great deal of interest both in the UK, Europe and further afield particularly in the civil law jurisdictions.
Asset protection is without doubt an increasingly significant concern to many, and Jersey offers a number of solutions from a tried and tested domicile run by seasoned professionals.
Jersey Corporate Services Limited can guide you through the myriad offers and help select a ‘partner service provider’ of excellence. Ensuring a long standing match which takes into account much more than simply qualifications, pedigree and skill sets, JCSL will also consider amongst other things: local knowledge, culture, staff, reputation, media reports, language, regulatory background and local news.
