Taxation

Guernsey has its own system of taxation. There are no Capital Gains, Inheritance or Value Added Taxes, and Income and Corporation Taxes payable in Guernsey are generally lower than in the United Kingdom.

Guernsey has a system of income tax under which deductions are made from employment income [ETI scheme]. The standard rate for individuals is 20p in the pound with a number of personal allowances available.

Every person working in Guernsey has to register with the Income Tax office. At the time of registration you will be given a tax number and coding notice to maintain for your own records, along with a copy to be handed in to your employer.
