Alderney is the third largest of the Channel Islands with a population of 2,000. It is just 70 miles off the south coast of the UK and eight miles from the Normandy coast of France. St. Anne, the island’s town dates back to the end of William IV’s reign and enjoys a French influence with its cobbled streets. Alderney also boasts a fine harbour within its 3,000 ft Victorian breakwater, and an airport with three runways (two grass).
Alderney is open to both business and retirement – from back-office operations, relocation and start-up businesses served by ideal broadband and connectivity, to safe stress-free enjoyment of life. It is a British Crown Dependency with its own President, Government and Judiciary.
It is within the Bailiwick of Guernsey which includes Sark and Herm. Guernsey, the largest of the islands with a population of about 60,000, is just a 10 minute flight away.
Alderney as part of the Bailiwick of Guernsey falls within the jurisdiction of the States of Guernsey Revenue Service for tax matters and within the jurisdiction of the Guernsey Financial Services Commission (GFSC) for regulatory matters.
Both the Guernsey tax authorities and the GFSC follow an open door policy and are keen to support individuals and firms wishing to live or operate within the Bailiwick. The GFSC is most anxious to consider innovative proposals.
Income Tax is Alderney’s only tax, apart from tax on rental income from Bailiwick sources. There is no Capital Gains Tax, no Inheritance Tax or Value Added Tax. Under a generous dispensation operative until 2025, income tax on worldwide income is capped at £50,000. Social Security contributions range from 3.8% of taxable income for the over-65s to 11% for the self-employed.
The tax authorities have entered into a number of double tax agreements. Their aim is to enable foreign taxes to be offset against local tax, subject to the terms of the Agreements in question.
