The island of Guernsey (the second largest Channel Island) forms part of the British Isles but is separate from the United Kingdom and the European Union (EU). Guernsey has an area of only 24.3 square miles and a population of approximately 62,000. The island is situated in the Gulf of St Malo, approximately 30 miles west of the French Cherbourg Peninsula. Although foreign affairs and defence are dealt with by the UK, Guernsey is self-governing and has its own parliament, known as the States of Guernsey.
Guernsey enjoys a special relationship with the EU which excludes Guernsey from most of the effects of the Treaty of Rome. There are, however, special arrangements under Protocol 3 for the free movement of manufactured and agricultural goods between Guernsey and the EU member states. Guernsey has a flourishing finance industry with a maximum income tax rate of 20% and no capital gains, inheritance or withholding taxes.
Guernsey is in the same time zone as the UK, and frequent air links to London and other UK airports permit one-day business trips, and for those who wish to stay longer there is a wide range of top-quality hotels and restaurants available to meet all the needs of the business traveller.
