Last week Locate Guernsey was the headline sponsor for the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners – STEP Annual Tax Conference in London.

The event, which took place at the Park Plaza Hotel, boasted over 700 attendees, speakers from Maurice Turnor Gardner LLP, Burges Salmon LLP and Lexis Nexis amongst others, and a variety of hot topics. All of this promised to make an exciting event of great opportunity to Locate Guernsey and we were not disappointed.

Locate Guernsey was represented by Andrew Carey, Head of Locate Guernsey, and Edward Stone, Strategic Residence Consultant. Reflecting on the event Andrew Carey said:

“Putting the Guernsey name and the Locate Guernsey brand in front of more than 300 wealth management professionals was a great promotional opportunity and one that was important to exploit.”

“In terms of engagement, there were good levels of interest in the Island and in particular the straightforward nature of how the Open Market can offer such a quick and hassle-free route into our wonderful Island.”

“It’s likely Locate Guernsey will be working further with STEP in the future as that organisation is so well connected to the private wealth advisory community across the world”

The STEP Annual Tax Conference and, more generally, working with STEP is good for Locate Guernsey. Being at the forefront of issues which are important to our potential clients gives us insight into their needs. Most importantly it allows to show what Guernsey has to offer to their trusted intermediaries.

Guernsey has an excellent tax environment with no Inheritance, Capital Gains, Value Added or Corporation Tax in most cases. A flat rate of Income Tax at 20% is also attractive.
