Guernsey continues to see positive inward company migration trend

RELATED TOPICS​

Guernsey continues to see a growth in inward migration of companies after the best quarter of growth this year, according to the latest figures.

The Guernsey Registry, which is responsible for tracking migrations both in and out of the island, reports that 23 companies migrated to Guernsey during the third quarter of 2017. With just four companies migrating out, it represents a net inward migration of 19 companies moving their domicile to Guernsey in one quarter alone.
 
That means the net migration of companies to Guernsey in 2017 stands at 36, as at the end of Q3. The latest figures build on the positive results of 2016 when there were 83 company migrations to Guernsey and only 26 migrations out – signifying a net growth of 57.
 
Most companies migrating to Guernsey in Q3 came from Panama and BVI, but there were also migrations from the Bahamas, Gibraltar, Isle of Man, Liberia and Luxembourg – a spread that Alan Bougourd, Registrar at the Guernsey Registry, says is encouraging.
 
“We are continuing to see migrations from a wide range of jurisdictions including the EU, Central America, the Caribbean and British Crown Dependencies, with companies seeking the stability and quality of service on offer in Guernsey,” says Bougourd.
 
Guernsey Finance Chief Executive Dominic Wheatley (pictured), says stability is a key driver for companies migrating to the island.
 
“We are very pleased to see such positive figures but not surprised given the standards on offer in Guernsey,” he says. “The island has been a real beneficiary of a ‘flight-to-quality’ and this is something we are confident will continue thanks to the stability of the island’s business environment and quality of service companies experience in migrating here.”
