Guernsey has a well-established legal system which has been enhanced over the years by the introduction of modern legislation covering all important aspects relating to the finance industry. This has resulted in Guernsey developing and maintaining a reputation as a well-regulated and attractive centre to conduct business. Guernsey's tax neutrality, its long history of financial and political stability, good banking and professional infrastructure, GMT time zone and proximity to the UK and Europe, have ensured that Guernsey is a first-rate, thriving, offshore financial centre. It was placed on the OECD G20 white list for offshore jurisdictions in 2009 which reflects its high standards of international compliance and transparency.
