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.
