Jersey takes note

Posted on

This was published in the Jersey Evening Post on 30 December (I only reproduce part, and only do that because I cannot find the article on their web site):

The article continues by quoting extensively from my blog before adding that:

I will look forward to that. But right now Jersey looks to be on the back foot. It's been there before of course, having been so almost continuously in its tax relationship with the EU from 2005 to 2012. This time it is different though: as the EU has made clear sanctions could be imposed in months unless Jersey gets its act together as it is now required to do.

I look forward to watching this progress with interest in 2018.

I rather hope Guernsey, the Isle of Man, Cayman, Bermuda and the BVI are also taking note.
