Extracts from commercial register of Guernsey

Schmidt & Schmidt provides extracts from the commercial register of Guernsey with a translation and an apostille.

Guernsey is an island in the English Channel, and one of the Crown dependencies, along with Jersey and Isle of Man. Queen Elizabeth II is represented here by the Lieutenant Governor. Local currency is the pound sterling. Guernsey is not a part of the European Union, but it has got the access to the single market.

Financial services are the core of the local economy, making up 37% of GDP and employing 19% of working population. Other important sectors are horticulture and tourism.

Due to its exceptionally low taxes, Guernsey is a popular offshore centre. At the same time, OECD does not blacklist it as a non-cooperative tax haven, but as a jurisdiction that does apply international taxation standards to an acceptable extent. In October 2014 Guernsey, along with 50 other jurisdictions, has joined the new global system of automated financial data exchange – Common Reporting Standard. Similar agreements were signed by Guernsey with USA and UK. By 2016 Guernsey has fully or partially applied 48 out of 49 FATF recommendations, which means high level of financial standards on the island.

Nowadays, Guernsey, among other Crown dependencies, is discussing the creation of public register of beneficial ownership by 2019. This law has been issued by the United Kingdom despite the criticism from the Guernsey authorities.

Business activities in Guernsey are regulated by, inter alia, the Companies (Guernsey) Law of 2008. The Guernsey business legislation is based on the British one.
