Non-residents buying property in Jersey

Jersey has special rules with regards to individuals purchasing on-island property. There are some properties that can be purchased by non-islanders, under a ‘Non-qualified’ status, however the majority of properties fall under ‘Qualified’ status, requiring the purchaser to either be ‘licensed’ or ‘entitled’, as assigned by Jersey’s Population Office.

To be awarded a license to purchase ‘qualified’ listed properties without having to first relocate or establish an on-island business, the individual’s income tax contribution must be a minimum of £125,000. With the top tax rate being set at 20%, this would require the individual to have taxable income of £625,000, qualifying them as a High Value Resident. Note that all income over and above £625,000 is taxed at 1%, Jersey has no Capital Gains or Inheritance taxes, corporate tax is 0% and Jersey's Goods and Services tax (VAT/GST) is 5% on all goods and services.
