Brexit and Jersey - what you need to know

As the UK limps towards another deferred Brexit date, businesses in Jersey must still consider how they may be affected by Brexit (if and when it happens) and be ready for all eventualities.

Since the referendum in 2016, Jersey's government and law makers have been taking steps to ensure that there is continuity and certainty during the Brexit process for both individuals and businesses in Jersey. The States of Jersey have been engaging with the UK government as it has developed its position over the last two and a half years. The island has tried to remain one step ahead by planning for a range of outcomes (including the UK leaving the EU without a negotiated deal)and for whatever results from the UK government's decisions and UK Parliament's deliberations.

Whilst Jersey has made preparations to mitigate any adverse impacts of Brexit (notably on trade in goods and services and on immigration) and to pursue any opportunities that are created as a result of Brexit, it is important that businesses in Jersey understand the changes and measures being adopted and how they may be affected, not least to enable them to explore the potential opportunities that Brexit may bring.

With this in mind, we have created a set of FAQs that provide a brief overview of how and why Brexit is relevant for Jersey (which is neither part of the UK nor a member state of the EU) and the key Brexit issues for the island and businesses.
