Jersey’s history and culture has resulted in a diverse and entrepreneurial community, open to every challenge and opportunity.  The jurisdiction’s main language is English, although most European languages are spoken and can be used for business transactions.

Jersey’s status as a Crown Dependency gives the jurisdiction constitutional rights of self-government and judicial independence. This offers both businesses and investors the benefits of an independent international finance centre which is close to the United Kingdom and mainland Europe.

Jersey is divided into 12 parishes. Each parish is presided over by the elected head of parish, the Connétable, on issues relating to civil matters and by the Rector on issues relating to ecclesiastical affairs.

The British pound (£) and Jersey pound (valued 1:1) form its retail currency, with all major currencies accepted for financial transactions.
