Tax call: Jersey will not act in isolation

Jersey Evening Post has reported that both Jersey and Guernsey have opposed the move, saying that to sign up to the EUSD before their competitors could damage the finance industry.

Jersey’s current position is that it will do so when everyone else does – when there is a ‘level playing field’ – but the report states that Jersey should get on with it, and calls on the UK to put pressure on other countries to sign up too.

A "level playing field" ? This is the concept that seems to have been launched by Luxembourg, you know the jurisdiction where economic and financial crime does not exist according to officials and bankers but was ranked number 2 on the Financial Secrecy Index. "The smooth functioning of the internal market should not be forgotten and we must ensure there is a level playing field for the principal financial centres.” , Luc Frieden said late October.
