Jersey eGaming, the group of companies which provide services to the eGaming sector in Jersey, Channel Islands, will once again be joined by Commissioners and the Chief Executive of its regulatory body, the Jersey Gambling Commission, at ICE , London in February 2018.

Jersey is recognised for its robust infrastructure as a result of its well-regulated financial services industry and the eGaming sector is delighted to continue the standards. Commenting, Jason Lane, CEO of Jersey Gambling Commission said "We have a highly competitive licensing regime in place to make Jersey a very attractive destination for eGaming businesses and we are pleased to welcome in new eGaming businesses who meet our high regulatory and compliance standards."

The Jersey eGaming stand will be N8-249 and the partners present will include Jersey Gambling Commission, Carey Olsen offshore law firm, Calligo cloud hosting, Cavendish, JT hosting and telecoms, SMP corporate service providers, Sure International, Think Gaming consultancy and investment services and Twelve40 lottery and instant win platform.

Spokesman for Jersey eGaming, Marcus Pallot, partner at Carey Olsen, said, "This year Jersey eGaming will have nine partners which demonstrates Jersey's commitment to being a leading jurisdiction for eGaming companies to establish a presence.  We are delighted to have the support of our regulator and our government in taking our offering forwards".

Jersey has significant advantages over other jurisdictions and is confident that it has greater appeal.

Jersey has a single B-2-C licence (£15,000) and/or a single B-2-B licence (£10,000) designed to capture all commercial gambling activity and which permits ancillary business.

Jersey does not require staff or specific services to be located on Island, with the exception of some data hosting and a locally incorporated company to hold the licence, and the government, through Locate Jersey  and Digital Jersey will provide assistance to operators wishing to establish part of their operations on Island.

Jersey’s tax-neutral environment provides financial certainty as there is:

No Gaming Duty

No Capital Transfer Tax

No Capital Gains Tax

No Value Added Tax (VAT)

No Withholding Taxes

No Stamp duty on trading company share transfers

No Wealth Taxes.

As a base for business, Jersey has a reputation that is second to none.
