The problem facing Channel Islands businesses

The Channel Islands is one of the most complex jurisdictions for data-reliant businesses.

Businesses in the region operate under an unusually large number of obligations and pressures, all of which seem to have material impact on Channel Islands businesses’ data strategies and how they operate.

  • GDPR
  • Corporate tax residency and economic substance requirements
  • TIEAs and the impacts of HMRC vs Barclays Bank and HMRC v Laerstate
  • Financial services regulations
  • Data residency and privacy, and how cases such as Microsoft vs Ireland affect provider selection

There are literally dozens of rumours of what Channel Islands businesses can and cannot do because of these various obligations – including whether cloud can be used, or whether certain approaches undermine tax residency. And Calligo has heard them all.

With so much ambiguity, how can any business be 100% certain of its data strategy, its protections, vulnerabilities and data privacy – or even the promises it makes to its clients? It seems impossible to unravel. Until now.

Long-awaited clarity

For the first time, a comprehensive, easy-to-understand guide to building your data strategy and using cloud technologies in the Channel Islands is being launched.

It considers every data obligation, and includes exclusive input from Channel Islands regulators and industry bodies, HMRC, national data privacy authorities and lawyers to provide definitive clarity on how to build a safe, secure and forward-thinking data strategy in the Channel Islands.

Join us on the 3rd December 2019 in St Helier for the launch of the data strategy guide, and to hear a live discussion of the insights from a panel of experts.

We will release a full agenda, the names of speakers and the contributors to this research over the coming weeks. in the meantime, please register your interest in the event using the form below.
