The British Channel Islands are self-governing dependencies of the Crown, however, they are not part of the United Kingdom, nor are they part of the European Union. The Channel Islands are identified as one of the world’s leading offshore financial centers and have in recent years placed themselves as e-commerce hub of excellence.

Alderney, the third biggest of the Channel Islands and one of the constitutive islands of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, is about 8 miles from France and 60 miles from mainland Britain. It has its own government, legislature, and company laws and functions with the same modern banking, security, and investment laws as Guernsey. The Guernsey Financial Services Commission is a legal body accountable for guaranteeing that the finance industry on Guernsey and Alderney is well managed. Alderney is subject to the provisions of Guernsey taxation laws.
