The problem facing Channel Islands businesses

Businesses in the Channel Islands operate under an unusually large number of obligations and pressures, all of which have (or should have) material impact on data strategies and how they conduct day-to-day operations. Just some of the questions these obligations pose:

  • Are you GDPR compliant?
  • Does your data strategy undermine your corporate tax residency or economic substance requirements?
  • What are the impacts of HMRC vs Barclays Bank and HMRC v Laerstate on your business?
  • How do financial services regulations, or any other industry bodies’ requirements, oblige you to treat your data?
  • Does your strategy address data residency and privacy, foreign governments’ data access capabilities, and how cases such as Microsoft vs Ireland affect provider selection?

As for answers, there are literally dozens of differing opinions and rumours of what Channel Islands businesses can and cannot do with their data. And Calligo has heard them all.


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