Legal 500 Doing Business in Gibraltar

Contributed by Hassans

Doing Business in Gibraltar graphic

Gibraltar combines strong economic growth and a favourable tax regime with a warm, Mediterranean climate and vibrant lifestyle. It enjoys a solid global reputation for stability and efficiency with robust infrastructure and prudent regulation. Gibraltar’s small size and close-knit community delivers considerable speed to market with easy accessibility to key decision makers in the jurisdiction. For these reasons, and many more, Gibraltar hosts several major corporations spanning a wide variety of industries from insurance to gaming, property to crypto, and is the jurisdiction of choice for international businesses looking to establish a strategic European presence.

Legal market overview

Shipping and financial services, including online gaming and insurance, continue to drive Gibraltar’s economy and firms attract a steady stream of work in these areas. Distributed ledger technology (DLT) and initial coin offering (ICO)-related work is growing as firms develop their fintech practices and the Gibraltar Stock Exchange and the regulator are supportive – the new DLT regulatory regime came into effect in January 2018. Firms work closely with the government in the gambling and cryptocurrency spaces and are involved in discussions and consultations on legislation changes.

Private client practices remain strong with Category 2 and High Executive Possessing Specialist Skills (HEPSS) routes offering attractive low-tax options to wealthy individuals. Hassans’ size and range of experience gives the firm an advantage in several areas. Isolas LLP, TSN Barristers & Solicitors and Triay & Triay are other key names in the market. Ramparts has particular experience in the gaming sector.

  • International Tax Planning Association Journal – Madrid 19-20 March 2012 – Vol XII Number 3

    When we talk about Gibraltar and the EU perspective, we really are talking about a defining element of what has been driving Gibraltar over the last twenty-five or thirty years. Our membership of the European Union is not something that has been incidental and has not had a dramatic impact on Gibraltar; it has been very important in the direction that Gibraltar has taken over that period of time. Gibraltar - as you know - is attached to Southern Spain. Gibraltar and its position in the European Union is quite a fascinating study and a fascinating situation to explain.
