The Island enjoys an "AAA" credit rating from leading credit agencies, Standard & Poor's and Moodys and is a Tier 1 regulated jurisdiction, with legal and legislative practice and culture based on UK standards and principles.

The IOM, UK & EU

The Isle of Man has a special relationship with the EU, but is subject to less regulation. This relationship allows free movement of industrial and agricultural goods traded between the Island and the EU. Under this special arrangement, the Island neither contributes to, nor receives from the funds of the European Union. Very little EU legislation is directly applicable to the Isle of Man, except in respect of agricultural products and customs matters. The relationship with the UK provides administrative simplicity for Isle of Man-based businesses selling into the UK and EU.

Regulation

The Isle of Man Government works closely with the private sector to develop legislation which helps businesses gain a competitive advantage. It was one of the first jurisdictions in the world to introduce legislation specifically designed to benefit eBusiness and eGaming firms, and has developed a regulatory regime specifically designed to support and protect such companies and their customers. This regulatory framework continues to develop and be responsive to the sector’s needs.

Quality of life

Quality of life on the Island is high. Attractions include affordable high quality residential accommodation, with no restrictions on buying property for those not indigenous to the Island, a distinctive Manx cultural heritage, diverse scenic beauty, low crime rates, excellent schools and medical facilities, plus the opportunity to take part in the widest possible range of sports and leisure activities. There are also excellent hotel and conference venues. At a time when other offshore jurisdictions have become overcrowded and expensive, the Isle of Man can offer affordable high-quality commercial and residential accommodation in a spacious and scenic environment – the Island provides room for businesses, people, and families to grow
