Well-connected, well-located and well-regulated – with a climate that offers every advantage for well-being and lifestyle, Gibraltar has carved a distinctive niche for itself as a global business location for investors, and for the thousands who come to live and work here.

Compared to Monaco, its Mediterranean neighbour, property represents real value and upside potential, delivering an annual 5-8% return on investment over the last 17 years, driven by local, UK and international buyers, attracted by the territory’s favourable tax regime, and positive economic outlook.

KEY FACTS
ABOUT
GIBRALTAR

Strong economy

With an enviable and consistent growth rate that has not dipped below 10% in nominal terms since 2010, Gibraltar’s service-based and globally-connected economy is among the highest of OECD countries.

Besides tourism, a traditional pillar of the region with the marine services sector, recent impetus has come from remote gambling and financial services. Among other blue-chip players, Gibraltar is home to KPMG; PWC; Deloitte; Grant Thornton; Societe Generale; Ladbrokes, William Hill, Bet365, Betfred, 888, BWin, Gala, Coral, BetVic.

Tax Regime

No VAT, no capital gains tax, and 10% corporation tax make the territory ideal for international business. High-net worth or Category 2 individuals benefit from low income tax, no inheritance tax and no estate duty, not to mention the Rock’s lifestyle opportunities.

Lifestyle

Gibraltar’s mild, sunny climate is unchanging, but the territory’s raised financial profile has come with upgrades to infrastructure and to lifestyle. A modernised airport and three new deep water marinas, new restaurants and, for retail enthusiasts, new retail brands reflect the economy’s dynamism.

Besides scuba, yachting and even skiing a few hours away in Spain’s Sierra Nevada, Gibraltar also offers families a secure, stable environment to call home. A variety of faith-based and secular schools provide education in English from nursery to college level. Higher education is available at the University of Gibraltar, or undertaken elsewhere, with Gibraltar’s students in the UK funded by the territory.

 

Transport and accessibility

Numerous daily flights to and from the UK and elsewhere in the EU make international connections simple. The flight time to London is 2.5 hours. Malaga airport is accessible by car, as is Marbella, Sevilla, Sotogrande and Tarifa in Spain. Morroco is a short yacht or ferry crossing away.

“For buyers looking for a home from home feel Gibraltar can offer the perfect balance between the fine Mediterranean weather and reminders of British life throughout the territory. Despite the economic plight in Spain over the last six years Gibraltar has never gone into recession, has a very low unemployment rate, strong economic growth projection and a housing market that has remained relatively stable during the post-economic crisis years.”
