Sark is self-governing and does not levy any income tax, property gains tax, capital gains tax, inheritance tax or value added tax. It is located about 9 miles east of Guernsey and 23 miles north of Jersey with access only permissible by boat with regular ferries to Guernsey and Jersey from where there are a number of 40 minute jet flights daily to Gatwick.
Sark’s tranquil beauty is unmarred by cars or tarmac roads with transport restricted to the horse and carriage, the bicycle and good old ‘shank’s pony’ with tractors used for general farm work, carting of goods from the harbour, and personal transport. Everyday shopping facilities are available together with a selection of excellent hotels, restaurants and public houses.
