E ONLY launched the businesslife.co website a couple of months ago, but we’ve already received


great feedback from many quarters. Not only is it the perfect place to catch up with every issue of the magazine, but it is proving to be incredibly popular with businesses, governments and other organisations who want to get their news out there, as well as keeping up to date with what’s going on in the islands. If you haven’t checked it out already then why not pay it a visit? And while you’re there register for our regular emails or sign up to our RSS. We all know that nothing stays the same,

and the barrage of news and press releases we’re fielding here at businesslife.co headquarters shows the Channel Islands are not immune to change. In these pages you can find out how changes to UK residency laws are set to clarify just where people stand with regard to residency status for tax purposes; how a Privy Council ruling


The new businesslife.co website is a success, and with new rules in residency and Trust law, the rise of video marketing, and mind-reading cat ears (honest), the times really are a’changing


is set to affect the fundamentals of Trust law in Guernsey and, perhaps, beyond; and how the agriculture industry in both islands must continue to adapt to stay viable in the current economic climate. We also question whether online video


is the new must-have marketing tool for all kinds of organisations. We find out who’s getting it right, and wonder whether companies not using it will be left behind. Then we delve into futuristic technology of 3D printers and mind-reading headgear that could be in our homes and offices in the very near future. It’s an interesting look at the shape the world may be taking. It’s hard to believe we’re already in the


latter half of the year, and we hope that you enjoy what remains of the summer. In the meantime, enjoy this issue, and we look forward to hearing what you have to say about it – and the website. n
