About Us

Our Background

In 2023, Baccata proudly celebrates its 25th anniversary, marking a significant milestone for our company. Since obtaining a Trust Company Business (TCB) license from the Jersey Financial Services Commission in 1998, we have made a conscious decision to remain independent and to develop our business through steady organic growth.

Our client base spans the globe and our clients rely on us to establish robust structures that facilitate domestic, family, and international investments.

Baccata is situated in the International Finance Centre of Jersey and we take great pride in our independent owner managed business model. At the helm of our operations since 1999 is our Managing Director, Nicholas Falla, who has played a pivotal role in our continued success.

Fully Regulated

The Baccata Group is fully regulated and licenced in the conduct of trust company business by the Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC) in accordance with the Financial Services (Jersey) Law 1998, as amended (see www.jerseyfsc.org).

To maintain this licence we comply with regulatory and professional requirements including an annual audit, employment of suitable staff and adhering to the Codes of Practice prescribed under the Financial Services (Jersey) Law 1998, as amended.

An International Finance Centre.

Jersey is a world-leading International Finance Centre that has, for over half a century, developed its reputation as a well-regulated, well-governed and well-resourced jurisdiction.

A Unique History

Underpinning the Island’s success as an International Finance Centre, is its unique history and constitutional position. 

As a dependent territory of the British Crown, lying outside both the UK and the EU, Jersey has enjoyed over eight centuries of political autonomy. Today, the Island’s government (the Government of Jersey) uses its independence to provide a business-friendly environment that facilitates global commerce. 

Jersey is proud of this role and the Island’s authorities ensure that it remains among the world’s leading business jurisdictions.

The Island operates within the FATCA and CRS regimes for tax compliance and has a number of double-tax and tax information exchange agreements.

Jersey is also a signatory to the Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters.  

With strong ties to the City of London and less than an hour’s flying time away, Jersey is the ideal place from which to administer and manage global assets.

Annual Lectures

Our lectures put perspective onto something topical and relevant to us all.  By invitation only they attract guests from the wider island community and internationally whether professionals, government, clients or sixth form students.
