Build for your future in Granite
If high costs and too many choices have been putting you off starting a pension, Granite Retirement Annuity Trust Scheme (“Granite RATS”) could be the solution for you.

Saving for your future is simple with Granite RATS, a local flexible pension scheme tailored for the residents of the Bailiwick of Guernsey.
Collenette Jones are experts in local tax advice and we can help ensure that your RATS is as tax efficient as possible. We have administered and acted as trustee of RATS for almost 20 years. We are always happy to answer questions on how best to contribute funds to and how to withdraw funds from the scheme.
