Isle of Man

Department of Space Commerce

As the main contact point in the Isle of Man Government for the Space Industry, our role is to help the public and private sector work together for the benefit of this important sector.

The Department provides a dedicated resource with Ministerial responsibility and is a demonstration of the commitment and focus on Space by the Isle of Man Government.

This track record of commitment, together with the Island's reputation as a supporter of new industries, has resulted in the Isle of Man successfully bidding against Tokyo, Paris and Los Angeles to host the International Institute of Space Commerce.

Since October 2008 the Island has offered a Space MBA which is fully ratified by, and part of the global expansion of, the International Space University.

We are pro-space and together with our zero-rate corporate tax structure, absence of Insurance Premium Tax, commitment to the development of Space Law and our Satellite Registry, we believe the Space Industry can flourish in the Isle of Man.
