Uplifting price marked goods

​​Price marked goods

There are special rules which can be applied to certain types of goods ('excepted' goods), in order to comply with pricing regulations.

'Excepted' goods are pre-priced:

  • food (not pet food)
  • books
  • newspapers
  • periodicals (for example magazines)

which have been individually pre-priced before they are imported into Jersey. 
You can also use the rules if the 'digital content' of pre-priced books, newspapers and periodicals is imported into the island but printed locally.

If the goods do not fall into these categories, you can either:
  • sell the goods at the price marked or
  • individually cover or remove the old price and indicate the new selling price
    • on the goods themselves or
    • on a shelf edge ticket or notice in proximity to the goods
You must ensure the old price is not visible.

About price marking

'Excepted' goods

You can sell 'excepted' goods at the price marked on the goods, therefore absorbing GST within this existing price.

If you decide to uplift the price of 'excepted' goods, you can:

  • display the selling price (GST inclusive price) on or alongside the goods, or
  • indicate the percentage or amount to be added to the pre-price which will be added at the till

You will also need additional signage to explain the uplift to the customer. All prices and information should be clear and prominent so the customer has no doubt as to the selling price (GST inclusive price) of the goods.

Example wording:

  • the price you pay is the price on the shelf and not the price on the pack
  • the price of books, newspapers and magazines is the cover price plus 5% GST that will be added at the till

Goods with different weights eg cheese, meat and fish 

Place a notice alongside the food advising the consumer that the selling price is the price marked on the pack plus 5% which will be added at the till.​​​
