Companies are being reminded that they have until 31 January 2021 to file their 2019 tax returns.
Revenue Jersey extended the deadline at the end of 2020 due to the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, but companies must meet the new deadline to avoid a late filing penalty.
For companies and other entities that file a corporate tax return, online filing for 2020 goes live on Monday 1 February.
Companies that filed a return in 2019 will see that some details declared in section one of their 2019 tax returns have been included in the 2020 form. These details can be amended if needed. Further guidance can be found here
Companies filing their tax returns for the first time will need to register for online filing. Guidance on how to register can be found here
Comptroller of Revenue, Richard Summersgill said: “We recognise the disruption caused by COVID-19 and the restrictions imposed on Islanders, however the date for companies to complete their 2019 tax return is fast approaching. If they haven’t done so already, I urge them to file their return before the extended deadline to avoid a late filing penalty.”
