Step by step for registering for online employer return service
All employers must be registered for online services so that they can submit their combined employer returns. Businesses who are already registered don't need to register again.
Use the employer website to:
- stream and verify employer returns from payroll systems
- upload a verified xml file from payroll systems
- e-file your employer returns by manually entering your employees' information
|1.||Tell Revenue Jersey that you're an employer. (This is important because your submissions won't get onto our system unless we have you set up as an employer.) ||
If you're already set up as an employer and you can't remember your business reference, contact the employer returns team. Email CER@gov.je or telephone + 44 (0) 1534 440300 and select option 4.|
Complete this form Employer registration and email it to us at
|2.||When you receive your employer notification from Revenue Jersey with your tax and business reference, you're ready to set up your online account. ||Go to Employer returns website and begin registration. Watch the help video and follow the instructions.|
Once you've completed registration keep a record of your password and 11 digit user id in a safe place.
|3.||After you've registered, you'll receive an activation PIN within 7 to 10 working days. You'll need this to activate your online account.||Go to Employer returns website and log in with your user ID and password. (This is the 11 digit user id you were given and the password you created during the registration stage.)
Because this is your first time logging in you'll be asked to enter your activation PIN. You'll only need to do this once.
If you're using payroll software to stream your employer returns you can now copy the employer returns website user ID and password into your payroll software so it can upload and verify the data.
You're ready to start sending us your employer return information.
If you're using the employer website to manually e-file your employer returns, it's secure and the system keeps a record of all your submissions so you can go back and look at what you've sent in.
If you have any amounts that you need to pay as a result of your employer return you can find out how to do this on our payment page.
