I have made a mistake, can I resubmit?
You can't go back and edit the return if you've made a mistake. Write to us with the amended details and this will be kept on file for reference.
Change of ownership
If there's a change of company ownership, you can either ask for the login details from the previous owner or register as a new user.
If you have the login details from the previous owner, you can change the name, email and password associated with that account by clicking on your user account name in the menu bar and then clicking on 'Your account'.
If you can't submit your company return online
We may allow you to submit your company return by paper if any of the following circumstances prevent you from submitting an online return:
you have a disability that prevents you from using a computer
you cannot access an internet connection
you're elderly or infirm and wish to be considered unable to use an online facility because of your age
you're a practising member of a religious society or order whose beliefs oppose the use of electronic methods of communication
You need to write to us with full details. We will then review your application.
Company tax return deadline
It must be completed and submitted by midnight on the 31 December in the year following the year of assessment to which the return relates.
You will be fined £250 if we do not receive the return by this deadline.
Appealing a late return penalty
If you receive a penalty notice you can appeal it in writing within 40 days of the notice date if:
- a failure in the States of Jersey computer system prevented you from submitting the return
- a serious illness, disability or serious mental health condition has made you incapable of submitting your tax return
- your company is not required to submit a return
You must make your claim in writing and include:
your name (or your client's name if you're acting on behalf of someone else)
your authorised agent name, address and contact details (if acting on behalf of someone else)
your tax reference number
full details of why you submitted your online return late or why the penalty should not apply
If there was a failure in the States online system, provide the date you tried to file your return and include details (or a copy print out) of the IT system error message.
Each case will be considered on its own merits. You should still always submit your tax return as soon as you can.
